Engage and Motivate the Reluctant Language Learner

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What makes learners disconnect? Experience and practice three key language approaches for all levels, all languages, that motivate and reconnect disaffected students to you, their classmates, and language-learning. Practical information on why adolescents disengage from language-learning is paired with specific activities to overcome reluctance. Thorough handout provided. Friends and colleagues, this session will engage YOU, give you new pathways and practical and specific ways to bring hope right into the middle of your classroom instruction. You will in turn see and experience how to bring that hope and energy to your students. What I share and what you will experience has really transformed lives and classrooms. Come enjoy, and find out how to engage and motivate all students.
