Task Analysis is an EFL term for deciding what activities will work with a given class. This presentation aims to provide a simple checklist any teacher can use, and to look at a number of classic classroom activities to see how well they match the classroom environment of the different attendees.

Vocabulary workshop:
Attendees will be encouraged to share a vocabulary teaching/building idea during the workshop, to share the educational skills of the various attendees. Feel free to bring along your favorite vocabulary-building activity.
