Do you understand? – effective ways of concept checking

This Sunday I’ll have the pleasure to give my first webinar. It is organised by BELTA (the association of English teachers in Belgium) and is going to take place at 4pm. I hope that at least some of you will join the session 🙂

Some of the things that I’m going to cover are:

  1. what is concept checking and when does it come in handy
  2. 7 different ways of concept checking, including (among other things):
  • CCQs – common mistakes and tips on making them better
  • timelines – some advice on how to liven them up
  • translation: its pros and cons
  • do you understand? – when is it OK to ask this, and why are we being told we shouldn’t

The webinar will be very practically oriented, and you will get to practise all 7 ways of concept checking at least once. To give you a taste of what you might expect, I’d like to direct you to two posts I’ve written on the topic:

  1. Do you understand?
  2. Checking understanding – practice

It’s also completely free to attend 🙂 You can find out more about Sunday BELTA webinars (as well as the one I’m giving) here.
