Join us at IP on Sunday 28th August 2022!
In this session we will talk about the active teaching of skills. The teaching of skills is the backbone of balanced communicative teaching. It adds meaningfulness to language learning and makes language teaching realistic. Sadly, learners face challenges when trying to cope with the production of language and the decoding of written or audio texts. They are also demotivated by repeated negative results from tests on skills. How can teachers cater for individual needs and how can the weaknesses of individual students be spotted? This session aims to discuss how inclusive practices can be employed to reskill students. The two speakers will focus on different aspects of the topic: Ms Polychrou will focus on how Educational Drama can be used in the development of skills, while Ms Sachpazian will discuss the honing of receptive skills.
Maria Polychrou is a Member of the Executive Board of TESOL MTH, Northern Greece and the owner of English Drama Microschool. She is also a Teacher Trainer and Oral Examiner
Ms Maria-Araxi Sachpazian is the Chair TESOL MTH, Northern Greece and a Lecturer CITY College, the University of York Europe Campus, She is the owner of Input on Education and a member on the Membership Committee of IATEFL.

Surviving A minute before the exams
Under the auspices of the Virtual International Publishers’ Exhibition
Sessions start 15:00
15:00 Opening to the TESOL MTH Strand of Events by M.A.Sachpazian
Session Title: A ‘minute’ of meaningful impact: the road to exams
How can one define ‘a
minute’ before the exams? How much time do we need to prepare students and have
a meaningful impact on their learning and path to exams? This
presentation/discussion will try to delve deeper into the time framework on the
road to exams.
Mr Apostolis Koumarinos, Founder of The Speakers, Public Speaking Champion
Session Title: Boost your students’ communication skills
In every environment, impactful communication plays a significant role. During our webinar a different way of approaching communication will be introduced. How we can boost others so they can vividly express themselves and be heard in both personal and professional level.
17:10-18:00 Let us RESTART ourselves
Presented by TESOL Macedonia-Thrace, Northern Greece Executive Members
Ms. Antigoni Melidonioti, EFL Teacher/Oral Examiner, Teacher Trainer and School Owner
Session Title: The Hungry Caterpillar goes digital.
Is it possible for Baby Boomers and Generation X to keep up with the Millenians or is it a cause? Are educational apps and webtools an invaluable asset of nuisance to revolutionize and transform learning? A passing fad or reality? Can the hungry caterpillar go digital and transform learning apart from ourselves? To what extent?
Maria Polychrou, EFL Teacher / Oral Examiner / Adult Educator and Teacher Trainer
Session Title: Reinventing ourselves through Educational Drama
Is it important to reinvent ourselves as educators to reinvent our classes? Which path of exploration should we follow with our students so as to go beyond standard approaches? How can we lead our classes from the personal to the critical? Educational Drama is the key to critical reflection, reinvention and social change. Reinvent Yourselves and Become Spect-Actors!
Ms. Tanya Livarda, EFL Teacher & Teacher Trainer / Oral Examiner
Session Title: Hey Teacher, where is your magic wand?
Summary: Are we magic weavers? Do we do magic every day? Do we have invisible magical powers? What are our magic spell and magic word? In other words, how can we cope with being teachers, facilitators, mentors, leaders and coaches at the same time? And how are all these connected to our darkest friend: the burnout? Don’t forget to bring your magic wand and your magic spell with you!
We hope to see you all there!
