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.

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.

What we can control: planning, prioritising and organising skills for students and teachers.

Times of great uncertainty like these can cause a great deal of stress as so much is both unpredictable and out of our control. However, despite everything, we still need to help our students develop both their language skills, and their abilities to deal successfully with the world of work in future (whatever that may look like).

In this webinar, Rachael Roberts looks at some practical strategies that English teachers like you can use to not only get yourself more organised and in control of what you can actually control, but that can also be used in regular classroom (or online classroom) activities to help your students improve their planning, prioritising and organising skills.
