This webinar is aimed at teachers who are preparing candidates, or are going to prepare candidates, for the Cambridge English: Key for Schools exam.
Participants will gain a greater understanding of how they can use the Language specifications and Vocabulary list in the Handbook for Teachers to inform their teaching and to make their learners more aware of how functional language is used.
The webinar will focus on classroom practice and on providing teachers with ideas and activities that they can apply in their own settings to improve learners’ preparation for the exam.
