There will be two workshops in the afternoon:
- Making Sense of Lexis: presenting real language at higher levels
Learners of English in this fast-paced, competitive world need language that has a high ‘surrender value’ – that is, expressions they can pick up and immediately begin to use in a variety of communicative contexts. Language which meets this need includes collocations, lexical phrases, semi-fixed expressions and fixed expressions – all of them essential for improving fluency and naturalness of speech, and helping learners progress beyond an intermediate (B1) level. These chunks of language can seem awkward to handle compared with single words and many grammatical structures. We’ll therefore look at practical ideas for how to select, present and meaningfully practise this kind of language.

- Taking Advantage of Your Material
Future trends in business English teaching are more flexibility, mobile learning possibilities and increased skills-based language training.
How can the language teacher support learners to reach their communicative goals by making use of a variety of sources?
In this workshop, we will take a look at those future trends and how we can cope with them.
Examples will be taken from the “Business Advantage” series.
