have the pleasure to invite you to the webinar

which will take place on Wednesday, 1st December 2021, from 20.30 to 21.30 CET.

Your registration will be made via Zoom platform

This webinar is titled:

Teaching spoken English means more grammar – not less!

Brief summary:

In this talk, I will be exploring some fundamental problems with the way grammar is all-too often thought about and presented to students and reporting on what happens to students as a result. I shall then be considering ways in which a more serious consideration of how language is actually used when we speak can lead to a much more sensible, practical attitude to grammar in the classroom.

After the webinar all participants will receive a certificate of participation.

IATEFL Poland members have priority of registration for this webinar.
Do not delay. The number of participants is limited.
