BritLit: Authentic Stories in the Classroom

Exposing learners to authentic texts in English is motivating. It encourages independent acquisition and learner autonomy. BritLit is a British Council project whose aim is to help teachers from around the world to exploit English literature in the ELT classroom. You can find a range of materials based around the works of various authors. BritLit resource packs contain complete texts, tasks for students, teachers’ notes, as well as audio recordings of interviews with the authors and readings from the texts. This session will explore how teachers can use BritLit to motivate their students to read authentic English at any level.12:00-13:30Hands-on materials’ session
