What if the English language classroom and the experience it affords can make a real difference to our learners’ lives, so that not only are they developing their English language skills, but also being supported in their personal growth and development through the process of learning English?

Through an experiential learning approach, teachers are presented with a dual-purpose approached based on positive psychology scientifically supported tools and techniques that foster SEL. Linguistically, while lessons appear simple and unassuming on the surface, they have the ability to deeply and meaningfully engage both you and your learners, providing a connected, rich and personalised language learning and teaching experience.

During these 3 half-day sessions teachers will:

  • Understand the impact of SEL today
  • Personally try out and experience proposed tools and techniques
  • Implement ready-made lesson plans with their learners
  • Reflect and report on the teaching and learning process
