What do we say and how do we say it?

This webinar helps you:

  1. Discover the many speaking frames used on your course
  2. Complete a speaking frame grid then map the speaking demands of your course
  3. Assess your learners speaking skills against the demands
  4. Decide what speaking activities to embed; knowing what to do (KWTD) is made easier by using speaking frames

Speaking frames is a fabulous way to throw light on the way we speak, why we speak, what we say exactly and how interactive listening and speaking skills are also involved.
