Using Higher Level Language (C1/ C2): The 8th in our series of Pro-ELT Webinars for Teachers

This session, presented by Anthony Phillips, examines the process of integrating higher level language into our day to day life, and into our teaching practice – in the context of code switching. Malaysians are adept at switching codes from regional dialects, to Malaysian English, to BM. Higher level standard English is another code that can be integrated; and understanding code switching can help the process of using more C1/ C2 language, even with primary school students.  In this workshop we will look at ways that you can use C1/ C2 language every day to help your students, and to have fun.
