Games Bundle

organized BY language teachers FOR language teachers

The "Games Bundle" at Conference in the Cloud is a curated set of workshops tailored for World Language teachers seeking dynamic and engaging ways to enhance their classroom experiences through games. In "Icing on the Cake" Activities with Ping Wu, participants explore language-maximizing activities designed to promote meaningful communication. "Level up! with Games" led by La Maestra Loca introduces a variety of games aimed at maintaining a 90% target language use while fostering a joyful and engaging classroom environment for all students.

La Maestra Loca also brings exciting game experiences with "Loup Garou" and " Unicornio Malo'" allowing participants to immerse themselves in these student favorites. These sessions provide hands-on experience and valuable insights into incorporating enjoyable games that aid language learning.

These workshops were presented in the Conference in the Cloud 2023. Conference in the Cloud is an incredible opportunity for language teachers from all over the world to experience acquisition-driven teaching strategies first hand through observing teachers teaching their students in their classrooms (different ages and levels of French, Spanish, Latin, and Mandarin), participating in classes as a student, and engaging in workshops to help you learn valuable strategies and teaching techniques. Zumba and yoga classes are offered throughout the day to keep you moving! Lunchtime discussions and evening social hours allow you to connect with other participants and make new friends. We hope you will join us in 2024! Learn more here.

Our presenters and instructors are all leaders in the field of acquisition-driven/ comprehensible-input based language teaching.

This is my third year in a row attending Express Fluency's conference, and I would not trade it for anything. It is worth more than the price tag. -- Anonymous (from our Padlet page)

There are always simultaneous sessions over which I am torn during in person CI conferences with many amazing presenters. And I always regret having to choose one session over the other. But this year, you ARE able to see every SINGLE SESSION on video at your own LEISURE! -- Anonymous (from our Padlet page)

The name [of the conference] is perfect, because I am on Cloud 9.-- Angie
