FOURTH ANNUAL CONFERENCE FOR ENGLISH TEACHERS
“Connecting and Innovating For a Brighter Future In ELT”
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
*No one would deny nowadays that English Language Teaching (ELT) has gone through multiple changes as a result of important innovations and adjustments in the areas of teacher training and development, curriculum design and materials production. The growing number of publications, organizations, institutions, materials, tests and conferences on ELT clearly indicate that this field has not remained static and invariable, just the opposite.
In the new approach, teachers cannot be locked into traditional models in response to different forms of communication and communities as they evolve. Teachers are the agent of change and set the right condition for language learning occurs.
This event will give the community of professional English educators a chance to think about the way they teach and the principles which underpin their teaching, meet others within the field, get expert advice, discuss ways to negotiate the pitfalls common in the classroom, enhance their awareness of the current state of teaching English as a foreign language, as well as how to incorporate new strategies and materials into lessons to help learners achieve their goals.
Don’t miss this early morning opportunity, transform your teaching and become a powerhouse in the profession!

CRÍTICAL THINKING AND ITS RELEVANCE IN THE EDUCATION OF THE 21ST CENTURY
The recall of our school years may bring back to many of us tedious moments trying to memorize information usually necessary for a presentation or a series of examinations . The requirement after reading pieces of information was in some way a challenge to our memory and in the best cases to be able to show understanding.
Nowadays in the 21st Century , also called the age of information, students are required to achieve and perform skills present in ‘Critical thinking’ that foster full understanding and informed decisions. Join us in this presentation to share interesting ideas to help our students develop critical thinking through the application of reading comprehension strategies.

MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES: LINKING LEARNERS TO ACTIVITY TYPES
Multiple Intelligences explain the fact that some students enjoy working in groups while others are much more productive working alone or why some learners prefer to draw pictures to remember new vocabulary while others seem to need to just hear a word to be able to use it themselves.
This session will provide some ideas that will enable teachers to adapt some of our course book activities to meet the multiple intelligences and learning styles that our students have.

PREPARING STUDENTS FOR THE REAL WORLD
While we claim to focus on Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) in English language classrooms around the world, teachers spend lots of time preparing students for exams focusing on successfully achieving the next CEFR level. While many English language learners do well on international exams, they lack oral communication fluency. In my role as a teacher and teacher trainer, I have observed lots of classes globally and the same pattern appears everywhere. Classrooms fail to provide enough real world communication opportunities and therefore do not prepare learners for English language communication. In this seminar, we will look in detail at a variety of tasks that provide learners with plenty of real communication opportunites and incorporate those 21st Century Skills essential in today’s world.

GLOBAL SCALE OF ENGLISH: AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO SUPPORT MORE LEARNERS
For many of us the word “assessment” evokes anxiety, but, in good hands, assessment can be a valuable tool to inform students, teachers and institutions about how much progress they are making. This workshop looks at recent research carried out by Pearson with teachers from over 50 countries around the world to develop the Global Scale of English (GSE) Learning Objectives. These describe exactly what it means to be at a level of proficiency in English in terms of what a learner can do. They are an open access resource for teachers and learners worldwide to use to help create their own courses and syllabuses and plan their own personal path to English proficiency.

INTEGRATING RELIGION AND LEARNING IN THE ESL GRAMMAR CLASS
One of the main problems we all face, when teaching English is maintaining students’ interest throughout our lessons. Consequently, we often have to be very creative in the techniques and resources we use in the classroom. An interesting and funny way of maintaining students’ motivation and interest is the use of stories and songs in English. They represent an important input for the learners and can massively improve and extend the students’ vocabulary, imagination, critical thinking, fluency and way of talking and speaking about different things. In this workshop, we will focus on practical examples on how to use religious stories and songs in class to improve student’s engagement and make them more productive.
