Communication Skills for the Real World of English
Formatore: Andy Cowle
The English language is changing all the time and so, too, are the approaches to its teaching. Thankfully, around the world now, there is a movement away from the old idea of teaching English simply as a static ‘subject’. Nowadays we teach English as a skill; and not only a skill, but a vital one for learners who will need it for international communication in social life situations or for study. This session looks at ways to bridge the gap between what we teach in class and its purposeful application in the real world.
Starting out as a graduate of German and English Linguistics and an English language teacher, Andy has been in ELT publishing and training for 30 years, working in over 40 countries. Passionate about creative ELT materials and motivating teaching professionals, Andy is known for enthusiastic and practical talks, encouraging teachers to try new ideas, and connecting language learning with the real world. Andy grew up near Liverpool, England, and now lives in Glasgow with his family, dog and guitar. He loves travel, film and playing music.
