ABSTRACT

In this workshop we will look at 6 of the challenges that we face when teaching B2+ level students. Some of the areas we will discuss are how to address more complex grammatical structures and how to look at structures in new ways, the issues surrounding the thirst for “new language” and how to tackle phrasal verbs. There will also be some practical teaching ideas that you will be able to take away and use in your classes.
