'Teaching speaking online'
An IATEFL webinar presented by Hugh Dellar
In this webinar, we’ll be discussing what needs to happen if our students are to get better at speaking and how teachers working online can best facilitate this. To begin with, we'll be looking at the importance of a conversation-driven approach when it comes to designing online classes, and then we'll move on consider how to build predictions about possible emergent language into your planning, the crucial role that teachers modelling tasks can play, how and when to give feedback on student output, and some of the ways that we can build recycling and repetition into all of our speaking classes.
