Activity days in language learning: Notes for teacher trainers

This booklet from 1977 accompanied a teacher training film about innovative 'activity days' at the British Council's English Language Teaching Institute in London. Activity days were designed to provide English language learners with a range of intensive, stimulating and personalised language practice tasks.

The film shows how students on one particular day selected and performed various activities. The booklet provides notes on the students featured in the film, describes how the day, the activity rooms and the activities were organised, and gives tips for introducing and using the film in teacher training.

This book is free to download below as a pdf file.
