The enigma of language and how to teach it

If all children learn their first (or home language) with relative ease - and often more than one - how come it is difficult for some second language users to do the same? Is it something to do with how we are taught, the way we learn, how our brains are wired or how we are motivated? It is of course a mixture of all these and more, but how should writers of teaching and learning materials address this? Well in the new edition of Jetstream we have tried to provide different things for different modes and stages because in the end everything depends on each individual. Our concern, therefore is to try and reach each of our learners. This talk will discuss how that is done and how it works - if it does (!) using practical examples.

Transforming Classrooms with PBL - Integrating Sustainable Development Goals for impactful learning

Project-based learning (PBL) has become yet another buzz word in language teaching recently, but what does it really mean? How can we best make use of these materials? Projects give us more than just an outcome that can be presented but rather provide us with series of skills and abilities that can be further applied in real-life. Recently, the innovative integration of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into PBL segments has added an exciting new dimension to our courses. This presents a fascinating opportunity to empower students on a global scale. In this dynamic and interactive workshop, we will explore ways these projects can be effectively orchestrated in the classroom. We'll look at ways teachers can offer insightful feedback and utilize these projects as powerful facilitative tools to amplify language learning. There will be plenty of quick-fire activities and practical takeaway tips.

Amir Hamidi is a senior teacher trainer and educational consultant at Unlimited Educational Services and marketing manager at Helbling Türkiye. He has been teaching and training EFL teachers for over 15 years and assisting schools and universities with language learning programs. For Amir, a training session is an opportunity to share his passion and inspire others.

Make Reading Matter - Support social and emotional development in young learners through stories

In this webinar, you are going to learn about using stories for multiple purposes in the young-learner classroom. Stories are the most natural way of learning for children, and becoming familiar with the amazing potential of picture books will help you harness their magical powers. We will use examples from the Helbling Young Readers and The Thinking Train series to illustrate these goals and present you activities you can try in your young learner classes. By helping our students to develop their visual and literacy skills, we give them the tools to recognise and address their emotions and relate to others in social contexts. With their social and emotional development in mind, we will look at five different classroom goals and see how stories will help you work towards them.
