How can you help your students to develop fluency and confidence when speaking in English? What makes a good speaking task?
In this practical webinar, you’ll experience and evaluate a range of engaging speaking and listening tasks that can be used face-to-face or online, and with large classes. Claire Ross, the speaker hopes that by the end of the webinar, you’ll have some new, easy-to-prepare speaking tasks to try with your students, along with activities to get them really listening to each other. She’ll also share links of where to find more activities to add to your repertoire.
