  • 42. Shaun’s 5 tips:
    Teach the language students need for picture (prepositions, tenses)
    When using coursebook material encourage students to give a personal view and / or relate it to something Czech.
    Encourage pairwork - it gets students used to turn taking, making eye contact, showing interest, etc
    Don’t over correct – remember most exams are not about being 100% accurate, conveying the message is what counts.
    Spend a few minutes each lesson on speaking - even if it’s the not main aim of the lesson as I have shown, it’s easy to add speaking to any lesson.
