Problems EFL Teachers face
EFL Teachers face a multitude of problems and challenges. Is there any way to avoid
them? Not likely. Is there any way to prepare for them? Absolutely!
Our panel of experts will discuss the following most common EFL problems and suggest
ways to deal with them.
Students speak more in their native language than English.
One student in particular dominates the lesson.
Students are too dependent.
Students are bored or unmotivated.
Students arrive late or disrupt the class.
Students don’t do homework.
Students take control of the lesson.
Students don’t talk enough. They just sit there and say nothing.

Young Stars, the ideal Coursebook for young learners
Teachers often spend a lot of time creating their own materials in order to meet specific
instructional needs not covered in the coursebook they are using, or to make their lessons
more exciting and appealing to students. What would a coursebook be like if it actually
incorporated all these creative ideas and materials (hands-on activities, interactive whiteboard material, etc.) ?

“Problems? What problems?” Tips, Tricks and Traps in Managing Foreign Language Classes of Adult Learners
Speakers: George Dimitriadis, Lecturer
Thomas Mantzaris, Lecturer
Vicky Papachristou, Lecturer
Paschalia Patsala, Head of Department
It usually takes foreign language tutors years to educate themselves as ‘teachers,’ and
only a few minutes upon entering a class to realise that they now need to become
successful ‘managers’! Foreign language teachers are constantly faced with a dilemma
about their profile as managers. Does classroom management merely involve ‘taming’
their audience via strict regulations, penalties, and delimiting tasks in order to ensure
the smooth and unobstructed lesson delivery, or does it entail ‘engaging’ them in a truly
innovative, thought-provoking and appealing manner? And how feasible or realistic is
that, given that each class has its own distinctive mixture of educational, ethnic, and
cultural backgrounds?
During this presentation, a number of realistic classroom scenarios will be presented
and discussed, focusing mainly -although not exclusively- on foreign language classes
comprising of young adult learners. Drawing from specific practices which have been
implemented with significant results in the English Language Support Unit of the International Faculty of the University of Sheffield, the presenters will suggest and exemplify
a wide range of strategies and initiatives through which foreign language teachers can
gain and maintain absolute control of their audience, as well as maximize the latter’s
active engagement and performance.
In response to the increasingly growing need for efficient and professional classroom
management, the main topics to be addressed in this presentation are how to:
stimulate learners’ motivation and academic engagement,
gain and maintain control of lesson flow,
cultivate the autonomous learner’s profile,
encourage and increase in-class interaction,
ensure a balance between student and teacher talking time,
improve students’ time management skills,
utilize classroom arrangements,
enhance learners’ objectives and performance,
as well as communicate clearly your academic and behavioural expectations.
