Title: Engaging parents in their children’s language learning
Date: Wednesday 23 September 2015
Time: 10.00 – 11.00 UK time
This webinar is aimed at teachers and parents and explores how parents can engage in their children’s English language learning, so that it becomes a team effort that involves the teacher, young learners and their parents. It includes a focus on the Cambridge English Young Learners tests and gives practical resources and ideas for ways that parents can help their children.
