Attention Deficit, Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyslexia... The list goes on and on. In this informal session we will share our opinions about how these special conditions interfere with our lessons and how different teachers have been dealing with them.
Should we? Shouldn't we? But how can we get students to learn if we don't? And how much of it should we allow them to use? These are questions we've all asked ourselves at some time or another. In this informal session we'll be talking about these and other issues related to L1 in the classroom.
It is so frustrating marking tests and realizing what we thought our students had learnt isn't actually there, isn't it? We wonder what went wrong and what we can do to make it better. In this informal session we'll be sharing stories and listening to how some of us deal with it.
Our next event "Back to school" takes place on Sep 28, 2016 at 15:30

We all have them. The kids sitting at the back that make a classroom look like a gladiator arena. Kids unwilling to learn, disrupting the lesson every 5 minutes. Are they really that terrible? We’ll be looking at a few ideas that might help them and you have a better lesson.
It is quite common to have students who are semimotivated or unmotivated passively waiting for the end of the lesson. The question is how to make the unmotivated or
semimotivated students speak? As teachers who too has faced the problem of passivity, we will share some strategies that have proven to be effective in getting students to speak more.
Since incorporating cultural material into the teaching syllabus not only makes learners familiar with the English/American culture but helps them to recognize and combine form and meaning in their language learning, in this session we shall be looking at numerous ideas regarding how to integrate culture into the textbooks and classroom activities.
You may be teaching a class which has students who are clearly of different levels in their English language skills. In this workshop we will be looking at several strategies that a teacher can use to deal with this situation, engage all the students and make for a more homogeneous class.
How can you adapt and supplement your course book to make the class you are going to teach more exciting? How can you move from passively teaching the book you’re assigned to active teaching and active learning? And when are you going to find the time to do all of this? In this workshop we shall consider approaches to personalise the lessons and make them more engaging for both you and your students.
Being a teacher sometimes feels like being a magician and pulling some rabbits out of a hat. By this time most teachers are running out of ideas, so in this session we’ll be looking at some hands on, readymade activities you can use in your next lesson.
