Making all the right noises: developing speaking skills
What does it mean to be a good speaker of English? What skills will our students need to become proficient speakers of English, thriving in exams and in the wider world? In this session we'll examine how students' speaking ability is assessed in external exams and try out a range of fun, original activities that develop the skills they need to succeed at speaking.
Let’s have some fun: the games extravaganza
Effective learning is linked to positive emotional experiences. Much of the best learning takes place when pupils don’t realize they are ‘working’. Both co-operation and competition can be effective. These are just some of the reasons why games have long been a must in the young learner classroom. In this session we will consider the characteristics of effective games and propose (and try!) some of the best games to use with young learners, from tried and tested favourites to newer offerings.
