Further topics addressed in this course will be: encouraging learners to develop efficient communication strategies, giving feedback during oral work and assessing oral communication skills.

As a special feature and in cooperation with PH Radio, participants in this course will have the opportunity to explore ways of including audio projects into their English teaching.
