There are so many great online resources that you can use with students to enrich your English Language classroom, and in this series we’ll look at 4 very accessible and useful tools. You’ll learn about each one through a watch-on-demand video and in your own time do a hands-on activity you can use in your classroom. Finally, join us on 27th July 4pm-5pm for a live group seminar, where you’ll have the chance to ask questions and gather more ideas for use in the classroom. The live session will be recorded and added to the course files, and all resources will be available until 31 Decemer 2020. The tools are linked to the Areas of Study and come with step-by-step video instructions and contextualising information.
