Key Competences for the 21st Century Learner

In this special series of online events our authors and ELT experts will explore key methodological concepts from the LOMLOE and share practical tips on how to implement them in the classroom.

Much more than video, developing real-world competences

Videos and audiovisual materials are certainly a great resource to motivate teenagers and engage them in their learning. They can also help to bring English to life, lift it off the page,  and develop key competences such as critical thinking or cultural awareness. How can we exploit them to the full to make the most out of them in the classroom? Come to this practical session to find out!
