Teachers Training workshop on 22 July 2009.
A numbers of teachers from different schools attended the workshop.
This was about developing our students communicative competence. After focusing on the use of two languages by Teachers (English and target-Ethnic Language) in the previous two workshops, in this interactive workshop we learnt about ways of developing the speaking skill of our students. Most teachers like their students to use the target language as often as possible, but often wonder how they can achieve this more often and/or more successfully.
Some of teachers brought examples of successful or unsuccessful practice and/or records (recordings,notes) of the classroom and develop ways of increasing the oral use of the target language. This was also an opportunity to share their experiences and ideas and receive feedback in a friendly and supportive environment.
The next teachers workshop (06/09) is on 26 August 2009, the Thursday from 6 to 8 pm.
