    Rob Howard: Coaching and Neurolanguage in English Language Teaching

    Rob Howard: Coaching and Neurolanguage in English Language Teaching

    What’s the difference between teaching and coaching? What can we learn from neuroscience and learning to apply to our own teaching? Is it just another methodology gimmick, the latest bandwagon to jump on? Or is there some core sense in this area to add to our English language teacher toolbox?

    I spoke with well-known Business English language and communications specialist Rob Howard about the 4th International Neurolanguage Learning and Coaching conference taking place in London later in April 2020.

    Image Conference: Reflections on the Conference from Participants

    Image Conference: Reflections on the Conference from Participants

    The Image Conference is an exciting, personable gathering for language teachers with a particular interest in multimodality and visual literacy. Each year, over two days we engage with each other and learn together.

    This year (2018) the conference was held in Athens with a strand of the conference being run by the GISIG (Global Issues Special Interest Group). It focused on the migrant and refugee crisis in Greece and around the world. We considered what this meant for us as language teachers and multidisciplinary specialists involved in education. How are we responding? How does this inform our practice?

    If you are interested in what applied linguistics and language teaching looks like out there when it meets global issues and other disciplines, be brave! Come join us in Brussels in October 2019.

    "Tico-Tico no Fubá" performed by the great Paco de Lucia -a little "aflamencado" for the purists, but a great version never-the-less.
