11:05 – 11:30 

Life Skills in the English Classroom

Edward Evans, PhD, CELTA, Delta, CELTA trainer, Director of Studies at BKC-IH Moscow. Edward has been teaching students of all ages in Moscow since 2006. His interests include teacher development and investigating online tools.

Many popular coursebooks for teenagers include a section on Life Skills. What is the relevance of this to our students? How can we get them to engage with the task? How can we make sure students are improving their language during these activities? We will answer these questions and discuss how to get these lessons to work in the classroom.

11:30 – 12:00 

Teaching IELTS Lexically

Alex Walls is the Director of Studies at Windsor English Language School and has been teaching since 2012. He holds CELTA, Delta and a number of other certifications. He has presented at several conferences in Moscow and online, and is the winner of the IATEFL 2020 LAM SIG scholarship.

The lexical approach is gaining considerable traction these days in General English classrooms. However, in exam classes we may be so preoccupied with teaching the exam format, that we miss the opportunity to teach new language. In this workshop we consider a few techniques to incorporate a more lexical approach into our IELTS lessons that will help students to identify and learn new lexical chunks in their listening and reading practice and deploy them effectively in the writing and speaking.

12:00 – 12:30 

To err is human - on how to respond to learners’ mistakes

Dr Karolina Kotorowicz-Jasińska is an experienced teacher from Poland, who has worked with various age groups at different levels of proficiency.  As a teacher trainer, she has given numerous talks unraveling the mysteries of ELT methodology and advising practicing teachers how maximise their teaching potential. Karolina is also an assistant professor at an English Department at UMCS University in Lublin, as well as an author of many coursebooks and ELT articles.

Let’s face it – all students make mistakes, whatever the proficiency level or age group. The question is: should we correct all of those errors? Or perhaps there are some good reasons to let at least some of them go? The webinar will aim to answer these questions as well as present a number of techniques of dealing with mistakes during a lesson.

12:30 – 13:00 

Getting your students to interact with the NILE Online Classroom Activities, Interaction and Motivation Course

Susi Pearson has been involved in teaching and teacher training in ELT for over 20 years, working for extended periods in Portugal, Brazil and Poland. She is CELTA and Delta qualified and holds an MA in Professional Development for Language Education.
She is now based in Norwich, UK where she is a Senior Trainer at NILE, working on Language Development and Methodology courses, including CELTA & Delta. She also works with NILE Online courses as course writer, editor, digitiser and tutor as well as providing support for tutors who are new to the online environment.

We will start this online talk by considering why it is good to get students to interact in class. We will then look at why it is sometimes hard to get learners to do this, and suggest some possible solutions and activities to really get your learners interacting in the English language learning classroom. This is one of the issues which is at the heart of our eight-week, fully-tutored NILE Online Classroom Activities, Interaction and Motivation course. I will then give a brief introduction to the course which is an excellent methodology refresher for teachers looking for effective and engaging activities to use in their classroom.

13:00 – 13:10

14:00 - 15:00

Accuracy and Fluency: getting the balance right

Nicholas Beare has been involved in English Language Teaching for more than thirty years, both as a materials writer and teacher trainer.  His career has focused on materials production and teacher training in Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia and North Africa. His publications with Macmillan ELT include Winners, Evolution, Sunrise and Brainy for Primary, and United, Get Set! and Stepping Up! for Secondary. His most recent publication is Level 1 of the international primary course Share It!

We know that have to strike a balance between accuracy and fluency in our classes.  It's easy enough to focus on accuracy, but helping our students with fluency can be more difficult. Even the benefits of focusing on fluency (and putting accuracy in second place) can be difficult for students - and parents - to grasp. This session will first deal with why it's so important for students to have fluency practice, and then provide some enjoyable and useful activities to improve our students’ fluency.

15:00 - 16:00

Optimise 2020! Engaging and equipping teens for exam success

Claire Potter has over 27 years’ experience in the ELT world. After teaching in Japan and Córdoba she moved to Sevilla, where she has been Director of Teacher Training at IH Sevilla since 2004. She works as a tutor on Cambridge CELTA, DELTA and IH Young Learner courses, and is also a course assessor for all three. Her passions include motivating teens and focusing on real communication in the classroom.

In this session we will focus on how to prepare our teen students for Cambridge exams in a motivating manner, but with a clear awareness of what is required to achieve exam success with the new KET and PET rubrics in play from 2020.  Attention will be given to the new formats and revised tasks, inputting practical ideas which optimise engagement and learning.

16:00 - 17:00

Teaching Lower Levels

Rhona Snelling is a freelance ELT teacher, editor, and author.

Rhona has authored numerous ELT course books and been nominated for an ESU English Language Award. She specialises in lower levels and exams, and is the author of Speak Your Mind Starter level.­

Why are lower levels (pre-A1 to A2) sometimes perceived as challenging to teach? What was your own experience of learning a second or additional language? In this webinar, Rhona Snelling explores what sets lower levels apart from other levels and how teachers can confidently approach teaching their classes. This interactive webinar will cover techniques and points to remember, as well as some practical classroom activities.

17:00 - 18:00

Working with Images

Chia Suan Chong is a writer, communication skills trainer and a teacher trainer.

Chia is a regular ELT conference speaker and holds a DELTA and a Masters in Applied Linguistics and ELT.

We encounter multiple images throughout our day –advertisements, photos on our phone, road signs, magazines, pictures people post online…Images are a large part of our consciousness, can increase motivation and add colour to our classes. Yet we often don’t exploit them enough in our lessons. This session looks at practical ideas and activities we can use to work with images – those that both teachers and students bring into the classes. We will share our ideas on how we can allow images to become the motivational stimulus they are for conversation and the impetus to learn the language we need to describe them.
