  • title: The Joy of Teching English in a Child's World, Charles Vilina
    The world of children is one of vivid imagination, pure creativity, and boundless energy. As teachers of English, we have an open invitation to enter that world with the gift of a new language. With practical tools such as thematic lessons, patterned chants and playful songs, as well as activities that encourage cooperation, we can offer our students a joyful and memorable experience every time they enter our classrooms.
  • title: Games that Make English Come Alive, Helene J. Uchida
    Veteran English teacher and teacher-trainer, Helene J. Uchida, will share with you methods to make English come alive through games and materials which captivate young children and lead them on the road to thinking and interacting in English.
  • title: Don't Judge a Book by Its Cover, Julian Warden in Nagasaki and Stephen Crabbe in Hiroshima
    Join us in this presentation where we explore the world of graded readers, storybooks, and storytelling. This hands-on workshop will look at "before, " "while, " and "after " activities that create an interactive and communicative class. Participants will leave with practical ideas and activities that can be immediately used in class the next day!
