In this session we'll provide an overview of the General English course Roadmap and how it is suited for online classes. We'll 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'll also show how it provides a great degree of flexibility to help you navigate the different needs of your learners and teaching environment.

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? I believe this can be achieved by setting up speaking activities carefully.

In this webinar, I’ll suggest six ways to ensure that students are motivated to speak and are given the support they need to succeed. I’ll illustrate 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 will provide practical tips and strategoes to support teachers in helping students overcome interview anxiety and better prepare for online job interviews in English.

Creativity is in all of us. It is that ability that raises humanity above the other living species in our world. Our own attitudes are the key to the realization of the potential within us and our students. To create a climate of creativity in your classroom, you must foster three key elements: physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. In this webinar I will show you how.
