Saitama JALT:

(1) First Class: First Impressions; (2) Pronunciation Methods and Materials

Date: Sunday, January 17th, 2016 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Chris P. Madden

First Class: First Impressions
We only get one chance to make a first impression, and just like any relationship, what happens in that encounter often shapes the outcome. The presenter will share his no-prep activities and team-building techniques that have helped him positively connect with his students for over a dozen years.

Pronunciation Methods and Materials
Techniques and worksheets will be shared and practiced that help your students chip away at fossilization and have fun at the same time. Teachers will walk away from this session with activities, worksheets, ideas and techniques that they'll want to use on Monday.

Annual General Meeting (AGM)
Saitama JALT will hold executive board officer elections at the Annual General Meeting on January 17th, 2016. We are also looking for members who are interested participating in officer positions for our annual conference, The Nakasendo English Conference, and for editors of the Saitama Journal of Language Teaching. Please come out and get involved in these professional development opportunities at Saitama JALT.
