  42. 42. Shaun’s 5 tips:<br />Teach the language students need for picture (prepositions, tenses)<br />When using coursebook material encourage students to give a personal view and / or relate it to something Czech.<br />Encourage pairwork - it gets students used to turn taking, making eye contact, showing interest, etc<br />Don’t over correct – remember most exams are not about being 100% accurate, conveying the message is what counts.<br />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.<br />
