The workshop will focus on a variety of techniques that teachers can use to help develop and implement lessons for classes with students of different levels and learning styles.
During the first part of the workshop, we will focus on a variety of pronunciation activities that promote student participation and kinesthetic learning techniques. Participants will look at some very basic activities that can be used to help students overcome difficulties with stress and pronunciation.
After a short break, we will then turn our attention to speaking activities. It’s important for students to practice speaking as much as possible in the classroom. Participants will look at and analyze several different speaking activities to determine which are best for their students. They will also look at ways they can create more opportunities for their students to speak in class.
Mr. Kevin Gilman (M.A. ESL) has taught English to students in the USA, Argentina, Malawi, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. He is currently an US. English Language Fellow teaching at Hanoi Metropolitan University, Vietnam.
