Creativity in the Languages Classroom

This course will be online:-

  • Crista is presenting via webcam, accompanied by slides and activities
  • Opportunities for delegate questions and comments
  • A copy of the slides will be made available after the course, along with further materials.

According to Steve Jobs; ‘Creativity is just connecting things’ . Creativity is instrumental in developing oracy, translation, grammar, tongue twisters and dramatic performance as well as curiosity, confidence, and competence in the drive for excellence in the languages classroom, and of course beyond.

This webinar demonstrates how creativity can be woven in to language lessons and schemes of learning to create meaningful, memorable and very powerful learning which lasts.
