Where teachers meet and learn

Lausanne - 11th November 2017 - Using Literature to Teach English

Graham Workman’s seminar will take place on a Saturday morning at the Continental Hotel opposite Lausanne station.  The first half of the seminar will provide four different ways of exploiting poems so they can be used for vocabulary development, creative writing and practice with the rhythm and sounds of English.  The second half will present and practise three ways of getting learners to discuss short stories.  Participants will be provided with copies of short stories to read before the seminar and numerous further resources will be provided on the day.
