AMC Online | Teacher2Teacher Series: Oral Error Correction
The American Center in Moscow invites English teachers to join the fourth meeting of Teacher2Teacher Series, facilitated by English Language Fellow Brian Cook, on March 22 at 6:00-7:00 PM MSK.
The topic of the fourth session on March 22 is «Oral Error Correction». In the foreign language classroom, errors are a natural and expected part of language learning. A number of studies suggest that error correction can be a useful tool to assist language acquisition. At the same time, oral error correction can interrupt communicative activities and can cause a negative reaction from students to being corrected in front of the whole class. How do you balance students learning correct grammar and pronunciation, while at the same time encouraging them to develop confidence to use and experiment with the language? We will explore these questions in this session of the series.
Teacher2Teacher Series for English-language teachers has been hosted virtually at the American Center in Moscow throughout the past year. These biweekly meetings are a great opportunity for English teachers to get hands-on advice about various aspects of foreign language instruction, share successful practices, resources, innovative pedagogies, and work on their professional development together with like-minded colleagues.
The participants who attend 5 out of 7 Teacher2Teacher Series sessions will earn an e-certificate from the Regional English Language Office. The sessions are hosted biweekly from February 8, 2022 through May 4, 2022.
These workshops are free and take place online via Zoom. They are intended for English-language instructors teaching in various educational contexts, as well as teacher-trainers and students pursuing a degree in TESOL.
