AGE GROUPSyoung learners, teens



In my hands-on session, I will focus on building lessons around the topics that our students are familiar with. I will show the importance of working with course materials that revolve around t(w)eenagers' daily life and interests.

I'll also provide you with a bunch of activities that help create links between the lesson content and real-life experience, boost students' enthusiasm for learning and tackle the challenge of mixed-ability classes.
