Description: What's CI? Why is it crucial for language acquisition? And how do teachers implement it in the classroom?! The webinar will begin with an introduction into Dr. Krashen's Comprehensible Input Hypothesis and contrast Comprehensible Input (CI) teaching with traditional or grammar-based language instruction. The presenter (a seasoned CI teacher, who actually is a product of CI instruction) will then describe practical ways to deliver comprehensible input to world language students, applicable to all ages. Participants will learn about techniques such as CardTalk, MovieTalk, Visual Lectures and a few input games for fun! Whether you'd like to incorporate a bit more input into your classes or you're ready to ditch the textbook altogether, this webinar will give you the tools necessary to make language acquisition happen in your classroom.
