Do it yourself!
Adapt or develop "Speaking" teaching resources
Are you concerned about developing the speaking skill in your classroom? Do you fear coursebooks are not “doing the trick” when it comes to international assessment aligned with Common European Framework levels?
Let’s ponder on how to design our own teaching resources to develop spoken competence and how to be a critical consumer of coursebook resources so that they become a friend and not a foe.
We will be analysing common features and how to achieve this aim with reference to the following exams: 
  • Cambridge English suites 
  • IELTS       
  • TOEFL / TOEIC        
  • Trinity     
  • Anglia
