20 Jul New skills for language teachers – a journey into 21st century competencies acquisition
August 03, 11:30 – 12:30 local time Bucharest, Romania
The webinar will focus on 21st century competencies and how they can be integrated in the language classroom.
The techniques showed in the webinar are part of a new methodology which moves the teachers’ focus from language acquisition to life competencies. They are part of a new course which is moderated and certified by International House Assessment Unit: “Your Students today, Leaders tomorrow”
I will illustrate some coaching techniques that can help language teachers to boost students’ life competencies such as communication, critical thinking, problem solving and teambuilding.
Language teachers can guide their students to perform at their best because the language classroom is the perfect place where life competencies can be practiced and enhanced.
