I haven't taken part in a convention for a long long time, so when the teaching platform I work with announced that they were going to organise a web conference, I immediately jumped on the occasion and applied.
I was really happy to be accepted and I held my presentation in the beginning of the month.
So in my intro I talked about:
- why learners, especially adults are impatient
- some hints on how to motivate learners to understand and speak a bit of the language in the first lesson
- how to avoid using a medium language even from the first lesson
Some chunks of language I introduced as examples were:
Some objects and /or animals
Numbers (Finger counting)
Food (and how to order)
Since I was speaking to an international audience, I chose to use Greek as the target language and had another teacher act as a student.
It was really fun, I enjoyed it very much and I have a lot of ideas for next conventions!
