NATESOL Teachers’ Seminar: Film In The ESOL Classroom

Designed to link Cornerhouse’s ESOL programme with NATESOL, these seminars provide the perfect platform for ESOL teachers to meet colleagues and develop their teaching practice.

Using film can be a great way of engaging ESOL learners and is an effective tool for developing language and introducing students to cultural topics. The focus of these seminars will be on using film in the classroom. A selection of speakers including Rachel Hayward, Engagement Manager at Cornerhouse and ESOL teachers Cormac Conway and Michaela Salmon will present a series of informal talks designed to show teachers how to get the most out of English-language films for ESOL students.

Both seminars will follow the same itinerary – just book onto the most convenient time for you.
