ALL Manchester Speaking Skills: Let the Learners Speak!

February 29, 2020 @ 10:00 - 12:30

Let the Learners Speak ! Developing confident speakers in the early stages of language learning with Greg Horton

It is several years since Greg Horton came to deliver his inspiring sessions on ‘Speaking’ for us, and we knew that it really was time to invite him back! Are your students confident speakers? Do they enjoy speaking the language? Confidence and enjoyment in speaking a language go hand-in-hand … If you want to make speaking the language an active, dynamic, engaging and fun experience which will develop confidence in your learners, this is a man who can show you how!

Greg Horton is an Advanced Skills Teacher with over thirty years of classroom experience. He has enjoyed roles as SSAT Lead Practitioner and County MFL Adviser. Greg has led many training events and presented at national conferences. His work has gained widespread recognition and has been featured on Teachers’ TV. In 2011 he was the recipient of a UK German Teacher of the Year Award. Now in his twilight years (his words!), Greg hopes he can still help to inspire the next generation of language teachers, as well as current ones!

Please note that all are welcome. The workshop is suitable for language teachers at all levels, and many of the activities demonstrated will be transferable to the teaching of all languages. Some of the resources will, no doubt, be German-specific, but the ideas behind them are guaranteed to get the ‘little grey cells ticking’ in a most imaginative way.
