HELTA - English is Context: Putting Language in the Context of (this century's) Roaring Twenties (with Andreas Grundtvig)
(in cooperation with DELTA / Ernst Klett Sprachen)

At the beginning of the 2020s, the circumstances in which we communicate, both at work , while studying or socially, continue to change in a way that cannot be foreseen. For many students, an ability to adapt to such change has not only become ‘normal’ but it is now expected. For teachers, beyond the constant changes in how we teach - from face to face, to restricted or virtual - the dawn of a new decade also brings a change to the context of what we teach.

In this enlightening and entertaining workshop, Andreas will take us on a linguistic journey through the last hundred years to help us make sense of how we got to where we are today. Then by reflecting on our individual circumstances as teachers, he'll load us up with a bunch of new activities that we can adapt to our own classes and enable our students to roar in the new ‘normals’ of the 2020s.

Please note that we will be welcoming in participants 15 minutes before the official start of the session to give everyone an opportunity to have a relaxed social before we start putting things in context!
