Agenda

Six ways to get your teenage students ready to speak and give them the confidence to do it - Speaking tends to be the skill that our teenage learners find most nerve-wracking in their English lessons. So how can we give them the confidence to speak in class? I believe this can be achieved by setting up speaking activities carefully. In this webinar, I’ll suggest six ways to ensure that students are motivated to speak and are given the support they need to succeed. I’ll illustrate these suggestions with examples from Focus New Editions.
