Lindsay Warwick - CEFR in the Classroom: Receptive Skills


Who is it for?

This event featured a webinar for ELT teachers and professionals working across a range of sectors, interested in learning more about the effectiveness of receptive skills lessons and drawing on the revised CEFR descriptors.


In this webinar, we reflected on existing receptive skills lessons and considered their effectiveness in helping learners to develop their reading and listening skills. Lindsay presented some tips for focusing less on practice and more on scaffolding skills development in a lesson.

There were useful, practical suggestions that drew on the revised CEFR descriptors for reading and listening. Lindsay demonstrated using materials from Macmillan’s academic English series Skillful, however the suggestions apply to other teaching contexts too.
