It’s common knowledge that stories help us learn best but in the classroom we’re always looking for something that sparks our imagination as quickly as possible. Enter the humble TV advert! Adverts and campaigns are bold, bright and often beautiful, and we thoroughly recommend using them both face to face and in the virtual classroom!

In this session we’ll show you how we use two very different child and adult friendly adverts to teach multiple skills, systems and functions in memorable and meaningful contexts. If advertising firmly places products and messages into our minds, why shouldn’t we use them to help our students practise and internalise English too? 

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

Adverts in an EFL class

I would like to thank Gallery Teachers and our today’s presenter Erin Vickerman for an enjoyable and very useful talk and discussion about the ways adverts can be used in a language teaching class. It was important to learn so many practical tips for different age and language level groups of students.
PS I could not find the lesson’s quiz on the course site. Could anyone send me the link?

An excellent comprehensive session with very useful input and key points for discussion. Erin made it easy, accessible and enriching. Thank you ever so much for your session and your motivating enthusiasm. I have learnt a great deal from Erin and this session.
