About this event

Effective development of speaking skills requires a number of carefully planned stages, including learning from a model, analysing which elements make up the conversation or dialogue, and then working on subskills to equip learners to speak at length with accuracy and fluency. This workshop is for anyone who wants to know more about what to expect in the CertTESOL course or who would like to brush up on teaching skills.

You will also get the chance to get some first-hand experience with the ways that input sessions are delivered on the CertTESOL course, meet a course tutor and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the course.

For the best experience, attendees should have:

  • a computer or ipad style device (a phone will also work)
  • stable internet access
  • a headset with microphone
  • a webcam
