Jon Hird - Extended Speaking in the Classroom (and the Importance of Planning)

This practical webinar considers the importance of pre-task planning in classroom speaking activities and looks at research evidence of how this can result in significantly increased fluency, complexity and grammatical accuracy. We will look at how a planning stage can be integrated into a speaking activity and along the way we will listen to and briefly assess a student undertaking a classroom speaking task. The session will be illustrated with material from Language Hub.
