ESOL beyond the classroom: Support your students’ independent learning

To help learners make the most of living in an English speaking environment we need to think about how to develop purposeful, realistic, and engaging activities beyond the classroom, to support confidence and progression. This is particularly important in the current circumstances when learners may not be attending classes or accessing learning.

Our Beyond the Classroom webinar explores different strategies to support independent learning for your ESOL learners. The session looks at ways of developing independent activities across reading, writing, speaking and listening. The focus is on Entry level learners, but the approaches will apply to all learners.
