Title of the Talk.




The Power of Emotional Engagement in teaching teenagers.



For many years the standard beliefs 
about successful language learning have been that the main challenges,
particularly those of memory, are cognitive ones. However, recent findings
in cognitive sciences clearly indicate that the brain is ‘an organ of emotion’.

In this session, Herbert will look at the key role of emotional
engagement in the learning process of teenagers and discuss a number of
practical implications for the classroom.

Professor of English at the Teacher Training University in Graz, Austria.
He has been a plenary speaker at numerous international conferences and has conducted workshops and given seminars in more than 50 countries. He was also President of IATEFL (the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language). For almost three decades, Herbert has done research into the practical application of findings from cognitive psychology and brain research to the teaching of English as a foreign language. Herbert has co-authored numerous course books as well as articles and resource books.
His latest resource books are Teaching Young Learners to Think, Grammar
Songs and Raps, and Get on Stage! His latest course books are English in
