unlocking
Unlocking Self-expression through NLP
Unlocking self-expression through NLP offers over a hundred activities that create the need and the desire in the students to express themselves, be it in speech or in writing.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is the study of human experience, focusing on mind-body connection, on language as a mirror of the inner being and on the fact that much of our experience is mediated by powerful internal programmes we are not normally aware of.
This book starts from the perspective of NLP and provides teachers with well over a hundred activities, designed to create the wish and need in students to express themselves in English, both in speech and in writing. Talking about newly-felt, newly-apprehended sensations and ideas through English gradually changes the learner’s relationship to the language:
  • A real desire to talk and write
  • An improved realtionship with the target language
  • A growing sense of ownership of the target language
  • A growth in psychological awareness
  • A more accurate awareness of classmates and a growth of respect for them
The activities are divided up into sections that go from Warmers to Exam Preparation, from Vocabulary work to Integrated Skills practice, through strategies such as Introspection, Questionnaires, Roleplay and Storytelling.

mother
Using the Mother Tongue
Using the Mother Tongue offers a variety of practical ways to make use of what is a very valuable resource by:
  • providing ideas and guidelines on when and how to use the mother tongue
  • encouraging teachers to use the mother tongue selectively and effectively
  • raising awareness of the similarities and differences between languages
  • building links between the mother tongue and the foreign language through comparison and translation
The use of the mother tongue in the foreign language classroom has often been officially discouraged; however, many teachers have recognised that in practice using one’s own language to learn a foreign language is natural, necessary and efficient.

challenging
Challenging Children
Challenging Children recognises that teaching young learners is as rewarding as it is challenging. Young learners demand special attention and stimulation if they are to learn effectively. Lessons need to be planned and delivered in such a way that pupils hardly notice that they are learning a new language.
The main aim of Challenging Children is to:
  • activivate their linguistic abilities
  • generate vocabulary
  • arouse their interest in the learning process
Challenging Children offers a series of activities for pupils from five to twelve years, divided into three levels of difficulties.
The activities are easily adaptable. They need little or no preparation and the instructions are concise and clear. They can be used with or without a coursebook; as warmers, fillers or your main lesson.

spontaneous
Spontaneous Speaking
Spontaneous Speaking gives teachers a wide variety of drama activities, all of which have been designed to maximise student interaction. A range of different, true-to-life situations are used, to create meaningful communication, increase fluency and build up students’ confidence.
In Spontaneous Speaking:
  • Students have no option but to speak and listen to each other. Written prompts such as rolecards are not used, so the students’ focus is always 100% on each other.
  • The activities provide frameworks but creative content always come from the students. They generate a lot of energy, fun and laughter, as recently-learnt language is put into practice.
  • Clear aims and some suggested variations minimise the teacher’s input and maximise students’ output.
