Nurturing emotional intelligence through literature
Recently, theoretical learner-oriented strategies based on enhancing students’ emotional intelligence have been provided to educators to grant academic achievement.

This workshop will share some insights and practical ideas we have gained after working in EFL classrooms lately.
