Webinar | Preparing Students for the Cambridge IGCSE™ FLE Exam

Preparing students for the Cambridge IGCSE™ First Language English exam poses a lot of challenges. It requires our students to develop competency in a wide range of reading and writing skills, and to deploy these skills in a way that satisfies a wide range of question types. Furthermore, the exam is often seen by students as something ‘difficult to revise for’. This webinar explores simple strategies to give students a firm grasp of the requirements of the exam, and offers ways to reframe FLE course as a ‘revisable exam’. We will also consider how we can use English resources to support students’ wellbeing.
