Short Session Description:
Using magic tricks in the EFL classroom with young learners will make them want to speak and let them learn a lot more.
Full Session Description:
What can children actually do if they can perform a magic trick? What do they learn when learning how to perform it?
They learn how deception and manipulation work, which means learning critical thinking. They have to speak, practice empathy, problem solving, teamwork, self discipline, perseverance, autonomy, even a bit of digital literacy. They are engaged, enjoy themselves a lot, they have an immense feeling of achievement, and their self-confidence soars when they do the magic trick outside the classroom. I will show you how it works in our EFL lessons.
