The assertion that to be a good speaker one needs to be a good listener is commonplace but to what extent are we as successful as classroom practitioners in helping our students to develop good L2 listening skills as we are in developing their speaking skills?
With more and more ELT students in the UK preparing for exams like IELTS, the need to pass listening tests is high but do our classes really offer listening skills development or are they little more than opportunities for listening practice?
This session has as its starting point that we too often are short changing our students by testing them rather than teaching them. It then reviews what listening in an L2 actually involves before suggesting ways in which we can move away from listening rehearsal to skills development which will equip learners with strategies to enable them to listen rather than merely hear.

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
This workshop has the following session(s). When all Sessions are completed, you will be presented with a PDF certificate. Click on the link below to access the session content.

It’s my first workshop with Gallery Teachers and I am glad I attended it. I feel like it opened my eyes…
One of the best workshops
One of the best workshops so far, including the ones I attended on other platforms.
Flipping the focus
I enjoyed this workshop very much, especially because Neil has found a way to teach us by receiving our input, so if he had to redo this workshop, it would be a completely different one. Thank you!
