Storytelling and story-making for Cambridge English: Young Learners
Date: Tuesday 30 May
In this webinar, Karen Saxby will explore the reasons why storytelling (and story-making) in the classroom not only helps young learners acquire elementary English in a fun, natural, meaningful and stress-free way but also, ultimately, helps them to complete the more creative, productive tasks in Cambridge English: Starters, Movers and Flyers tests more confidently and effectively. We will consider, in particular, these points in relation to Reading/Writing and Speaking tasks that learners will meet in the current tests and also in the revised versions in 2018.
Karen Saxby has produced a wealth of material for younger learners of English, with recent published works including the Fun For series for Starters, Movers and Flyers, the Story Fun series and KET for Schools Trainer, all written for Cambridge University Press. Karen has an RSA TEFL diploma and a first class degree in Linguistics and French. She left the classroom to focus on a full-time career as a writer of teaching and testing material for students of English, with a particular interest in producing material for young learners. Karen has given talks and delivered workshops to teachers in various countries on behalf of Cambridge Assessment. Additionally, she has acted as a consultant for the production of EFL material and the development of language test formats.
