This workshop introduces you to frameworks for teaching successful speaking and writing lessons.  We look at when and why students get to speak in a typical receptive skills or language lesson and therefore why it’s difficult for them to meet specific assessment criteria if doing a speaking exam.  It gives an overview of the basic writing sub-skills and how to help learners at both higher and lower levels.

The workshop also lists reasons why students find developing productive skills really challenging and offers some practical ways that the teacher can organise/plan a lesson to help.

The suggested frameworks included can work as stand-alone lessons, where the focus is solely on the specific speaking or writing skill, or as part of a longer, integrated skills class after students have worked with a text or some target language.  Finally, there are some practical ideas of successful ways to teach both speaking and writing lessons whether you’re teaching online or face-to-face in classrooms.

This Workshop is included with PRO Membership.

Preparing for the Workshop

Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.

At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you. 

Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.

You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum. 

The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world. 

After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries

I enjoyed Susie’s personality, she took this workshop to another level. It’s not just what she says, it’s the way she says it that is a real inspiration for a teacher.


Very interesting

The workshop is very interesting and I have the feeling it was longer than expected, just because people (me included) had so many questions for Susie. Very good and practical points, up to date.
Also, it’s good to understand a bit more about how is teaching English in other countries, with the input of all of the participants.
