Taking off from the intermediate plateau
Many learners encounter problems when moving from Intermediate (B1) to Upper Intermediate (B2) levels of language proficiency. They struggle to perceive their language progress and often feel frustrated. This workshop will look at strategies and activities to highlight ways to help your learners take off from the Intermediate plateau.

Making all the right noises: a closer look at B2 speaking
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.
