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? Sue Kay believes this can be achieved by setting up speaking activities carefully.
In this webinar, Sue suggests six ways to ensure that students are motivated to speak and are given the support they need to succeed. She illustrates these suggestions with examples from Focus Second Edition.
This webinar is designed to help you feel more confident teaching using flipped learning. We look at how to flip your classroom for the first time with tips on what to tell your students and/or their parents. We also look at how to plan for a few different lesson shapes: from vocabulary lessons to lessons that include video and social media posts. Finally, we discuss student motivation and how we can support all of our learners all of the time.
In this session the PTE Academic training team looks at how English language testing has evolved and the gradual move from pen and paper-based testing to the use of technology and automated scoring. They focus on finding connections between tests and how teachers can adapt their teaching practices for students preparing for PTE Academic.
How ready are your students for their exams? This session introduces you to two new English proficiency products that are accessible to candidates 24/7.

In this webinar you take part in a STEAM investigation about the techniques that confident STEAM teachers possess.
We look at the role of the teacher, the impact of questioning techniques and other skills and instructional strategies that will help you carry out STEAM experiences in your language classroom successfully. Self-reflection and sample STEAM projects are used to highlight these ideas and, hopefully, build your own confidence!
In this session we provide an overview of the General English course Roadmap and how it is suited for online classes. We start by briefly summarising the research that influenced the design of the course, before looking at the twin track approach to teaching speaking and the other skills, and how to teach those online. We also show how it provides a great degree of flexibility to help you navigate the different needs of your learners and teaching environment.
With the pandemic continuing to limit face-to-face interactions, many of our adult (and new graduate) students will be facing the already stressful interview process online. Interviewing via video conference or submitting a video of themselves as part of the process has already become the new norm. This is daunting for the best of us and potentially doubly-worrying for non-native English speakers.
This session provides practical tips and strategies to support teachers in helping students overcome interview anxiety and better prepare for online job interviews in English.
Research shows that reading for pleasure can promote better health and wellbeing. What can we do to get our students reading? How can we help them develop literacy and reading skills so that they can enjoy books and become life-long readers? In this webinar we provide practical ideas and activities using Graded Readers to empower students in their learning and to engage with reading inside and outside the classroom.
