We will consider the different stages of the writing process and explore the use of authentic material and skills integration in face-to-face and online contexts to develop writing skills. We will look at examples from the writing papers for B2 First for Schools (and C1 Advanced) and briefly consider the assessment criteria used at these levels and their practical application.

Title: What makes learning ’21st century learning’?
Blurb: The expression ‘21st century learning’ is used more and more in language teaching, but do we really know what it means? Do students learn differently? Are the things we teach different? Are we expected to change the way we teach? We will explore these questions to understand how to turn a complex idea into everyday teaching practices.

Title: A life shaping experience — opportunities for junior language travel
Blurb: Most countries in Central and Eastern Europe are well behind their Western or Southern counterparts in discovering the opportunities language travel holds. Yet, the numbers of students taking language holidays is slowly but steadily rising. As children returning from language courses abroad spread the word, friends and their parents need expert counsel, which is what Converzum — the language travel expert provides in Hungary and regionally. This presentation will focus on English language travel opportunities for children under 18. It will look at features of packages, destination choices, what makes a programme stand out, how children benefit, and the most frequent questions parents, teachers and children tend to ask when considering booking a language holiday.
