Description

Mastering a foreign language is a life skill- but are our students really aware of that? And how can teachers make language learning more engaging, more real for students? How motivate and inspire them?

This course will provide participants with the necessary knowledge to properly integrate various educational tools to support each student’s learning style and thus fostering their motivation, applying the Multiple Intelligence Theory. Moreover, the course will also focus on both traditional and digital tools that help to develop students language skills through story-telling, music, cinema, arts, and creativity.

Besides, participants will learn about some of the most relevant current theories in Linguistics and Psycholinguistics, applied to language teaching and language learning, gaining practical experience in the best hacks to achieve students engagement.

By the end of the training, participants will be able to confidently integrate a variety of research-based strategies into their lesson plans and maintain an effective learning environment in their language class.

Extra curricular activities included: Guided city tours and 1 day cultural excursion (usually on Saturday).
