Fostering learner autonomy: helping students become more independent

Should we pre-teach vocabulary in listening and reading classes? How do we answer a question such as "Teacher, how do you say interessado in English?" Should we teach grammar more deductively or help students get to the meaning of target language themselves? In short, do we perhaps help students a bit too much in class? Do we teach learners to learn? These - and more - questions will be addressed in this webinar. Join us!

Transitioning from language to bilingual teaching

Are you a language teacher? Are you interested in becoming a bilingual teacher? Bilingualism has been incorporated in private education in Brazil and it is a great challenge for teachers to adapt their teaching styles to this recent reality. This talk aims at discussing the transition from language teaching to teaching different subjects at bilingual schools with a more modern approach. The speaker will also talk about her own experience in this transition and give suggestions on how to overcome possible difficulties.

She graduated in Biology and she holds a Masters and a Doctorate degree. She has also got language certificates, such as CAE and CPE, as well as teaching certificates, such as TKT and TKT CLIL. She loves working as a teacher and she is especially fond of working with young learners.
