Any English as a foreign teacher can join. Whether you are an experienced or a novice teacher, this is your chance to learn from some of our expert trainers completely free of charge.

We even throw in free coffee and snacks to keep those energy levels high between sessions! Enjoy our sunny garden in the break and network with other TEFL teachers.

12.15 – 13.00 The Art of Giving Good Instructions

Perhaps more than most professions, English language teachers should be really, really good at giving clear, comprehensible instructions. And, most of the time, this is true! In this practical workshop for language teachers of all languages we’ll review and reexamine best practices for giving instructions for activities, both spoken and written and online. But we’ll also look at how this is a useful and important skill for our learners and practical ways we can help them develop it.
