1830 - 2030 | British Council, 10 Spring Gardens, SW1A 2BN
New year event:
The theme of this interactive seminar is common human characteristics and how teachers can work
with them rather than fight against them. The world over we find people who are inquisitive but easily
distracted, competitive yet lacking in self-control, needing to be part of a group whilst also needing to
show individuality. The presenter will look at human traits such as these in terms of learners – how
they affect learning and classroom behaviour. Participate in the online poll before the seminar to vote
for which human traits will be examined in the session.
Johanna Stirling is a freelance ELT consultant and NILE Associate Trainer. She writes for CUP and
has self-published the award-winning Teaching Spelling to English Language Learners. But what she
loves most is working with humans - whether learners, teachers or colleagues. The English
Language Garden at www.elgweb.net tells you more.
Who is this for?
All English Language teachers - EFL, ESOL, EAL - from newly qualified to experienced.
