English Language Fellow Alaise Rudder, located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, led 32 English language teachers from the state of Kedah in a workshop on developing differentiated speaking activities that teach grammar, content, and vocabulary. The program was organized by the Lincoln Corner of Kedah to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The focus of the workshop was to empower teachers to reach students in multi-level classrooms with engaging and adjustable activities. These teachers learned strategies for designing listening and speaking activities for the particular needs of their students. Teacher feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and one participant commented that it was “an eye-opener to new activities for speaking and listening lessons.”
