CEFR in the Classroom: Receptive Skills
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.
