We all know that are students are different in terms of maturity, education, interests, learning styles and we even have mixed levels within the same class. However, we tend to use the same books and the same activities with all of them. This means we are never really catering for all of them at the same time, but we may be hitting a sort of middle-ground that will make the class worthwhile for all or at least most of them. In this workshop I would like to discuss and try out practical ways and activities for catering for a variety of wants, needs and mixed levels within the same group of students with the philosophy of including and challenging all concerned.
