My abstracts:

Cevre Schools ELT Conference here 26th February, 2011 Istanbul – Turkey


“Guided Discovery – A Magic Technique for Getting the Best out of your Students”


The pleasure of achieving and discovering by yourself is one of the most efficient factors which reinforces learning autonomy and provides  students with great motivation and self-confidence.


In this workshop the presenter will demonstrate a guided discovery lesson; an inductive approach using the Socratic Method where all the students are engaged and guided on the path to discovering the target language at all stages of the lesson, thus providing a student centred lesson rather than a teacher centred one.

ISTEK 2nd International ELT C0nference. 2nd -3rd April, Istanbul- Turkey


What if your learning style determines your teaching style and your teaching style determines your destiny as failure or success?

It is very important to know what your own predominant learning style is, because when you teach, you may unintentionally prefer your learning style and neglect other types of learners in the classroom.


In this hands-on workshop of NLP the presenter will guide participants to identify their own predominant learning style through a test and a brief in put session on learner types; Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic (VAK). The presenter will also guide participants to explore and apply a variety of teaching techniques that enchant and reinforce language teaching addressing the needs of each type of learner.
