report of presentation at the Al Ain Nord Anglia E2L Project Event, 13 December 2006
This paper, written with the less confident English teacher in mind, expands on some of the principles behind activity-based learning in the English classroom and summarises activities that can be done with young learners. It then goes on to outline ways in which new teachers and non-native speaker teachers can develop their own classroom language and interactive skills.
