One of the many challenges teachers face, specifically in Asia, is the large number of non-native English speakers in their classrooms. This workshop will provide teachers with techniques they can use to engage non-native speakers and promote language building opportunities in mainstream classrooms. Following some statistics on local students in international schools, several techniques will be demonstrated. Audience members will also get a chance to utilize some of the techniques on their own as well. Additionally, participants will learn to use an observation tool that analyzes language use in the classroom.
