Discover with Dex: developing speaking skills in pre-primary children

Contrary to what some people may think, learning the language at the pre-primary level is not only about providing the exposure to the target language. It is not only about developing listening skills. And it is definitely not only about little kids repeating everything they hear from their teacher. Children have a lot of potential for speaking and for creative use of the language and in this session we are going to look at how the Discover with Dex series can help us achieve that.

Educating the leaders of tomorrow

More and more we are finding that students are required to be competent not just in speaking English, but also in engaging with English as confident, engaged citizens of the world. This requires not just English skills, but also literacy and citizenship education. How do we integrate literacy and global citizenship education in our classes? This webinar will explore some ideas and show activities from our newly launched course Global Stage.

How to help teenagers with their speaking – for exams and beyond?

Speaking, like any other life skill, needs time and practice to develop. However, as well know it, practice does not always make perfect. Our teenage students may be quite willing to speak, but they will not always be precise and accurate enough to do well in an exam. As current research shows, in order to develop and refine a skill, it is not enough to repeat the same tasks over and over again mindlessly (as is often the case with oral exam tasks). When engaged in a speaking task, students need our feedback, but they also need to be able to monitor themselves and reflect on what they are doing. As always, the question is how.
That’s just what I intend to deal with in this session. I’ll argue that we need a clear, well-structured, step-by-step approach, which cares both about micro- and macro-speaking skills, and which develops accuracy and fluency at the same time. This approach will be demonstrated with selected materials taken from Optimise, a major new course series for teenagers, published by Macmillan.

Effective questioning in the academic English classroom

As teachers, we regularly ask our students questions to help them to develop their academic English skills. While some students rise to the challenge of answering them, others may struggle or choose not to participate. In this webinar, we'll explore the purpose of asking questions and what effective questioning is. We'll examine practical ways to ensure we ask useful questions, provide support for students and gather as many answers as possible.
