ABSTRACT

Teaching Advanced Learners – Leading the Way with English File

How do we keep advanced level learners challenged and inspired, when they feel like they might have hit a plateau in their language learning? What support is there for teachers who feel pressure in creating level-appropriate lessons, or daunted at the prospect that their learners might know more than them, when it comes to certain language points?

This session will highlight some issues that might arise, both for the students and teachers, and will explore an array of solutions to combat these. You will gain practical tips and ideas to implement in your advanced classes, along with some food for thought on how you can develop your own approaches.
