Workshop 1(Live lesson with children and workshop) Urszula Kropaczewska Gdańsk

Teaching culture to young learners with the use of Magic Machine

During the lesson I would like to present some involving activities for children to be aware of countries, nationalities, capital cities and landmarks. During the workshops teachers will have the chance to see how the machine works and create their own materials to use with their own students

Live lessons with real learners in the real classroom.

Visiting skilled colleagues as a means to improve our own skills is hardly a new idea. All kinds of professionals use Classroom Observation as a way to learn more and more deeply about their craft. Professional educators have been doing so for years.

Workshop 2Mark AndrewsGdańsk, Toruń and Poznań

Understanding ourselves as teachers better and understanding our classrooms better

Mark will share ideas of where we are now in EFL give some practical ideas of what a genuinely communicative classroom might look like and leave SPACE for TEACHERS to express their own concerns about their classrooms.

Workshop3Mark AndrewsToruń and Poznań

Observing Language Change as a means of developing as a teacher and as a tool for broadening our students' horizons and making them more open-minded as people as well as users of English.

400 years ago we had privateers, pirates really who went out into the world and stole from others, now we have brexiteers. Remainers have become remoaners and the Oxford English Dictionaries word of the year in 2017 was youthquake.

As language teachers, keeping abreast of language change is one of many skills in our professional repertoire and one which potentially can be mobilised to teach our students to be more flexible and more comfortable with ambiguity and change.

Understanding language change helps us to be more flexible too in our teaching of grammar and where we stand on our attitudes to building confidence and the fluency and accuracy debate.

This is a new and fresh look at a topic which challenges some of the ways we were taught to teach language.  Our students live in a different world now to the one many of us grew up in and attitudes to language have changed too.
