Preparation Time – Zero! – a webinar by Nick Michelioudakis

Dear Colleagues,

IATEFL Poland and Nick Michelioudakis, EL Teacher Trainer

have the pleasure to invite you to the webinar

Preparation Time – Zero!


How long do you spend preparing for a lesson? Methodology courses would tell you that you should devote at least 20 minutes to the task. The problem is that here on planet Earth, things are a little different; very often you only have 2-3 minutes – you may even have to walk into a class and start playing by ear. This workshop is for people who live on planet Earth.

So what is the idea? The idea is that when in trouble you can fall back on a ‘Reusable Lesson Plan’ – that is a series of 10 simple steps which will allow you to deliver a very good lesson, at any level, using different materials each time. And next week you can pull off the same trick again! 😊  In class, you will only need a computer, a projector and an internet connection. And no preparation time at all. How does it all work? Well, join us for the webinar and see for yourself! 😊
