Have you experienced either the joy of working with a harmonious and cohesive group of students or the difficulty of trying to work with a fractious and divided group? If so, this webinar is for you!
In the present day EFL classroom, where pairwork and groupwork are the norm, harmonious relationships and a positive atmosphere within the classroom have become increasingly important for the success of courses.
