Students spend an average of 7 hours per day stuck inside of a classroom learning a lot of things they probably won't use in their daily live. Even in language classes, although language teachers are ahead of the curve, students will still spend a lot of time at their desks filling in workbooks. In this session we will take a look at how you can adapt your coursebook material into engaging and real life activities that take place outside of your classroom.


Rianne has been a teacher for two and a half years now. She teaches English and history at a secondary school in the Netherlands. Her main interests lie in increasing student motivation and helping students develop active language skills. Rianne studied in Belgium and has a bachelor degree in Education, her own blog and is a BELTA Board member.
