    “Across all phases speaking is the least well developed of all the skills. Students’ inability to be able to say what they want to say in a new language has a negative impact on their confidence and enthusiasm.”
    OFSTED,
    “The Changing Landscape of Languages”, July 2008

    “Group Talk” model
