A four-part teacher training workshop
As teachers we continue to get the most growth and richest development when we are active members of a community of practice with other teachers, in which we can share ideas, tips, and strategies, as well as discuss some of the teaching challenges we face. In this four-part workshop, ‘Bridges’, we will further our learning work together with sessions on idioms, games, reaching different learning styles, and task-based instruction. The bridges we will build in these sessions between our shared knowledge and experiences will provide firm foundations for our students to traverse on their journeys towards ever greater English language communicative fluency.
Session 3: Task-Based Learning
In our last workshop of the year we’ll explore the criteria, goals, and structure of Task-Based Learning (TBL). In keeping with our experiential-learning approach—as well as the festive season—we will ourselves complete a holiday-oriented group task, and reflect on the ways in which it could best help our students facilitate their creativity, collaboration, and language use and development.
Remember to bring your passport or driver's license.
Do you have a university degree in a language-related field and/or little experience in translation? Are you tired of only learning theory? We bet that you are ready to practice and unlock your full potential. So leave your cozy bookworm nest and conquer this world with your translator's talent!
Interpreters and translators work this hard and harder to connect the world through language. This week we'll be honoring our translation and interpretation professionals through a series of fun and informative activities.
We would like to welcome all beginner-level English learners every Friday from 5:00 - 6:00 PM for a general English course at America House. This course will cover all the skills you need to improve your communication in English.
