ABSTRACT

English Language Teaching – One Size Does not Fit All!
Over the years, teachers and English colleges have employed methods of teaching English which were popular for a while but were then replaced by a new method or even a fad! Today, teachers no longer rely on one method, book or approach. Today’s teachers are expected to be highly qualified and experienced to ensure that lessons engage their students and meet their needs. This workshop will demonstrate the most effective methods of English language teaching that today’s learners enjoy. Participants will have the chance to experience these methods first hand and therefore gain a better understanding of how they can support and encourage their family members and friends who are learning English.
