    Hi Everyone!

    I would love others’ input on this: I’ve been asked to teach a couple classes (about six hours total) to the teacher trainees at the center where I work, with the goal of “developing their linguistic competence.” For better or worse, I pretty much have free reign as far as the activities and topics covered, and I find myself slightly overwhelmed at the plethora of options to choose from.

    Here are the results of my first quick brainstorm (geared toward advanced students):
    – listening to/discussing news stories or lectures (NPR, TED, etc.)
    – practicing inference from pictures/stories
    – collocations exercise
    – some kind of activity to practice inference

    I would really appreciate any suggestions that you have to offer! Thanks in advance!

    It’s a very nebulous topic. I would try to clarify what they want you to do first.
