English pronunciation for Brazilian Portuguese speakers

The increasing use of English as an international lingua franca means new challenges and opportunities for teaching pronunciation and listening skills, as learners will need to understand and be understood by a wide variety of English speakers, both native and non-native. How can teachers prepare them to cope with such diversity? This workshop features practical tasks, informed by relevant theory, which participants could try in their own classrooms.

Raising young Learner´s motivation to improve student involvement in their Learning 

One of the issues teachers in Brazil face in Primary schools is classroom management. To 'grab' the students’ attention and foster a love of learning are both challenging tasks. This session will cover some practical ideas how to tackle the issue based on content from the new Primary English course - Guess What!. Teachers will also get a glimpse of how and why Guess What! was developed, and what motivated the writing of the material.

She has conducted educational workshops throughout Asia, The United States, Central and South America, and Turkey.
