Universal Speaking Boosters for Exams and Beyond

When teaching speaking we often struggle to make students sound natural, fluent and confident. Interestingly, this is actual when we teach both exam preparation and general English classes of all levels. Gaining confidence in speaking often seems an unachievable dream for some students, which, in its turn, poses threat against their fragile motivation.

This session is going to look at how to help students sound natural from the very beginning of their lessons. Additionally, you’ll find that IELTS speaking tips will be so actual for your general English lessons as they really help to boost students’ confidence and fluency. Some answer templates will be in hand for you to apply when working with adults or teenagers, who have tight deadlines and need to improve their speaking skills urgently and intensively.


Finally, some stress reduction techniques will allow students to experience the sense of achievement in their learning process rather than stress and fear of making mistakes.

By the tool of the English language, through Speaking and Writing work, we are called to invite our learners to explore what we all wish we had been taught at school (but never were):

- discovering our life purpose;

- creating a fulfilling life experience.

Using dictations in a classroom

Dictations are very often dismissed in ESL classrooms. Many think it’s a teacher-centered boring activity that neither students not their teacher enjoy. Some might also get terrible flashback from their school time.

This session is designed to prove that dictations deserve a second chance and can come in handy at various lesson staged. It’s a practical workshop where we will take a look at different kinds of dictations and discuss how they to adapt and use them with all ages and levels.
