Supplementing your coursebook intelligently with C1 learners

  • Session C

Presenter(s): Carol Waites

Overusing a coursebook can hold learners’ progress back.  At this level, they need to become autonomous. How can we achieve this? My students need to improve their level and prepare for an official exam. The textbook can help with exam techniques. But to pass the exam they need to prove they can work independently in English. They need to deal with grammar analytically and efficiently, and master authentic listening and reading materials.  Students must play a central role in the process. The talk will present concrete examples of how to help students achieve these goals.
