Exams are becoming increasingly important and most teachers will need to prepare students for them at some point in their teaching career.
One of the biggest challenges for teachers of exam classes is how to balance exam preparation with the need to keep improving a student’s general level of English. ETpedia Exams provides both new and more experienced teachers with tips, activities and pointers on preparing students for EFL and ESL exams, helping you balance language practice for everyday life with the requirements of exams.
Are you are a teacher who has to write tests and exams from time to time, or a published writer who needs to include exam practice or tests in your materials? This resource also offers a useful set of checklists that you can turn to when you’re in need of a few extra ideas – or looking for a quick alternative way to design a test or write a type of question.
Like every book in the ETpedia series, ETpedia Exams is divided into units of 10 tips, making it easy to dip into as needed, as well as read cover-to-cover. The Appendix at the end provides photocopiable materials that can be used as they are, or adapted and developed to suit your own context.
ETpedia Exams is suitable for ELT teachers of varying experience levels.
It is ideal for teachers who are just starting out and want to feel more confident preparing students for internal or external exams. It also provides inspiration for experienced teachers and teacher trainers with lots of new ideas and checklists to develop their skills.
