L1 and L2: the key differences in how we learn English and why it is important to use appropriate materials with each type of learner

    • Many schools think that following an L1 English syllabus and using L1 English teaching materials is the best option for all learners of English whatever their background. Many parents, principals and teachers believe that ‘second language’ means ‘second class’ and that using ‘second language’ materials is in some way detrimental to students and will hold them back in their studies. In this webinar we’ll be looking at how L2 learners learn English in a different way to L1 learners and will consider what this means for our choice of teaching materials.
