Linking your classroom to the wider world
Are you making the right connections? In this session we will learn ways of linking songs, stories and school subjects to empower language acquisition. This will energise your teaching and make your students’ classroom experience more relevant to their everyday lives. We will also look at some ways of teaching important life skills and values, thereby building the learning community in your classes. Transform the way young learners see English and develop language ability by exploring the powerful connections all around them.
