Do you believe that authentic recordings are preferable to scripted recordings? 

In this practical seminar Edward de Chazal will explore the nature of academic listening, roles of the listener, and purposes of listening .

Do you actively foster a laughter rich environment in your classroom?

Emma Greenhalgh will examine the extent and function of laughter in university seminars and will discuss possible implications for EAP teaching.
