New Fifty-Fifty: They Speak; They Listen… And They Like It!
Steve Golden
Hyun Am International/Pearson Education
 

Most of us have been there -- full of motivating ideas and materials and faced with a speaking or conversation class full of students who just don't want to talk…at least in English.  Many of us have found a remedy… the Fifty-Fifty series!

Fifty-Fifty is designed for large classes of EFL students where "student talking" time is very limited and the level of learners is fairly low. Fifty-Fifty allows students to participate actively in meaningful exchanges through pair and group work activities.

During this presentation, we will alternate between talking as teachers and actually performing the tasks set out for learners in Fifty-Fifty… try and discuss, try and discuss.  Don't expect to sit comfortably and snooze, Fifty-Fifty means action; some quiet, some noisy, some silly, some serious… but all centered around students, NOT teachers!
