Goal The Phase 1 programme is to broaden the professional perspective of the primary and secondary school English teachers in Macao, and to provide them with English teaching techniques and strategies, as well as a range of activities for use in their own classes. (The participants of Phase 1, who wish to enhance their English language skills through an immersion experience and to gain insights into creative and innovative English language teaching methodologies and teaching techniques, may submit applications for Phase 2 after completing Phase 1.)
Message The workshops are practical, relevant and fun, and the participating teachers will: - engage in and learn how to use a range of fun, motivating classroom activities suitable for use with primary and/or secondary students in Macau schools - develop their own English language skills Workshop 1: Creative Dictations This workshop will offer a new look at a traditional language learning activity – dictations. Dictations are suitable for a wide range of levels and ages and can provide excellent practice in listening, grammar, spelling, punctuation and pronunciation. In this workshop participants will experience and analyse a variety of engaging techniques to extend traditional activities used with dictation. They will take part in dictations which utilise the personal experiences, attitudes and opinions of both the teachers and the students, such as picture dictations, time dictations, cheating dictations, text reconstructions and cooperative dictations. Workshop 2: Speaking Skills: Role Plays and Building Dialogues Simulations and role plays give students the opportunity to rehearse real-life conversations and build confidence in spoken English. This workshop will focus on creative ways of using role plays and simulations for practising English. Participants will also experience practical techniques for building short dialogues with students, and ways they can practise the dialogues with their classmates.
