I had the pleasure of attending Charles’ session on using realia in the classroom. Realia can be a scary concept for teachers, but this session helped us consider it as not just lugging a bagful of fruit to our lessons, but as a way to increase our students’ autonomy using materials which relate to their lives. We also looked at some authentic letters and Charles gave us loads of good ideas for how we can use them to create practical and fun lessons which don’t require hours of planning. Highly recommended!
