This webinar will present an overview of the test and a description of each type of task. For each task type, there will be information on how the task appears on screen and what test takers need to do, as well as strategies for how to complete tasks successfully. The webinar will introduce the Pearson English International Certificate new resources, which includes teaching activities designed to help learners prepare for each task. Bespoke activities are available for A1/A2, B1/B2 and C1/C2 learners, and the webinar with look at how to select the best activities to meet your learners’ needs and develop the skills they need to produce their best performance on the test.
With the launch of the Pearson English International Certificate computer-based test, it’s time to dive into the digital testing reality. Some people will find this easy to navigate, while others will need preparation and time to familiarize themselves and move forward. Wherever you are in your journey, join us in this first session on computer-based testing. We will go hand in hand through everything you need to know to start your journey with International Certificate.
Join Jeanne Perrett's webinar with activities & practical tips.
When we are teaching learners aged three to six, we have two main language aims: to help the children feel comfortable in an English-speaking environment and for them to understand and then use very small amounts of language. The relatively short attention span of our youngest learners and the fact that we do not usually, at this stage, introduce reading or writing can make this seem challenging.
In this webinar, using examples from My Disney Stars and Friends, we will look at how we can achieve the goals of early language acquisition and confidence by playing, singing, chanting, storytelling, listening, speaking and doing practical, focused activities in organised and flexible lessons.
We want our very young students to enjoy their first years of learning English. We want them to feel happy and confident in the classroom, and to cooperate well with each other.
In this session we focus on practical ideas and teaching tips for how we can organise and manage a class of young learners. We look at ideas for circle time, games, miming, using their books and workbooks, singing and chanting, and simple craft work.
By teaching young learners’ values we can help them develop better, find their place in society and improve their social skills.
In this practical workshop we look at how themes in the fictional worlds of Disney stories can provide a springboard to teaching key values and Global Citizenship in an engaging way in the English Language Classroom. We also look at how young learners can relate these values to their own lives. Ideas and activities to use in class will be used from the new Disney Kids Readers and My Disney Stars and Friends.
Using readers in the young learner classroom often gets put in the “nice to do if there’s time” category. However, there is compelling evidence to show that placing reading—in all its forms—at the heart of the learning experience in the primary years, can have a life-long positive impact on a child.
In this webinar, Rachel discusses the importance of building a reading habit from a young age, and showing how to use readers in the classroom with the help of the Disney Kids Readers.
In this session, we look at some key elements of successful lessons with very young learners: motivation, children working well together and simplicity. Examples come from Pearson's new pre-primary series My Disney Stars and Friends.
During this session, Ben Cook (Senior Manager Assessment Development) outlines the different task types in the test and the rationale for including them, the test development process Pearson follows to ensure test quality, and how the different tasks are scored.
This webinar explores the ways in which test takers can certify their proficiency in English while taking a digital test from the safety of home, all with the sufficient security that a certification requires. We share research from candidates around the world, and how teachers are responding to the testing-from-home options. Join us to learn how it works, and how your students can access online proctoring from anywhere, anytime.
