Critical Moments Workshop

How do you get learners to use important language chunks essential in business situations such as small talk before a meeting or an unexpected visitor? Tom Smith and Stephanie Ashford of ELTAS showed us how trainers could set up short simulations based on information gaps, and harvest the language used to feed back to the participants. Apart from the quality of the presentation, there was a stimulating discussion. Congratulations to the organising team for bringing this gem to Frankfurt.

Summer fun

Ulrike and Suzanne certainly enjoyed the ELTAF Summer Party at Kuffler & Bucher after the Critical Moments workshop. Everyone agreed that the food, atmosphere and company made for an enjoyable evening undisturbed by the thunderstorm going on outside. Posted by Picasa
