The webinar will share smart strategies and tips on how to bring financial literacy into classroom and cultivate wise money management and better saving habits of students to help them to be aware of financial literacy and not to be trapped in financial debts.
Unlocking the power of games: Using games to boost speaking and practice vocabulary
Sunday 16th April, 2023 – 09:00 AM (CLT)
Presented by Rose Meschi
Games provide engaging opportunities to practice a verb form, a language point, or a group of words – over and over again, in a fun and attractive way. They can trigger competition, which is a very effective motivator in EFL learning contexts. By activating students’ sense of competition, teachers can focus on practicing the target language in an indirect fun way, where the students feel they are only having fun but indirectly they are learning and using the language. Games can be used to practice the target language of daily lessons and to encourage students to use that target language and practice speaking. They can create a lively and energetic atmosphere in the classroom, get students out of their seats and break up the monotony of slow book work during classes. This webinar aims to introduce some of the most fun and competitive, yet educational games that can be used in the classroom for various skills.
