A workshop on developing writing skills for A1-C2 CEFR levels


Students seem to be typing constantly on their devices, practically all day and sometimes, all night long. Yet, despite all the texting, teachers complain that their learners are often too weak to express themselves eloquently and students come up with all sorts of lame excuses to avoid producing a written text. How can you help your students develop their writing skills? How can you engage demotivated learners in class with practical activities? How can technology motivate learners?

Building a culture of writing with your class may not be as challenging as it seems to be.

  • The workshop will focus on how to assist learners to develop their skills from sentence to paragraph, and finally to text level writing, through a wide range of short activities and games, integrated seamlessly into the syllabus.
  • We will also explore the potential of collaborative writing; the power of peer editing; how to exploit learning technology to motivate learners and a range of feedback techniques to empower learners.
  • There will be extensive reference to examination writing tasks and how students can be encouraged to develop their own writing skills instead of memorizing long texts.
  • The participants will be invited to design tasks and activities for their classes.
