Gifu JALT:

Getting Back to Basics in English Language Teaching

Date: Saturday, September 18th, 2010 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: David Barker

English language teaching seems to be a steady stream of ever-changing trends. Many highly effective teaching methodologies have fallen out of favour in recent years because they are no longer deemed to be sufficiently 'communicative'. This is often in spite of the fact that a wealth of research evidence exists to show that many of them are, in fact, highly beneficial for learners. David Barker will present a number of 'basic principles' of language learning, and discuss how these can be applied to classroom methodology.
