Session 30: Encouraging Students to Speak English in Class | 6/06/2024

Do you struggle to keep your students speaking in English in your monolingual classes? Do they tend to drift back into their native language when they are working together? We understand that achieving full immersion can be a daunting challenge, but it’s also the most effective way to master a new language. In this webinar, the last for the 2023/24 Academic Year, we will look at tactics and techniques that you can use to encourage your students to speak more English in their English lessons. We will talk about the reasons why they prefer their native language and practical ways that you can motivate them to switch into English for the duration of their lessons, maybe even beyond! As always, we will look at many activities that may be incorporated into lessons, all of which will be compiled in a detailed handout including worksheets and links, which will be sent to all participants in the webinar.
