On the Go: Addressing Motivation through Travel English

Date: Sunday, October 13th, 2002 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Jonah Glick, Longman ELT, Pearson Education Japan

Motivation is crucial for successful learning. What techniques should we employ to encourage motivation and maximize learning? Two ways are to ensure learners talk about what interests them and to teach language for specific real-world functions. We can teach travel English to enable learners to accomplish specific functions that the learners perceive as relevant to their own lives, and we can encourage learners to think about the language and discover for themselves.
