Seminar for teachers: Metaphorically speaking, when is an onion a rose?

Studies show that the average native English speaker uses approximately five metaphors per minute, 300 per hour and over a 1,000 per day in a four-hour speaking day.

Without knowledge of metaphors and how to decipher and use them, non-natives miss out on layers of meaning.

Beginning with a poem by the Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy and ending with a writing exercise, this advanced workshop explores metaphors and offers strategies and exercises for teaching them to upper intermediate students.
