18/02/2016 - Teacher Training Seminar for Teachers of EnglishThe Department of Anglophone Studies organises Teacher Training Seminar for Teachers of English: Helping students make sense of conditionals & other hypothetical clauses (Wesley Johnson, B.A., DELTA).
Contemporary coursebooks and grammar reference books are not infallible when it comes to explaining / teaching language. One language area that is generally treated in a needlessly complex, random, and abstract way in ELT materials is the area of conditionals and hypothetical structures. The ability to express conditional / hypothetical meaning is an essential part of any student‘s language learning development, and this session will be devoted to unpacking the meaning behind the language usage, and looking at ways to teach this more effectively.
