Planning ELF-aware lesson plans

Watch a recording of this webinar with Priscila Bordon looking at awareness of English as a Lingua Franca and how to incorporate it into your classes.

About the webinar

In this webinar, participants will be able to understand the concept of ELF awareness and apply it within their context when preparing their lessons by offering practical tips and ideas on how to tackle issues such as accent, identity and nativeness in a light way in your classroom. ELF-awareness is a new lens in which we can include more perspectives in English Language Teaching, especially in the Global South.
