Charles has been working in the ELT field for over ten years, teaching ESL, speaking at various ELT conferences around the Czech Republic and writing and delivering teacher training in several countries around the world. Throughout his teaching career, Charles has been fortunate to teach all levels, both young learners and adults. However, over the last few of years, his focus has been drawn more towards teaching young learners, both general English for Primary ages, and B2 and C1 exam preparation classes for secondary students.

Using Flashcards and Visual Aids to Better Support Learners
In a Primary Lesson, flashcards are one of the most valuable resources that we can use in the classroom. Indeed visual aids can both enhance and maximize learning across the spectrum. In this interactive workshop, we will explore various techniques and activities to teach both vocabulary and grammar through visual aids to maximize what our students learn in the classroom.
Motivating Students to Write
Writing is a subject that few enjoy teaching and even fewer enjoy learning. Usually this disdain for writing is deeply rooted in the students' general lack of understanding of how to effectively write academically and a lack of motivation for writing. In this workshop, we will look at various techniques we can use in our classes to help motivate our students to become better academic writers through activities to teach writing fundamentals.
