    Abstract
       

    Before you can improve your learning/study habits, your teamworking habits or your approach to sitting exams, you have to identify the strengths and weaknesses in your current habits. Improvement begins with self-awareness and awareness of other people’s working, learning, teamworking and studying styles. Having an understanding of different habits and styles and how these both complement and clash can boost confidence, increase motivation and lead to improved performance in exams.

    The purpose of this seminar is to enable participants to articulate at a higher level why they work and study the way they do and also identify skills and strengths they would like to improve. In addition, it prompts participants to consider the way in which their styles impact upon team and classmates.

    You will broaden your understanding of different study, learning and teamworking styles; learn how to teach the concept to teenagers and go away with tips on how to motivate those preparing for the Cambridge exams
    .

    Abstract
       

    Our students’ performance in speaking and writing often belies a much broader range of vocabulary and a much better understanding of grammar than they actually demonstrate. Put simply, they often know more than they show. At intermediate levels in particular, when the tendency of many learners is to rely on more familiar language, one of the challenges for any teacher is to help students say better what they can already say more basically. How, then, do we encourage students at B1 and B2 levels to express themselves as fully as possible? How do we get them to speak and write with more variety, more nuance, more cohesion and, importantly, less grammatical and lexical repetition? This seminar will look at activities that can help students hone their productive skills, with a focus on paraphrasing, organising stretches of speech and text, varying usage of grammar and vocabulary, and distinguishing and employing different registers..
