Aims, contents and method of the course

Creativity stimulates and motivates. It helps to analyse things in diverse and uncommon ways. Creativity is something that should be integrated into everyday classroom practice. Creative activities encourage learners to take risks, engage more deeply with the language and exceed their current language abilities
This course is aimed at introducing creative activities and techniques that are adaptable to a variety of learners and teaching situations. The participants will acquire a wide range of creative and engaging activities that are designed to complement language learning by encouraging the English language student with a real desire to read, listen, speak and write actively and creatively. The course is interactive, enabling participants to be fully immersed in the subject matter and to design lessons and materials that are motivating, challenging and effective. The practical application of methods can be experienced within the seminar and will be supported by in-depth discussion group work.
