Taking care of students' emotional well-being

Students’ emotional well-being has been hugely affected by the pandemic situation and it affects how they learn English. In this workshop you’ll hear about these areas: 1) The necessity to help students manage their emotions; 2) General and linguistic benefits of developing the emotional self-regulation and well-being competence; 3) Different activities to develop it. It’ll be suitable for primary teachers.
