Seminar Title / ناونیشانی بابەت / عنوان الندوة :
Preparing Gen Z for the Real World
Abstract / پوختە / الملخص :
While most secondary school graduates have studied English for years in the classroom setting, they are unconfident due to lack of practice and this is a gigantic barrier to communicating in English. As English language educators, we believe it is vital that our students are equipped with the tools for success in the ‘real world’ and that our role is to facilitate students’ communication on their path to fluency. In this plenary, we will reflect on how we offer students communication opportunities and then look at how we as teachers can boost learners’ confidence to becoming global communicators in the 21st century by focusing on providing authentic language opportunities daily.
