  • Teaching Speaking

One of our challenges as English language teachers is to come up with a continuous supply of different motivating and interactive activities that provide our students with the maximum opportunity to communicate in real situations. The courses in this section focus on helping you with this challenge.

Using Debates to Teach English

Debating, a formal process to follow to argue a point or position, is an effective communication task to include in speaking classes in order to give students the opportunity to work on key speaking skills.

Using Drama to Teach English

Drama provides us with a wonderful selection of activities and techniques to use in the English language classroom. Drama activities are interactive, creative, and just plain fun.
