Webinar 7: Focus on Form and Focus on Meaning in English Language Teaching

30-08-2020 9:00 am -11:30 am
Free

Drawing on Littlewood’s continuum From focus on forms to focus on meaning (2002, p.322; 2013, p.14), this webinar aims to review and open a discussion on the pedagogy accompanying some of the current curricula in use at secondary ELT in Vietnam. The webinar will start with an analysis of the continuum in relation to CLT and TBLT – the teaching approaches in practice at Vietnamese schools. Variations of curriculum design and class activities will be addressed in this section. In the next two sections, textbooks and lesson plans from the mainstream curricula (i.e. the Tieng Anh series by MOET) and some others in use at private schools will be reviewed against the continuum to examine their focuses and thus, their potential for communicative language learning. Finally, a discussion on variations for implementing the textbooks prescribed in current secondary ELT settings will be open. Ideas and opinions in how to teach communicatively using the textbooks and materials available are welcome from the webinar panel and the audience.
