Event Description
Attending skills training, as developed initially by psychologists about 70 years ago, in essence, teaches learners (or counselors) to be good listeners while keeping a conversation going. This version of the training, for teachers of nonnative speakers, provides the skills and classroom procedures for (a) creating groups of three or four students, who (b) carry on an engaging, short conversation, and then (c) review that conversation with their instructor, exploring the strategies used and key pragmatic features of the interaction and the story, itself. The system can be done either face to face or online with students. Each session includes small breakout rooms and (modest) homework assignment, and optional reading list.
This is a paid event. $100 for members and $150 for non-members.
