West Tokyo JALT:

Addressing Relevance and Motivation in English Language Classrooms

Date: Saturday, October 19th, 2002 Time: 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Speaker: Jonah Glick, Pearson Education Japan

Motivation is crucial for successful learning. What techniques should we employ to encourage motivation and maximize learning in our language classrooms? Two ways are:

  1. to ensure learners talk about what interests them; and
  2. to teach language for specific real-world functions.
High-interest, relevant content, presented at an appropriate level, and clear, achievable task-based activities, will further enhance learning and involvement. This presentation will explore these and other issues. Activities will be drawn from appropriate new materials from Longman.
