Please register on Eventbrite for one or both webinars to receive links to Zoom and Unlisted YouTube stream in email confirmation.  Thanks

Steven says: I usually visit a number of groups of trainees at this time of year and do a session called ‘Authentic and Spontaneous’ which evolves each year! Of course 2020 has not been like any other year and I am missing seeing people. So I am planning two short webinars, on Tuesday 9th and Thursday 11th June, hosted by ALL.  My plan is to add to the positive feelings I hope you have about your achievements this year and about your hopes for the future.

Here is an open letter to Trainee teachers which Steven has written:

Open letter

As in his talks,  he encourages teachers, enthuses about the purpose of language teaching and engages his audience with his inimitable style.  Please do read it!

The letter is followed by the text of a  talk he gave recently at a conference on ‘How to make languages magical’.  The talk was seen as a highlight of the conference by the conference-goers!
