New to TEFL/TESOL, Experienced, Expert
A lot of lessons that we conduct require learners to read a text. Most of the time, this reading is used for stimulating discussions, introducing grammar or vocabulary. But does this way of using texts provide students with enough practice to acquire appropriate reading skills? In this webinar, we’re going to have a look at what reading skills our students can develop, as well as the ways of exploiting texts to conduct reading rather than language lessons. During the webinar, we will identify the characteristics of a good reader; look at the most common reading skills and strategies; learn a variety of practice reading activities to take into your class.
