Dear Colleagues,
We would like to invite you to join us
on Saturday April 8th, 2017 at 11.00 a.m.

ul. Wybrzeże Wyspiańskiego 8, 50-370 Wrocław

for a workshop entitled

Interfacing with Interlanguage
Speaker: John A. Wolf
Language learning forces us to make sense of a foreign language, one way or another. We all create our own version of a target language, and this system is often imperfect. In a typical classroom of mixed abilities, how can teachers address these varying language systems? Where do we start? And how can we be sure all of our learners benefit in the process?
In this workshop we will explore some techniques for addressing language production, both spoken and written, in a way that is beneficial to learners of all levels. We will also discuss ways to quickly and easily grade language feedback tasks, so all learners are challenged and engaged in the process.

The workshop is for all teachers, public and private, with learners from lower secondary school to university. Everyone will be asked to participate throughout the workshop, so please bring a pen and paper, and get a good night sleep beforehand. I hope to see you all there!

Originally from San Diego, California, John A. Wolf moved to Poland in 2006 and began working mainly with younger learners in private language schools. For two years he worked in a public secondary school, and currently he works at the Wrocław University of Science and Technology. John specializes in practical teaching techniques for all aspects of communicative language teaching.

The speaker’s education includes a BA in History from the University of San Diego, and an MA in Applied Linguistics, with a focus on English as a Foreign Language from the University of Massachusetts, Boston.

In his free time John plays with his two children, Maya and Teodor, and his hobbies include snowboarding, basketball, music and American football. He speaks Polish and Spanish, and aspires to learn German and Arabic in the future.

The workshop is free for IATEFL members. For non-IATEFL members the registration fee is 40 PLN, which can be paid on the day. The fee can also be paid in advance directly into IATEFL Poland’s bank account (see details below).
