Video review of week 3

We’ve come to the end of the third week of the course and, 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 24 April.

Preparing learners for their English language assessments

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.

This week, here are two example lesson plans to help you prepare learners for their Cambridge exams in an online classroom:
