Five ways to use speed dating to improve speaking
This webinar will discuss different ways to use speed dating (the traditional 3-2-1 exercise) in your class to focus on different speaking tasks: ice breakers/simply getting students to talk, improving fluency, practicing specific grammar or vocabulary, practicing presentations, or discussing a reading or homework. The goal is to teach your students one activity that you can then vary to elicit different skills and also, to provide them with more student-centered, yet guided talk time.
