Описание: Unlocking self-expression through NLP, part of the Professional Perspectives series, offers you 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 programs 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 relationship 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.
Описание: Talking Business in Class provides teachers with a wealth of activities and suggestions for student-centred conversation classes. It is designed for use with students who: need conversation as part of an ESP course, want to talk about their occupations and work-related issues, want general conversation practice to supplement their professional conversation skills.Professionals learning English want to talk. They need to be able to talk about various aspects of their jobs and vocational backgrounds. Perhaps they also have to socialise with other non¬-native speakers of English. They therefore need a free stage in their language classes when genuine communication, as opposed to formal coursebook-style practice, begins to take place. Talking Business in Class provides the material for this free stage. The speaking activities in the book set up informal yet focused exchanges between students, bridging the gap between the classroom and the outside world with topics which are real, relevant and appealing to students' interests. There are more than 50 stimulating activities in the book, divided into the following sections: The World of Work Me and My Job Bridging the Gap, The Business of Thinking Presentations.
