Steve Taylore-Knowles - Lifeskills and Mind Online

Online

Who is it for?

Join teachers around the world to watch live talks from some of the biggest names in English language teaching.

Description

In today's highly-competitive labour market, it's more important than ever that the skills we provide our students with prepare them for the challenges ahead. Not only do we need to take them to the right level of achievement in English, we also need to activate their English in specific ways to prepare them for their current and future social, professional and academic lives.

In this webinar, Steve looks at how the Mind series, and the digital component Mind Online in particular, work with lifeskills to do just that.
