10:30 – 11:45   101 Things to Do with at Text A Competence Based Approach to Reading, Rob Dean

For many learners, reading is one of the less appealing aspects of language study, so this session will showcase ways of bringing the reading skill to life in class. We will look at ways in which we can develop the reading skill with a firm emphasis on different competences associated with reading, as well as ways of using reading as a springboard to other areas of language development. This will be a highly practical session aiming to provide a variety of ready-made activities to take away and use with any text.

12:15 – 13:30   Putting the ‘X’ Factor into Exam Preparation, Rob Dean

Few people really enjoy exams. Any motivation that is connected with exams is often extrinsic, frequently related to the pressure to succeed - and the fear of failure. But can we foster intrinsic motivation in the exam scenario? This session will look at some ways in which we might change candidates’ perceptions of exams and exam preparation for the better. We will show through a series of practical approaches, activities and materials ways in which the exam preparation process can become more engaging, enjoyable, personalised and effective – ready for positive results on the big day.
