Diversity in the classroom is unavoidable and often beneficial, but when it comes to exam preparation classes, students need bespoke learning solutions. In order for mixed-ability students sitting in one classroom at the same time to flourish and achieve exam success in their respective exams, teachers need to develop ways of delivering the right level of challenge to individual students regardless of level.

This online workshop aims to help teachers do just that. Learn from an experienced teacher, who will present tools, provide tips and offer classroom management strategies which have helped him prepare mixed-ability classes for Cambridge English exams over the years.

Why attend?

  • You will get information about (and chances to use) a range of online tools for teaching and testing, websites which enhance learning and Cambridge English examination preparation material.
  • You will also get tips on how to store, organise and deliver these resources to make your and your students’ time in the classroom more enjoyable.
  • Importantly, you will get the chance to ask questions and compare and share some of your own experiences and ideas with peers in a friendly and supportive forum.
