Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only.

Communication must be regular and responsive to partners.
Technology tools need to be tested and trialed first before students become frustrated – in this summit it was made clear teachers had set up the technology and supported student use throughout

Student-centred, inquiry-based learning is key to successful sharing and the better understanding of global partners here.

EnglishCentral makes teaching English fun and effective by turning popular web videos into
powerful language learning experiences. EnglishCentral allows teachers to sign up students,
select video curriculum, assign goals and track student progress. Perfect for any blended learning
approach and the 21st-century digital classroom.
Active learning helps students start speaking English confidently in less than a year.
Active learning is more than just listening: it involves the active participation of pupils. They must use the language all the time and be emotionally involved in the process.
We need the conversion from Passive Learning to Active Training English Skills
As a language teacher, I use all kinds of tricks just because making students speak and building their self-confidence in keeping the conversation going is the most essential for me.
