Intersection 1: Soft Skills for the Modern Learner

Soft skills, like using teacher talk, implementing practices that lower learners’ affective filter, setting compassionate boundaries, encouraging students to listen to understand instead of respond, are just as important as technology, clear, measurable objectives, and well-developed lesson plan. In this intersection, experts will highlight the most needed soft skills for today's modern learner.


Intersection 2: Spotlight on Learner Engagement

In this intersection, you will hear about learners that inspire others, promote innovation, and are already changing the world. You'll see how learners engaged in not only language but the world itself.

Discover new, innovative activities that promote language acquisition and excites learners. Here our experts will share “outside the box” activities that are sure to pique your interest and get you thinking about your classroom in new ways.


Intersection 4: Tech for the Modern Learner

Technology, when aligned with the lesson objectives, can transform the language learning experience for learners. In this intersection, our community will share how different technologies—a website, app, tool, device—engaged learners and promoted efficient language acquisition.
