Developing IDEAS for the bilingual classroom

This workshop will explore a framework for teaching subject areas in a bilingual classroom. Through practical examples, we will explore how the five stages of the IDEAS framework support the learning process.

After examining possible activity types for each stage in the framework, participants will choose an objective from the curriculum and devise a series of activities for a bilingual classroom, following the IDEAS framework.

She has extensive experience working with young learners and many of her publications have been for Primary schools.

Read to Succeed at Primary

Many primary EFL classrooms are buzzing with lots of fun listening and speaking activities. But, as students get older, more complicated reading texts are introduced and used as a means of testing them, but how well have we equipped our students to be good readers? This workshop shows ways of teaching literacy to young learners in fun, manageable and meaningful ways in your classroom.

Elizabeth Beer is the Director of Studies at Hyland Language Centre, Madrid. She has taught EFL for 13 years in Spain, Vietnam and Hong Kong. She is interested in all aspects of teaching, but in particular literacy, lexis and pronunciation development with adults and young learner students. She is a teacher trainer and a Cambridge Examiner.

As places are limited, we suggest you complete the online registration before the 21st of May.
