Do you teach an exam class? It’s not that easy, is it? Even though students are all preparing for the same exam, they aren’t at the same level. Even though there is a clear goal, they aren’t all equally motivated. Even though they are in an exam class, they also want to learn to use their English in situations beyond the confines of the classroom. In this time of COVID with the shift to online and remote schooling, teaching and learning have become even more challenging. This webinar explores the challenges of preparing students for exams, techniques to embrace the current and offers strategies and tools to help cater for them all. Techniques which provide focussed exam preparation will also be identified as well as activities which not only equip students to be successful in exams, but also allow students to learn and practise real world English (and finally understand the lyrics of their favourite song).
