Teacher Training for Lower Secondary/Primo Grado teachers of English
Good listening skills are vital – students who find listening difficult usually have problems with pronunciation and speaking, too. In this session we'll look briefly at what is happening when students try to listen to English. Next we will look at ways we can help students to improve their listening skills, in terms of both interactive as well as independent listening. We’ll work with listening activities taken from course books, and with activities where no course book is needed, just a speaker and a group of happy listeners.
