Bringing Contemporary English into the Classroom
ПРАКТИЧЕСКИЙ ТРЕНИНГ ДЛЯ ПРЕПОДАВАТЕЛЕЙ
Today, the English Language and aspects of its grammar and vocabulary is changing and evolving at an unprecedented rate. This day of interactive and practical workshops will look at various aspects of contemporary English, including recent and ongoing changes in grammar, recently coined new words and phrases and the repurposing of existing words. We will also take a look at how the internet and social media is shaping and re-shaping online-speak. Underlying all this, there will be a focus throughout on how aware we and our learners need to be of contemporary English and how we can incorporate aspects of this into our teaching. The workshops will also give you the
opportunity to update your own English and develop your language awareness.

ПРОГРАММА
11:00–12:10 Grammar changes
This session looks at some recent and not so recent changes in grammar and explores the useful and convenient notion of non-standard grammar. Along the way, we'll also look at some grammar patterns that have been around for a long time, yet which are seen by some as contemporary usage or even going against the 'rules'. We'll relate all this to the traditional ELT syllabus and approaches and explore together the implications of this for our teaching and material design.
12:10–12:40 Break between sessions
Вreak between sessions, the opportunity to communicate with colleagues, visit the exhibits
12:40–13:50 New words and vocabulary 1
We will (based on words recently added to various well-known dictionaries) take a look at where
new words and phrases come from and at why some endure while others are more transient and
fleeting. We'll also consider how new language and new uses of existing language reflects the
changing world we live in, including a brief look at how gender and other 'political' issues are
shaping language. Along the way, we'll consider how we can introduce such language into the
classroom.
13:50–14:50 Вreak between sessions

14:50–16:00 Online-speak
This session looks at how the internet and in particular social media is influencing and changing the English we use. Drawing on and analysing typical social media exchanges, we'll explore some of the key features of online-speak and along the way will explore how some of these can be seen in and have evolved from language usages from over the last hundred years or so. We'll take a look at ideas for lessons and classroom activities based on online language and online semiotic features.
16:00–16:20 Вreak between sessions

16:20–17:30 New words and vocabulary 2
This session looks at some further examples of contemporary language usage, including the
seemingly unstoppable trend for portmanteau-ing and verbing. We'll again look at ideas for how we
as teachers and in this case the students themselves can bring the language into the classroom.
