ПРОГРАММА СЕССИЙ

19 October 2019

09:30 - 10:00 Registration, socialising and networking

10:00 - 11:30 Session 1: Vocabulary and Grammar: bridging the gap.
Recent language descriptions pose a challenge to the traditional Words+Grammar model and suggest that an important part of language acquisition is the ability to comprehend and produce lexicon-grammatical phrases as holistic units or chunks. However, course books and other language teaching materials still maintain the dichotomy devoting separate sections to grammar and vocabulary. We will examine the teaching of grammar structures ''lexically'' and discover simple techniques for teaching vocabulary more ''grammatically''.

11:30 - 11:45 Coffee-break, socialising and networking

11:45 - 13:15 Session 2: From grammatical mistakes to lexical opportunities
When marking L2 students' writing teachers are naturally drawn to mistakes in grammar. However, very often a grammar mistake masks a gap in learners' vocabulary knowledge. We will explore how error correction can be given a more lexical focus and how a more integrated approach to reading and vocabulary can stimulate better lexical production in writing.

13:15 - 14:30 Lunch break

14:30 - 15:30 Session 3: Recording, revising and recycling lexis

While most teachers understand the importance of teaching vocabulary in chunks, few actually know how to go about it. The purpose of this practical workshop is to provide fresh ideas on how to revise and recycle collocations your learners come across. Be prepared for a wide variety of activities suitable for different levels, ages and learning styles. No time to plan your lesson? There will be some "last minute" solutions which require a bit of thinking
on your feet. And do not forget to bring your scissors - you might have to do some cutting!

15:30 - 16:00 Coffee-break, socialising and networking

16:00 - 17:30 Session 4: Revising texts (for maximum linguistic benefit)

We often encourage students to infer words from the context as they read and, as a result, they fail to notice useful lexis in reading texts. This is especially true  in the case of chunks consisting of the words students already know, for example run+a risk. This session demonstrates a series of activities aimed at drawing students' attention to useful lexis in texts.

20 October 2019

10:00 - 11:30 Session 1: Online lexical tools (lab)

In this workshop we will look at a number of linguistic tools available on the web which can help teachers prepare for effective vocabulary teaching. Some of these tools can also be used by learners to build their vocabulary and go beyond users to become researchers of the language.

11:30 - 11:45 Coffee-break, socialising and networking

11:45 - 13:15 Session 2: Quizlet - more than just flashcards (lab)
Quizlet is an online tool and mobile app for creating flashcards. The standard format for vocabulary flashcards is a word or item on one side and L1 translation, definition or picture on the other. Studying vocabulary with flashcards aids memorization and recall but unfortunately doesn't give learners much information about how new words should be used. We will look at simple strategies you can use and ''tweaks'' you can add to Quizlet flashcards to make them more effective and usage-oriented.

13:15 - 14:30 Lunch break

14:30 - 15:45 Session 3: Working with video: making the most of the language

Video is often used in the EFL classroom for listening comprehension activities, facilitating discussions and, of course, language work. But how can you exploit silent films without any language in them? In this interactive workshop, we'll explore ways of generating language from silent clips.

15:45 - 16:15 Coffee-break, socialising and networking

16:15 - 17:30 Session 4: TBA (depends on your needs and requests on Day 1)

17:30 - 18:00 Bonus Session 5: Professional development in the Digital Age

Thanks to the Internet, you can now develop professionally without leaving the comfort of your home. This talk introduces teachers to various professional development opportunities afforded by the Internet such as webinars, online conferences and social media.

18:00 - 18:30 Closing

С РАЗРЕШЕНИЯ ОЛЬГИ РОТКО, ОРГАНИЗАТОРА ТРЕНИНГОВ LEO SELIVAN В РОССИИ, ПУБЛИКУЮ ОТЗЫВЫ КОЛЛЕГ, КОТОРЫЕ УЖЕ ПОСЕТИЛИ СЕМИНАРЫ LEO

1 / 2

“Я тоже была на этом тренинге Лео Селивана в Москве. Отличное мероприятие не только для начинающих преподавателей, но и для опытных. Это были два дня практических занятий, где мы увидели практическое применение всего того, что Лео описал в книге, и о чем пишет в своем чудесном блоге. Очень рекомендую

Наталья Белоусова

“Я, конечно, знаю, что на меропроятие, которое проводит Ольга, пойти стоит, но этот тренинг превзошел все мои ожидания. Очень много информации для размышления, ресурсов, приемов. Новый взгляд на хорошо знакомые техники. Замечательный блог, который стал для меня радостным открытием. Что касается организации, все, что делает Ольга отличается душевностью и высоким качеством. Оля, спасибо, и буду ждать следующие мероприятия. (А если Лео приедет еще, заранее бронирую билет)
