Welcome to the first #KELTChat preview of the new semester. It feels like it’s been a long time since I wrote one of these, so I hope I can remember how to do it. “Practical ideas for teaching speaking” was the poll-winning topic. I’m not sure how much explanation this really needs, but if we’re on the practical side then you might like to share the following:
- Tasks (if you’re into that kind of thing)
- Activities (if you’re not)
- Seating arrangements
- Skills (conversational ones? pragmatic ones?)
- How to motivate students to speak
- Teaching techniques
- Anything else
The chat takes place on Twitter from 9pm on Tuesday 10th September. Just run a search for #keltchat, and add the same hashtag to your own tweets in order to contribute. If you need any help, please send me a tweet or ask on the Facebook group.
See you on Twitter!
