In this workshop we will look at what functional language is and what you need to know about teaching functional language. We will also look at some tips to help avoid the pitfalls in teaching it.

This will be followed by a Q&A session to clarify any points you may be unsure of and discuss your own experience of teaching functional language.

We hope you can share how you deal with some of the challenges there may be. We will also share what issues (if any) NNS (non-native speaking) teachers may feel there are around teaching functions and look at ways of getting around them.

Presented by Marie Pettigrew – Teacher Trainer, CELTA Trainer & Assessor, EFL & CELTA Consultant

Preparing for the Workshop

Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.

At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you. 

Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.

You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum. 

The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world. 

After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries
