Barcelona Conference – ’SpeakApps: Tools and Tasks’

The members of the SpeakApps Consortium are offering a free half-day conference called SpeakApps: Tools and Tasks on 13 December from 10:00 to 14:00 at the Institut d’Estudis Catalans in Barcelona to mark the end of the second phase of the project’s European funding as well as to spread the word about the SpeakApps tools in Barcelona.

Joan-Tomàs Pujolà of the Department of Language and Literature Education at the University of Barcelona and Usoa Sol of the Escola Sant Gregori will begin the conference by giving presentations on the design of oral tasks. Then SpeakApps project members and users will provide a brief introduction to the SpeakApps tools, which are designed to promote the teaching and learning of oral skills. This will be followed by short workshops in which participants can use the tools themselves, and consider task design for oral production and speaking interaction activities. The morning will end with refreshments and an opportunity for networking. See the complete programme for more details.

The event is free and open to anyone involved in language education, though registration is required. Certificates of attendance will be provided to participants who request them. To register, please fill out our online registration form.

We sincerely hope to see you on 13 December!
