“Discovering Oracy: Unlocking students’ communicative potential in today’s online world”
In this practical workshop we begin by presenting Oracy for the uninitiated; what is Oracy? When and where did it originate?

We will present the 4 Pillars of Oracy – the practical framework for teachers who plan, implement and evaluate Oracy in and outside the classroom (and comparison with the CEFR). Oracy methodology in action The 2 key areas for Oracy education in the classroom. 1- Interactive talk in the classroom – orchestrating talk for effective classroom management 2- Dialogic teaching – what is it and how does it work?
