Getting our students engaged in speaking English in our classes can be challenging. With the reality of having to prepare them for an English exam, speaking is an area many teachers teach, but rarely are speaking skills taught.

In this interactive workshop, we will focus on identifying various speaking skills needed across the levels B1-C2 and looking at some classroom activities in order to prepare our students to take a Cambridge English Exam.
