A note from Catherine Walter
“It teaches reading and listening from the bottom up as well exploring conventional top-down strategies, and it works on more fluent reading and listening. This gives the learners the means to understand the next text they will read or hear, not just the one they are reading or hearing now.”— Catherine Walter, Series Adviser
Advanced learners often feel that they’ve ‘been there, done that, bought the t-shirt.’ The temptation is to keep trying to teach them something completely new, even if it isn’t really very useful, when what they probably really need is to further develop and deepen what they already know, or to gain a fresh perspective. In this webinar Navigate author Rachel Roberts looked at ways we can support our Advanced learners using material from Navigate.
In this repeat webinar session Heather Buchanan, co-author of Navigate, shared ideas for encouraging learner autonomy inside and outside the classroom, including flexible activities to increase relevance and ways to improve our learners’ language by exploiting the English speaking world around us.
In this repeat webinar session, Caroline Krantz looked at how we choose the words to teach in order to ensure learners get the words they need to maximise their progress in English, and to comunicate effectively in the world today.
