Event Description

Focus on Reading: we will be exploring how to develop your learners' reading skills from A2-B2 that are applicable for the Cambridge Examinations. Exploring ways we can develop reading skills whilst at the same time supporting and developing key transferable skills required to perform effectively for the exam. In addition to intensive reading strategies, we will also explore ways we can support reading through encouraging our learners to read extensively outside the classroom.

Focus on Listening: after focusing on Reading, the afternoon session explores the other receptive skill, listening. What makes listening difficult and how can we support learners develop key listening skills so they can perform effectively in the exam? In order to answer these questions, we will be exploring the different listening tasks from A2-B2, and propose practical applications that aim to develop key transferrable skills to support learners in preparing for the exam.
