Using TED Talks in English Language Teaching
The free TED website is a rich resource, a store of videoed talks and presentations by some of the world’s best and most engaging thinkers. This workshop will examine ways of exploiting this authentic source with different levels and class types. Activities presented will include a focus on exploiting the inspirational content, as well as on language work.
