Teaching adults is a continuous challenge and a field we are not trained at when studying to become teachers. What do adult learners need? How can we help them meet their objectives? How can we help them use their own tools to learn English? Teaching adults is a continuous challenge but it can also be a rewarding and enriching experience for both teacher and student.
In this give-and-take workshop, we will be discussing some assumptions and ideas – even preconceptions- we may have about this area of teaching and then picturing some real-life scenarios to exchange ideas, experiences, queries, resources and strategies to grow together personally and professionally. We want you to feel reassured you have what it takes to teach adult students!
When? Saturday September 8th – 9 to 12
