SKA Bratislava: Creative Cafe

November 20, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


You’re invited to an evening of fun, creativity and fellowship over a cup of coffee and or tea among a group of friendly English teachers.

In this session, we are going to play:

Drama Games with Hon Chong
Here’s a wonderful chance for ESL teachers to get together in a safe and supportive environment to try out some drama games and exercises and explore different ways to facilitate them to all age groups and skill levels.

We will play a few games that are fun and require minimal preparation. We will also work on facilitation techniques to ensure that you get the most out of each and every game!

This is perfect for any teacher looking for new game and exercise inspiration or wishing to try using drama games to spice up their lessons.
Duration: 60min

And after we are going to discuss:

Taming Our Monkeys
The Poles have an idiom that English has recently borrowed: ‘not my circus, not my monkeys’. It means it’s not my problem and I don’t have to deal with it. Unfortunately, in our teaching, we do have problems. Sometimes our classrooms look like a circus and our problems feel like monkeys jumping on our aching backs.

Every other month, SKA Bratislava plans to get together and discuss the ELT problems we’re dealing with in our classrooms. We hope that together we can come up with some effective solutions for each other and help each other become better teachers for our students.
Come join us and let’s tame some monkeys!
Duration: 60min

I like Hon’s lessons because they are not boring. We usually practise by playing the games. It makes us to be active.

Jana Jarošová - ČSOB Asset Management

I did not expect some evident improvement in my English, as I use it on daily basis some years already. Today I see my pronunciation is really getting better.

Bronislava Caránková - Commercial Assistant, Krauthammer Slovakia

I appreciate teacher’s approach in a seeking the most optimal approach and form that new knowledge is provided by.

Vladimír Baksa - Advertising Department Manager, Allianz Slovensko

I value teacher’s individual approach to the needs of the group

Otto Nagy - Security Technician, Slovenská Sporiteľna

For a time of about a year, my English has visibly improved and my self-confidence has gone higher in situations when I have to speak English.
