Session details:

LearnEnglish Kids: online grammar resources for young learners
Jo Hayes (British Council)

In this talk we will look at how to exploit the new digital grammar resources for 9-12 year olds on LearnEnglish Kids, the British Council’s global website for young learners. The materials include grammar games, quizzes, worksheets, tests, reference cards and animated videos. Together we will see how they can help your young learners in class and at home.

LearnEnglish Teens: online grammar resources for teenagers
Joanna Budden (British Council)

LearnEnglish Teens is the British Council’s website for teenagers. This session looks at two sections of the website which offer engaging ways of practising grammar with video and online exercises. We will also look at how teachers of teenagers can use the material in the classroom and also as homework tasks.

LearnEnglish: online grammar resources for adults
Adam Kightley (British Council Poland)

Some describe the present perfect, others highlight lexical chunks; teachers approach grammar in distinct ways. Imagine facing thousands of students every hour with different needs, approaches, levels ... the LearnEnglish website meets this challenge through variety. This presentation suggests self-access grammar pages for your students’ needs, from our lexical grammar by Dave Willis to a tense generator to contextual video presentations.
