English Teacher Development Program
📌 Liven-up your Speaking Lessons (11.00-12.30).

“I want to SPEAK English” is often the only our students’ idea when they come to us, English teachers. And yet, we often forget that having provided out students with grammar and vocabulary we still need to help them systematize this knowledge in order to be able to use it effectively when speaking.
As usual, along with the clear understanding of how the communicative approach works in teaching speaking, you will have practical ideas and ready-to-take-away speaking activities favoured by LIK teachers which you can further develop.
