POSTPONED September Workshop - Why should we use Games and Songs in the EFL Classroom?

Edit and Update

Due to scheduling conflicts with Cambridge Day, we have decided to postpone Bharati's presentation.  Instead, we encourage all of you to attend Cambridge Day (Information and Pre-Registration)

3-5 pm Saturday September 15, 2012

Room 105 Injaeguan Center, Sookmyung Women's University


Learning a new language is hard work, especially learning the English language. A teacher is happy when they see their students smiling, laughing and enjoying the class while they learn.  It is said that students enjoy coming to class, when they can learn in a creative way, using games and songs in the classroom is a great way to reinforce the lesson and help motivate the students.  If you teach mainly elementary, middle school, or even high school students, then this workshop may be for you.  In this workshop, I will introduce you to some game ideas that can be used at the end or beginning of your lesson.  I will also show you some songs you can use and how you can teach them.

Bharati Belmore, has been teaching in the ESL field for just over 5 years now.  She has taught in Korea and in Canada in both public and private schools.   She has worked with elementary, middle school and adult students. Bharati has now recently started a job at a private elementary school in Nowon, in north Seoul. She teaches Science, Debate, and Language Arts to high level students in Grades 4 and 6. Her educational background includes a BA in Economics and Math, as well as a TESOL Certification. In her spare time, she enjoys running, reading, knitting, and traveling.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Mr. Cavitt. It helps more than you know. At the last meeting, we decided to postpone Bharati's presentation since Cambridge Day was scheduled for the same day.

    I'll correct that in the posting and I'll put up some information on how to get there (probably Cambridge's site).
