Functional language provides learners with communicatively useful expressions that they can use for everyday life, therefore we believe that functional language should form an important part of any teaching syllabus.

In this workshop we will look at some examples of functional language and will discuss why it can be very effective when helping to prepare our learners for real-world communication.

We will explore the nature of functional language and look at how we can use the PPP model to teach it. We will also look at why teachers should highlight intonation and stress patterns when teaching functional language and suggest ways in which to do this in lessons.

This Workshop is included with PRO Membership.

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

This webinar can improve the English teaching methodology. Excellent topic for teaching and how to deal grammar on the students. Can be focused on communication in a realistic situation.
