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.

Come enjoy, and find out how to engage and motivate all students.
