Greg has led many training events and presented at national conferences. His work has gained widespread recognition, including the 2008 European Award for Languages. In 2011 he was the recipient of a UK German Teacher of the Year Award.

Learning to Speak, Speaking to Learn
Speaking is the epicentre of the teaching and learning of modern languages. Regular target language interaction in lessons nurtures learners who feel more confident in their general linguistic ability.
This session will offer practical classroom techniques and advice for promoting student
speaking skills. The main focus will be on developing a more natural and spontaneous kind of speaking, drawing upon the methodology of the award-winning Group Talk project.
