Online: Conversation and Speaking

Conversation and Speaking

This is a 3-hour workshop aimed at teachers who work with conversation lessons and those who would like to develop speaking as a skill. If you have ever heard a student say ‘teacher, I want to be more fluent’ this course is for you.

We are going to cover topics such as:

  • How are traditional conversation lessons and speaking skills lessons different?
  • What are speaking subskills and how can we develop them?
  • What can we do to actually help students sound more fluent?
  • Can we develop speaking skills at low levels?

We are going to bridge theory and practice and give you practical ideas to help your students become better speakers.

When? Sunday, September 13th, 2020

Time? From 9.00 to 12.00

Where? Online. This workshop will be delivered via Zoom.
