Manageable learning in practice: Clarifying new language
Date: Thursday 20 October
This webinar looks at some of the challenges that face learners when teachers want to clarify new vocabulary or grammar. We will talk about issues such as the amount of language we teach, the kind of language that is 'teachable' and ways in which we can teach it. This session will have a very practical focus on teaching techniques that aim to support learners and make the learning experience more manageable for students. This is an ideal session for less experienced teachers and those wanting to brush up on language clarification teaching skills.
