Teaching & learning English as a life skill

Trener: dr Grzegorz Śpiewak

Streszczenie sesji

As modern foreign language professionals, we hear more and more that a modern course concept needs to simultaneously target our modern learners’ language needs and provide a range of professional, academic and social/ personal skills that learners will need in order to succeed in the 21st century. Does this sound like a new challenge to you? Or perhaps as an opportunity to enhance the value of English teaching – both within your institution and to the market outside?

I do hope that after my session you will think it is the latter. My aim is [a] to offer a new rationale for selecting our teaching content to meet the needs of 21st century learners, big and small, and [b] to suggest a few ideas for how to exploit that attractive content in ways that will build learners’ higher order skills - through, with and in English - as a vital instrument of success in their life beyond the classroom.
