This presentation will offer teachers of post-secondary as well as secondary education strategies on how to motivate their students in the classroom. Many students are taking a language simply to fulfill a requirement and lack interest in the subject. Their lack of motivation can have a negative impact on their language acquisition. The presentation will include ways to support students in their discovery of language and will focus on ways to make language relatable regardless of their career goals, relying on teaching language for specific purposes (LSP). Teachers will leave with a tool box of techniques to make language more interesting and contextualized for their students.
