A Coach Approach to Teaching English as a Foreign Language



Talking about creating a Thinking Environment in Class

Conference talks in 2016 around the topic of  applying the 10 components of a Thinking Environment in my university classes:

+ In Paris, at the TESOL France colloquium.
+ In Munich, at the BESIG conference.
+ In Birmingam, at the IATEFL conference.

The Thinking Environment is a way of being in the world

Developed by coach, Nancy Kline, The Thinking Environment lends itself beautiful to the learning environment.

Demand High in ELT

Jim Schrivener and Adrian Underhil developed an approach that enables learners to show how much more they are capable of. Instead of "covering material", we focus on the potential for deep learning.



Thanks to all those who sponsored me during my Heart ELT "dryathalon" from November 5th to December 5th, 2016 and help refugee families at the Orange House Athens train & educate themselves towards an independent, self-sufficient life. We raised €455. I'll let you know how the money was used by Orange House.

 

Thank you!
