This workshop presents different ideas for helping Language teachers to set up routines for the Language classroom where learning can be effective and enjoyable. The workshop will focus on the need for Language teachers to develop strategies which assist students in learning and remembering language by the use of routines, repackaging language and revision.

The workshop will include ready to use activities and templates that are easily established and effective in language learning but will also assist the teacher in classroom management and create a dynamic and engaging environment of learning. These strategies will provide a scaffold for meaningful and effective language learning.

The workshop is open to all languages as activities demonstrated will be discussed and workshopped so that teachers come away from the session with a real collection of ideas that they can use immediately back in the classroom.

Teachers will also reflect on the dynamics of their own classroom teaching and how these routines, repackaging and revision of language will facilitate their own teaching.
