APRIR and ISPI "San Bartolomé" take pleasure in inviting you to the presentation: 

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.”
