Get them thinking: short video for key skills
As teachers, we often hear we need to prepare our students for a rapidly changing world, one in which they’ll need transferable skills and competencies to prosper. This session will look at how short video can be used to foster the 4Cs: critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. It will provide teachers with a range of practical, adaptable activities that equip teens and adults alike with the skills they need, whilst at the same time engaging and entertaining them.
Making all the right noises: a closer look at B2 speaking skills
Most of us teachers will understand the mechanics of the B2 speaking exams we prepare our students for and have a few tricks of the trade to give our candidates the best chance for success. But what precisely is it that a candidate at this level needs to demonstrate? Let’s take a deeper look at how to gauge if students are at the right level, what they need and how we can best help them to exam success.
