Philip Warwick has been involved in ELT for almost 30 years, working in South America, Asia and Europe as a teacher, teacher trainer and academic manager. He’s currently academic manager for a UK based summer school with centres in London, Brighton, Oxford, Cambridge and Canterbury and for an English project in Ilia State University in Tbilisi, Georgia. In between these commitments Phil works as a teacher trainer for Pearson English, and is never happier than when he can step back inside a classroom, which he does in his friend's language school in Brno as often as time allows.

This session will look at some of the techniques we can use to encourage and enhance young learners to help activate their language learning.
