Skip to 0 minutes and 9 secondsHi, everyone. Welcome to week three. Welcome. This week, we're talking about speaking and writing. We are. So we're going to think about how we need to adapt speaking and writing tasks for an online context, particularly speaking activities, where, if you have a group and you want to do pair work, but you don't have breakout rooms, then what do you do? Exactly. And we're talking about group cohesion as well-- how to develop rapport amongst a group of learners online. Yeah. We're going to think about how we can help students to develop their pronunciation on online lessons. And correction, of course-- how to give feedback in speaking and writing activities. Really important. Absolutely.

Skip to 0 minutes and 43 secondsWe're going to show you some useful digital resources that you can use to create interesting speaking and writing lessons. Good luck, everyone. Have a good week.

Welcome to week 3

Hello and welcome to week 3. This week we’ll focus on planning and delivering effective productive skills lessons online. We’ll talk about the similarities and differences between face-to-face speaking and writing lessons and online speaking and writing lessons. We’ll give you practical ideas and suggestions for tools, resources and activities which you can use to help learners to develop speaking and writing sub-skills and improve students’ productive skills.

Outline of week 3

This week we’ll answer these questions:

  • What’s the same and what’s different about speaking and writing lessons online?

  • How does a group speaking lesson differ to a face-to-face lesson?

  • How can we help students to improve their pronunciation online?

  • How can teachers provide learners with feedback on spoken and written work effectively?

  • What resources and tools are available to teachers and learners to use in productive skills lessons?

This week’s tasks will take around four hours.

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