Abstract
   
Can preparing for exams be motivating and fun?  Can exam tasks develop useful skills and provide relevant language practice?  Is it simple to integrate them into a young learners’ course?  The answer to all these questions is yes!  In this session, we’ll explore how the Cambridge Young Learners Tests can be an asset to the young learner classroom and how we can use them with any course book.

Webinar for Teachers
Gamification
in Exam Preparation
______________________________________________________
Wednesday 7 October - 10:00 – 11:30
 
 

 
Abstract
   

Do you like playing? Most of our students do, too!

As we are starting off with the new academic year, many teachers are looking for inspiration for exam preparation courses. Whether you are teaching online or offline, there are many ways to gamify exam preparation. In this interactive session, we are going to look at ways we can turn exam tasks into games and activities to motivate, challenge and engage our students. You will go away with an idea for each skill that you can immediately use in your next lesson, regardless of the exam you are preparing your students for.
