Many teachers lack the confidence to provide their learners with sufficient controlled oral practice in the classroom. This workshop introduces you to different drilling techniques for use with every level.

Whether you are working through a skills lesson, or encouraging learners to use new vocabulary or grammar, drilling can be integrated into every lesson! In this session you will be shown different methods to support students as they work towards more meaningful speaking practice.

We look at how and why you can provide useful pronunciation practice in class: from individual or tricky sounds, through to functional phrases and lexical chunks and then working all the way up to full phrases. The session shows teachers applying these practical techniques via Zoom classes, but all the ideas can be used in face-to-face teaching environments too. Done properly, drilling is intense but enjoyable, and having the knowledge and assurance to utilise two or three different techniques will keep your learners focused and motivated throughout.
