Workshop for Primary School Teachers: Creating an Information Gap

Date: Friday, September 17th, 2004 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: Hamish Buchan (British Council Tokyo , ELT Projects Manager)

For true communication to take place there is a need for the students to look for unknown information. One way to promote communication in class is through information gap activities in which the students have to ask questions to get information, which they don't know. In this workshop, the teachers will try out a number of information gap activities and get the opportunity to create activities for themselves. How to register: Please send e-mail to
