About the webinar

In many English language classrooms, grammar is taught explicitly. The teacher gives a rule and then the learners practice this rule. While this may be effective, grammar can also be taught indirectly.

This webinar looks at how grammar can be introduced in a more engaging and student-centred way, focusing on clear contexts and personalised, communicative practice. It also introduces a range of techniques and activities aimed at enhancing grammar proficiency from beginner to advanced levels. Join us to discover how to empower your learners to achieve linguistic competence and communicative fluency.
