Teach with Dave Masterclass – Session 3 – Learning for life
The keys to preparing teens for life in and outside the classroom.
16th June, 4 p.m. Bucharest time
In this session we will look at how to prepare teenage students for life in the 21st Century.
We will look at how and why we should teach Life Skills, Thinking Skills, and Social and Emotional Learning.
The ultimate aim of teaching these various skills is to help teenagers to cope with the pressures of life at school and university and also to succeed and blossom in life beyond the classroom.

‘The great thing about teaching English to teenagers is that English is in itself an incredibly useful Life Skill for them, something that can help them in their studies at school or university, offer them more and better career prospects, and also enrich and expand their leisure options.’Dave Spencer, 2021
