Heinle Event, with the support of APrIR

  1. 1. Heinle Event: Content and language: Towards a perfect partnership What the Heinle and National Geographic partnership can bring to your classroom As twenty-first century learners increasingly use English to communicate with people from other cultures and backgrounds, there is a need for language learning materials which reflect this reality. Heinle, part of Cengage Learning, and National Geographic have partnered to create materials that teach learners about the world in which they live, its peoples, its customs, and its wonders. We introduce materials adapted from National Geographic resources, showing how they motivate and inform learners in their education, workplaces, and social lives. In a fun and relevant way, learners are encouraged to look at their own lives and see it mirrored in the lives of people across the globe. With access to the National Geographic archive of video, images, and content, Heinle creates visually stunning learning materials which: • Help learners to communicate in English in the real world, • Give them a platform to understand other people and cultures, and • Prepare them for the realities of the modern, globalized world of work and education. In this lively session, the presenter introduces the ideas behind this partnership, and the process through which they are turned into materials for learners of English.
