Building Blocks in ELT: Langauge, Learner and Vision
Teaching is like building a house. We dream a little, we draw up the plans and we prepare the necessary materials. And then the hard work begins. The foundations we lay are set in hope and enthusiasm, but often with sweat and sometimes with frustration. However, without solid foundations, our work is a waste of time and effort and, ultimately, what we build will not last.
ELTForum.sk 2014 seeks to provide space and time for English teachers and teacher trainers to learn more about the fundamental aspects – the foundation stones, the building blocks – of our craft: the English language, the language learner and the teacher’s vision.
It is our hope that all participants, speakers and listeners, will leave with a better understanding of what it is we do as language teachers, how it can be done better, and why it’s important. It is also our hope that they will leave inspired and equipped to be better teachers. (We also plan on having FUN!)
