Developing Confident Communicators for the Real World | Webinar
- National Geographic Learning Webinar | Teens and Teaching Adults -
The primary goal of many English language students is to be able to communicate in English in the real world. They need to be effective communicators in their professional, academic and social lives. However, even learners with an intermediate or advanced level of English can sometimes struggle to get their message across in public – not because they don’t have the English they need, but because they lack inward and outward confidence. In this webinar, we’ll begin by exploring what communication is and then we’ll consider the ways in which you can boost your learner's inward and outward confidence so they become confident communicators. The session will include plenty of practical advice and classroom activities, including extracts taken from the new fourth edition of World Link.
