Transference of knowledge is a goal that, as educators, we envision as the ultimate stop for our learners. Many questions arise in connection to this thesis, amongst them: what can we do to support our learners to apply all the knowledge they have and display their communicative ability in an efficient and effective way? The aim of this session is to discuss a series of simple, practical, and usable thinking routines that can be taken to the classroom, and that will be helpful for students to continue to develop their communicative competence in English.
