What do teachers say about this resource? (9749)

Excellent! It guides teachers and students through the process in preparing and delivering the spoken language presentation from the very beginning stages to the end performance. It encourages students to think about how they feel about presenting and also gives useful and practical advice to maximise students' potential... I really liked the tune into the assessment exercise that helps the students to check they understand the criteria and challenge them to consider their own starting points in terms of their skills, prior knowledge and confidence levels. I also like the presentation proposal sheet which encourages the students to clarify their chosen topic and to ensure that it is appropriate... The topic generator and mini-presentation activities are extremely helpful in supporting the students so they can form ideas and also in building their confidence... Invaluable to both English teachers and their students. It has thought of everything!
