Teacher, teacher-trainer and writer Hugh Dellar visited UCLan on Wednesday, 25 February to give a talk and workshop to TESOL staff and students.
Titled ‘Teaching Lexically’, Hugh, who has over 20 years of experience in the field, challenged the misconception that grammar is the most important aspect of teaching English and instead proposed his own lexical approach.
With numerous examples of how to and how not to approach teaching English in the classroom, teachers and students left the workshop more informed and encouraged to consider using Hugh’s lexical approach in their future lessons.
Hugh was also able to answer questions from students and has continued to discuss some of the points raised on his Facebook page.
He co-founded his Lexical Lab website with Andrew Walkley.
