A short introduction about Cambridge exams
Prepare to Learn, Prepare for Exams
Are you teaching teenage students who need to learn general English to prepare for real life and as well also perhaps prepare for Cambridge English exams? We’ll be looking at how Cambridge English Prepare flexibly achieves both these goals by its lexical-grammatical approach which uses research from English Profile and the Cambridge Learner Corpus while also giving teachers control over their students’ gradual exposure to exam preparation. Whether preparing for real-life with cross-curricular and culture units or for real exam practice with Cambridge English Testbank and ‘Prepare to’ sections for the productive skills of speaking and writing, Prepare prepares.
Target audience: lower-secondary school teachers, grammar school teachers
16:15 – 17:45
Empowering you and your learners—and your school!
We’ll be looking at activities from Cambridge English Empower, the new course for adults and young adults, which ensures learner engagement, personal response, real-world communication and manageable learning by combining engaging classroom material with reliable assessment validated by Cambridge English Language Assessment to empower both teachers and learners—and schools. Empower includes both informal, formative and formal, summative assessment as well as Learning Oriented Assessment (LOA) through online individualized Personalised Practice Pathways via a Learning Management System (LMS) to help teachers motivate and guide their learners and schools to record learners’ progress on the different language skills at CEFR levels
Target audience: grammar school teachers, language school teachers to adults
17:45 - 18:00
