Skip to 0 minutes and 9 secondsHello, everyone. Welcome to week two. This week we're going to be doing reading and listening, so developing receptive skills and we're going to be talking about how to teach them online. We're going to think about how they're different-- online to face-to-face lessons. Yep. We're going to be looking at how to share materials, recordings, and texts. We're going to think about whether we get students to read a text in a lesson online or whether we would ask them to do it before the lesson, and in which situations we might do each of those And we'll be looking at a lot of resources and materials that you can use in online lessons. So enjoy the week, everyone.

Welcome to week 2

Hello and a warm welcome to week 2. This week we’ll focus on planning and delivering effective receptive skills lessons online. We’ll talk about the similarities and differences between face-to-face reading and listening lessons and online receptive skills teaching. We’ll give you practical ideas and suggestions for tools, resources and activities which you can use to help learners to develop sub-skills and improve their abilities in reading and listening in English.

Outline of week 2

This week we’ll answer these questions:

  • What’s the same and what’s different about doing receptive skills work in online lessons?
  • What activities can you use in online receptive skills lessons?
  • What resources and tools are available to teachers and learners to use in receptive skills lessons?

This week’s tasks will take around four hours.

We’re looking forward to working with you again. Go to the next step to start this week’s activities.
