An opportunity for Chinese language teachers to explore new ideas and connect with peers.

Integrating skills in Chinese language teaching

This one-day workshop is a follow up to our Spring 2013 sessions that will explore techniques for integrating skills work, managing mixed abilities and student expectations, and the sequencing of a good lesson plan. Teachers who have trained with us before will gain new insights, and those who haven’t will be exposed to a range of new ideas.

Join Dede Wilson, a teacher trainer with many years’ experience working with native teachers in China and around the world, to explore ways to make your teaching more effective, and lessons more enjoyable.

Dede will be supported in Leeds and Manchester by Yan Mei Wu of Manchester Metropolitan University who will demonstrate how to integrate pronunciation work into lesson plans.

Get ready to see how your language classes can really come alive!
