This session covers a few preparation strategies for EGE speaking. The participants will explore the following:
- The difference between testing and teaching speaking;
- Useful speaking strategies for EGE;
- Activities helping students develop speaking sub-skills useful for EGE;
- Ways of exploring EGE speaking materials to save time in class and cater for various EGE modules in one lesson.
The workshop also demonstrates ways of integrating oral reflection diaries, self-assessment rubrics and other procedures aimed at helping students become independent learners. The self-assessment tools explored in the session will also reduce the teacher's marking time and shift this burden on the students.
The goal is for participants to walk away with concrete ideas for their own classes.
