24 February 2024 session: Dyslexia in the ESOL Classroom

In this session we will be looking at what dyslexia is, how it might affect our learners and what we can do to make our classes more dyslexia friendly. 

The session will start by looking at some of the theory behind what dyslexia is and its impact on both our learners and our classes, especially in terms of foreign language learning. 

We will then look at some strategies and techniques we can incorporate into our lesson planning and teaching to help ensure our classes are suitable for all our learners. 

There will be an opportunity to try out some of these strategies and techniques as well as sharing examples from your own practice. 



About the TTT series

TTT is a series of training sessions designed to give practical ideas for teachers of all levels, both experienced and those new to ESOL.

We will look at how to maximise the use of resources across the four skills, focusing particularly on techniques that do not involve copious amounts of prep time or material. The “spirit” of these sessions is embedded in the ethos of shared experiences and each session will allow time for participant input and feedback.

Our aim is to give, remind and reinvent resources to help you in your everyday class teaching. Our motto is take away and try! Come and join us!
