Podcast Possibilities: Enhancing Language Skills in the Classroom

Laura Wilkes

Podcasts continue to rise in popularity with forecasts for global listenership exceeding 500 million for 2024.

In this workshop, podcaster and teacher trainer, Laura Wilkes, shares how we can use podcasts as a teaching resource with our teenage and young adult English language students. Laura will share practical examples of how freely accessible podcast content, such as The Goalkeepers Podcast Series by ELi Publishing, can be used to develop learners' language skills as well as their creativity.

Hello! How are you? What do you do in your free time?

Jane Cadwallader

We all teach children to read, listen, ask and answer and write about their own and other people’s lives; their preferences, hobbies and daily routines ... And we revisit and extend this area throughout all the stages of learning. Reading and learning about how others live also fits in with wider learning and SDG 16 (promoting peaceful and inclusive societies) as children see the connections between us and others, the challenges we share and the challenges which are different. This webinar will look at practical examples -from the Real Lives Graded readers collection by Eli Publishing - of how to integrate and use readers which are set in a different time / culture as a jumping off point for work on vocabulary and language to do with describing lives and also for understanding and respecting others.

Jane Cadwallader has taught English to children of all ages for over 30 years. She lives and works mainly in Spain but also spends many months of the year working for an NGO in Uganda. She has given talks to teachers in many parts of the world and has co-authored courses for Primary EFL. Her great love is writing readers and she has been doing this for ELI for over 10 years. She works in partnership with the wonderful Argentinian artist, Gustavo Mazali and together they have written over 40 readers and won a number of nominations and awards in the Young Learner category of the Extensive Reading Foundation.
