How to conduct self-evaluations based on real world situation;
During this workshop students will:
- Set personalized SMART goals for improving their English language and developing their skills based on their current level;

After an initial stage of rapid learning, students start to feel that the pace of their progress is slowing down, especially when they have reached the intermediate (B1) and upper-intermediate (B2) levels. Avoiding this plateau requires taking control over the learning process through continuous planning, monitoring and evaluation in a goal-oriented approach. This workshop is aimed at helping students to set SMART goals and objectives as well as to develop a feasible and appropriate plan to achieve them. It also covers different strategies for monitoring, evaluating and reviewing personal goals overtime.
