We’ve come to the end of the first week of the course. In this video, Lindsay and Marie Therese look back at some of the main talking points of the week. The video will appear here on Friday 12 June.
Preparing learners for their English language assessments
Visit Cambridge English Resources for Teachers for more online lesson plans to help you prepare learners for their exams: A1 Movers, A2 Flyers, A2 Key for Schools, B1 Preliminary for Schools, B2 First for Schools and C1 Advanced.
You can adapt exam preparation materials in the same way you would adapt other resources for online teaching. You can use your exam syllabus or coursebook to guide your lesson activities and supplement with online resources or learner-generated resources like images and vocabulary quizzes. Some exam preparation is better suited to independent study, for example doing a practice test, reading, or doing extended individual writing. You and your learners can use your online lessons to discuss difficult questions, share useful strategies and, for example, do collaborative work, speaking practice or group writing.
We’ll be sharing resources in the end of week review each week to help you prepare learners for their assessments. This week, here are some general tips and some resources to help you prepare learners for Cambridge A2 Key for Schools and Cambridge B1 Preliminary for Schools. You can also download them from the documents section below.
