In this session we will look at 10 areas which may be key to involving young people in their English classes including making the students’ own culture part of the content of the English class, creating space in the classroom for students to have a voice and to see the English class as more than learning English and withdrawing from making decisions on the classroom process and handing over responsibility to learners.
