Welcome to the teacher's area of the Flo-Joe website
These are some of the comments we noted during a training event for English Language teachers about their attitude towards teaching Speaking skills:
want to feel I've done more than encourage the students
to have a chat."
S.P. Teacher, Spain
do a lot of exam preparation and want my students
to feel confident when they go into the Interview
S.A. Teacher, Italy
often spend hours preparing for my Speaking classes
as I feel far more vulnerable delivering this subject."
B.S. Teacher, UK
As teachers ourselves, we know how difficult it can be to teach Speaking skills to upper-intermediate and advanced level learners. This is why we've been making samples of our Get Speaking Task Sheets available for free to visitors to our sister site, Splendid Speaking.
Now, by popular demand we can offer a compilation of ALL our Get Speaking Task Sheets: 26 ready-to-go lessons for your upper-intermediate to advanced level Speaking classes.
Would you like to have access to motivating activities for your upper-intermediate or advanced level English speaking classes? Would you like your students to learn highly-practical methods to help them develop their English Speaking skills, whether for English Speaking exams, work or university? Do you want them to have access to useful topic vocabulary to use in their presentations and discussions?
And would you like to have all this delivered in one simple, easy-to-print page, ready to go for your Speaking lessons?
If so, that's why we've put together Volumes 1 and 2 of Get Speaking Task Sheets to help you plan and teach your Speaking classes this year.
The Get Speaking Task Sheets are ideal for teachers in schools, colleges or universities looking for ready-made lessons for their English Speaking classes. Teachers doing one-to-one or small-group private lessons will also find the Task Sheets an easy resource to support their sessions. And students working independently who use Instant Messaging or tools like Skype for speaking practice will benefit from the structure and tips the Task Sheets offer as well as the topic vocabulary supporting each task.
what each Get Speaking Task Sheet:
Two speaking tasks: Each Task Sheet contains 2 tasks: a featured activity and a secondary task. Tasks covered include presentations and discussions, conversations or role plays.
focus: The featured task comes with a task focus,
offering students a memorable and practical way of
delivering the task professionally.
Topic vocabulary: Each Task Sheet comes with a list of topic vocabulary students can use in their presentation or discussion.
Sample recording: Each Task Sheet comes with a link to one of our free Splendid Speaking recordings offering learners the chance to hear a student carrying out a similar task.
The Task Sheets cover a wide range of subjects and can easily be slotted into your own syllabus.
Each week we publish a Task Sheet from Volume 1 or 2 over at our sister site, Splendid Speaking. However, if you prefer to have access to ALL task sheets IMMEDIATELY you can now do so.
