From hieroglyphics to text messaging – what's the point of Writing?
This 30-minute presentation will attempt to trace the changes that have occurred both in the form as well as in the function of writing as an activity which has accompanied the evolution of man from prehistoric times to the present.
During the presentation we will also try to answer the question of whether contemporary forms of written communication (e.g. SMS messages) have an impact on the enrichment or rather impoverishment of communication.
Successful B1 Writing in the classroom (workshop)
During this 90-minute training we will present a set of practical language activities, suitable for teaching students how to compose emails, stories or other written forms on B1 level.
The training will also provide an opportunity for a detailed examination of four key criteria necessary for evaluation of written work, i.e. Communicative Achievement, Content, Organization and Language.
Both sessions will be conducted in English by the Cambridge English experts.
