Lisa Victoria BROOMHEAD

Lisa began her career many years ago in a comprehensive middle school in the UK, teaching Social Studies. From there, she went to the Isle of Man (find that on a map!), teaching History and Geography at GCSE and A-level. Developing a taste for adventure, the next post was in an international school in Singapore with responsibilities for teaching History and Anthropology at IB level as well as English-language teaching (EFL). It was in 1997 that she finally settled in Turkey.

The following years have been spent in Turkey as a teacher and Head of Department in private education and as a freelance teacher trainer. She is a published author, both nationally and internationally, including the Starter level of a Primary English series and an intensive ESL CLIL series. Living in Antalya, and working as an author and Academic Consultant, she is settled for the forseeable future.

The problem with the Present – Practice – Production method of language teaching is that it is grammar based and encourages an unnatural overused production of the target language. In a task-based approach to learning, the language evolves in a natural way, providing a relevant, meaningful context for students to use all their language resources rather than just the target structure. In this workshop, we will look at the key stages of TBL, using examples, to illustrate the value of giving students the independence to experiment with language in an enjoyable and motivating learning environment.
