Questions many teachers often ask is ‘How do we improve and maintain our own level of English?’ ‘Can this be done autonomously without feedback from someone more proficient?’ ‘How can our learning process be made more time-efficient?’ Although attending a general English course or working through a course book by yourself may initially seem like a good idea, in reality we rarely have the time or motivation to do either of those – even if we fully acknowledge the importance of our language development.
In this interactive talk, we will explore a number of practical ideas from Learning While Teaching for integrating language development into the processes of lesson planning and delivery. If you’re struggling with time, motivation, or finding opportunities for working on your own language proficiency, join Daria to discover some ideas that you can start putting into practice today and will share her own experience along the way.
This session is designed for language teachers around the world who teach a language different from their first language (L1) and are looking to improve their proficiency in the language they teach, but are unable to take part in a language course. It is also for first language speaker teachers who may be recently qualified and lack confidence in their knowledge of the language they are teaching and are looking to improve their expertise and build confidence in explaining the rules of the language they are teaching to their students as they teach.
As part of your interactive talk ticket, you will also receive £10 off Learning While Teaching, by Daria Vaskova. This will help you to continue autonomously improving your own level of English through classroom practice.
