Teaching Grammar Without Teaching Grammar

In this talk, we will explore ways of subtly integrating grammar tasks in all skills. Grammar is present everywhere and there is no language without it. However, teaching Grammar communicatively is often a riddle for teachers. How can we design grammar tasks that are creative and meaningful? How can we teach grammar "in disguise"? Τhe talk will include hands-on examples from soft-CLIL and values-based ap-proaches.

A Creative Approach to Exam Preparation Classes

Dr Luke ProdromouTeacher, Teacher Trainer Author
This talk explores a more creative approach to exam preparation. Testing is important and should be part and parcel of an integrated approach to teach-ing as education and not something which undermines our attempts to teach effectively. Testing is often used as a short cut to extrinsic motivation – but, I argue, we can make test preparation more a process of intrinsic motivation by making it more creative. I suggest ways of testing which make it consistent with good teaching practice, where motivation addresses the whole person and not just the person-as-exam-candidate – and which gets the best exam results
