Plenary Talk: How to empower your ESP learners' employability
Ensure your students achieve a high level of communicative competence in a professional environment through the use of authentic material and development of all four language skills on real life situations. Practical approaches and techniques will be presented of how to use, expand and extend on engaging student-centred activities, use of video material and integration of technology that foster learner autonomy and self-reflection so as to increase and maintain the motivation of ESP students.
Plenary Talk: Primary Questions for Primary Learning
Why do we have 'beginning' and 'ending' the lesson sections? Why do we have such small tasks? Why are the grammar boxes so small? Why don't we translate the dialogue? We consider commonly asked questions about approaches to primary level teaching and examine the methodology behind them.

Games between teachers and students of English for any purpose
The presentation is based on the game theory and treats gamification in English language teaching as an intriguingly organized procedure of challenges, moves and pay-offs. By starting a game with the learners the teacher runs the risks of either winning or losing. The underlying dilemma is that without starting a game the teaching process is unlikely to bring the learners to a higher stage of competence.
Teachers' Research and Publication Activity
The participants will get a chance of looking critically at the research activity, the chances of getting published and how artificial intelligence can be blended with the human mind.
Turning Grammar Easy
During the workshop, the teachers will be presented a series of grammar teaching tasks for the learners of primary, secondary and senior school. The participants will come forward with the ideas of using rhymes and poems, fairy tales and stories, informative texts and testing formats for teaching English grammar with ease.

Taking students beyond IELTS: which skills should be practised to make students' transition to University smoother
In this workshop I will highlight skills that, in my view, most of foreign students are not aware of while entering the UK University. Although IELTS test does not require some of academic skills, IELTS teachers might benefit their students' further studies by introducing and practising some of the most challenging skills that will be required from students afterwards. The workshop will be based on my own experience as an IELTS student and an IELTS teacher, and some practical tips will be presented to participants.
