This was a workshop I did at the ABS International Challenge Your English Conference in 2006. The theme of the conference is to help Englaish Language teachers in South America improve their own English in order to help their students improve theirs.
In this workshop we focused on the power of metaphor and through a variety of activties the participants improved their colloquial and idomatic use of English and also their ability to use and create their own metaphoric language.
Enjoy the slides and handout available above and I’ll be back soon with some reworkings of this workshop in the form of new ideas and teaching suggestions about metaphor. And of course if you have any ideas, questions and suggestions to share, please just leave a comment.
