Published on

Учить детей всегда интересно — они впитывают всё как губка и часто радуют нас своими успехами в изучении иностранных языков. Однако не все дети усваивают материал одинаково легко и быстро, ведь они такие разные. Задача учителя — обеспечить на уроке условия, при которых все без исключения дети активно развивали бы свои навыки и максимально использовали свой потенциал. На нашем семинаре мы обсудим, как можно достичь этой цели в группах, где учатся дети с разным уровнем владения языком, и как сделать изучение английского интересным и полезным для всех.
