Exploiting authentic videos in Business English classes 
by Valquiria Fazzi



This workshop aims at exploring ways to exploit authentic videos. The materials will refer to Business English contexts, but the approaches to be described are relevant to EFL in general. This talk will help participants to devise tailor-made activities to suit learners’ needs and skills while providing the rationale underlying them. Several examples from the presenter´s own practice will be offered, as well as suggestions for pre, during and after-viewing tasks which contribute to creating an environment where learners feel they are “tapping” into the “real thing.”

Principles of Teaching Young Learners: Planning for Learning

 APRIR and Pearson ELT Argentina take pleasure in inviting you to the presentation:

Principles of Teaching Young Learners: Planning for Learning
By Leonor Corradi, M.Ed.



On Saturday 29th April
from 8.30 am to 12.30 pm
At Centro Educativo Latinoamericano –Av. Pellegrini 1352 – Rosario

Read Leonor Corradi's Biodata


Abstract: Planning is inherent to language teaching. We plan units, lessons, activities and projects, to mention but a few. In our zest to find creative activities and cater for our students’ needs, we run the risk of overlooking some crucial principles in education and ELT. How can we ensure that our planning does justice to the latest research and to the underlying principles in the curriculum? How can we plan having valued student outcomes in mind? This presentation aims at reflecting on these questions so that participants can find their own paths to their young students’ learning. 


This activity is free of charge but online registration is essential

Descripción: 

Esta propuesta se centra en la lectura del "Ulises" de James Joyce, su análisis y discusión. Es abierto a la comunidad y está dirigido a toda persona interesada en la literatura y dispuesta a introducirse en la apasionada lectura de una de las obras más importantes del siglo XX. 

El objetivo es crear un grupo donde el análisis sea colectivo y la lectura sea experimentada por placer (y goce) sin perder la seriedad que el abordaje de la obra merece. Consistirá en dos encuentros por mes de una hora y media y está dividido en dos etapas, la primera, de abril a junio, la segunda de agosto a noviembre. Tendrá un máximo de 15 participantes.

En cada encuentro se discutirá uno o dos capítulos que los participantes deberán leer con anterioridad. Se sugerirá bibliografía y guías de lecturas en casos pertinentes. Se trabajaran además conceptos literarios y lingüísticos que se consideren relevantes para la apreciación de la obra. Por el carácter de la obra, se alienta su lectura en el idioma que el participante prefiera (inglés o español), ya que esto contribuye a la riqueza de su análisis, aunque los encuentros se desarrollarán en español. 


“Texto de placer: el que contenta, colma de euforia; proviene de la cultura, no rompe con ella y está ligado a una práctica confortable de la lectura. Texto de goce: el que pone en estado de pérdida, desacomoda (tal vez incluso hasta una forma de aburrimiento), hace vacilar los fundamentos históricos, culturales, psicológicos del lector, la congruencia de sus gustos, de sus valores y de sus recuerdos, pone en crisis su relación con el lenguaje.

Aquel que mantiene los dos textos en su campo y en su mano las riendas del placer y del goce es un sujeto anacrónico, pues participa al mismo tiempo y contradictoriamente en el hedonismo profundo de toda cultura (que penetra en él apaciblemente bajo la forma de un arte de vivir del que forman parte los libros antiguos) y en la destrucción de esa cultura: goza simultáneamente de la consistencia de su yo (es su placer) y de la búsqueda de su pérdida (es su goce). Es un sujeto dos veces escindido, dos veces perverso.” (Roland Barthes, El placer del texto y lección inaugural)

Abstracts

Something real, something meaningful: Authenticity of materials and purpose with teenage learners

More often than not, teenagers complain that the textbook or other resources are artificial, dumb, or unreal when compared to everyday language-mediated practices. In this workshop, we will discuss, explore, and design activities which are based on authentic sources of input and purpose. Our explorations will follow Richard Pinner’s (2016) conceptualisation of authenticity as a continuum. 


Lemme hear ya: Authentic listening

Listening is vital for foreign language learning, and yet, we don’t seem to focus so much on it didactically speaking. In this workshop, we will revisit different notions of authenticity and discuss how they relate to authentic listening for English language learning. We will explore authentic listening through activities which can help learners develop strategies for understanding.

CLIL-ing the Classroom: 
a little guide to making little revolutions in every lesson 
by  Alastair Grant



When?: Saturday 4th March -  9.30 am to 12.00 pm
Where? Asociación Católica San Patricio –Salta 2643 – Rosario

Abstract

Content Language and Integrated Learning has long been heralded as THE way to teach; but to many of us, the method is either shrouded in mystery or else simply not practical enough to use in the classroom when you have a syllabus to get through. Until now, that is.
In this session, we will explore simple activities to CLIL your classes, allowing students to use their English as a means of communication rather than just another subject to be studied, whilst still working in harmony with the structural syllabuses that we all have to follow.
