English Language Fellow, Kyle Moore, conducted a workshop entitled “Designing Effective Fluency Tasks” with teachers and administrators of IBEUV Bi National Center in Vila Velha, Brazil. The primary goal of this workshop was to improve English teaching practices in the state of Espírito Santo resulting in a greater number of competent English speakers.

Fluency is an often neglected element of traditional English teaching, which can tend to focus on grammar translation. Teachers in this workshop gained new insights with regards to designing and implementing fluency tasks for their particular classroom contexts. The Fellow remarked afterwards that the teachers were very experienced, creative and engaged throughout the entire workshop.
