Practical workshop where fellow teachers can learn a set of activities, designed by top teacher trainers, ready to use with their students in order to enrich their classes from a creative viewpoint. I will present innovative exercises that can turn some of the least entertaining tasks we have to do as ESL teachers into more attractive and motivating ones. The areas I have chosen are reading comprehension in the classroom, vocabulary revision, pronunciation and correction and feedback on written compositions.My aim is not only to show a series of fine activities, but also to raise awareness among my fellow EOI teachers of the need to be creative in order to motivate students and thus, try to engage them in our classes, facilitate their learning and prevent possible failure or dropout.
