ELT Techniques by Gabriel Díaz Maggioli

Workshop Old Hat, New Cap!

In this two-hour workshop we will revisit some tried and tested ELT techniques (such as the Cloze procedure) and we will work together to turn them into communicative activities.

Come prepared to take risks, think outside the box and, more importantly, have fun as we improve our teaching together.
