English Workshops with Macmillan Education - Torino

Torino, Auditorium IIS Copernico-Luxemburg di Corso Caio Plinio, 2, giovedì 14 febbraio 2019, ore 8:30

Sessioni di aggiornamento didattico e formativo rivolte a tutti i docenti di lingua inglese.

Teaching and assessing writing at B1 and B2 levels - Richard Twigg
Writing in English is probably the weakest skill in Italy. With this in mind, the session will look at ways of teaching and assisting students with this “forgottten skill”. In order to be able to fully support your students, you also need to be familiar with the marking/grading criteria in the tests/exams that your students will be taking.

Invalsi: how to approach exam preparation in class and use other Language Qualifications to your advantage - Marco Colciago

The Invalsi test is a "standard" test, very similar to those that have been used for many years now in the anglo-saxon education system. How can we prepare students for it? What are the similarities with other Language Qualifications that students might have already obtained and how can we use them to our advantage?

Teaching students how to listen - Richard Twigg

Listening is often seen as a passive skill and hence some believe it is not possible to actively teach students how to listen. In this session we will look at how this can be done and why students sometimes have difficulty is hearing and hence understanding everything that they hear.

Richard Twigg, Academic Director at International house, Teacher and Teacher trainer.

Marco Colciago worked in England as a Head of Department for Grammar Schools in the North of England and in Kent for 15 years, teaching Languages to students aged 11 to 18 and preparing them for their GCSE and A-level examinations; he was also an examiner for AQA, the biggest exam provider of the UK, preparing and delivering State exams sat by students all over the country.

Webinar - Optimise your exam preparation classes through personalisation

Online, giovedì 14 febbraio 2019, ore 16:30


Preparing teenagers for exams can be soulless and dry at times, and the tasks we get our students to do can be divorced from their lives and personal experience. In this session, we’re going to look at how to bring in an element of student-centred personalisation to exam classes to aid interest and motivation. We'll consider what personalisation means, particularly in terms of ELT, and why personalisation is important and useful for exam-preparation classes with teenagers. We'll explore how to keep personalisation teacher-driven while making sure it’s student-centred, and look at aspects of personalisation built into the course Optimise. We'll also cover some simple, practical and effective ways to further consolidate and extend exam-practice material through personalisation.

Malcolm Mann is an English language teacher and materials writer. He is the author or co-author of numerous ELT courses, including Laser, Destination and the new Optimise series (all published by Macmillan), and has given presentations in many countries around the world. Malcolm lives and works in Greece, where he holds joint responsibility for the production of the L.A.A.S. English language exams. He is a former Chairperson of TESOL Greece. In his spare time, he's a partner in a bike shop and café/bar in Athens.
