Skal du forberede dine elever til en Cambridge English-eksamen?
Studieskolen tilbyder kurser for nye og igangværende undervisere, der vil optimere undervisningen og fokusere eksamensforberedelsen for deres elever.

Vi afholder som regel kurser i både København og Vejle to gange om året. Nye kurser efterår 2019.

Kurserne foregår på engelsk og bliver ledt af en af vores erfarne Cambridge-undervisere. Hvis du ikke har fulgt et kursus hos os før, er det en forudsætning, at du starter med modul 1 Essential introduction to Cambridge.

Module One - Introduction to Cambridge English exams 
 
This course is for those of you who would like to teach Cambridge English at your school, but have no idea where to start. 
 
Perhaps your school has already been offering Cambridge, but it’s your first time teaching it, or perhaps both you and your school are offering Cambridge for the first time. 
 
This course will - step-by-step - walk you through what the Cambridge First exam looks like. 
 
On this course, we will discuss how Cambridge works and what it means for your students to take an international Cambridge exam. We will analyze a sample exam certificate and discuss the value of a Cambridge exam. We will also examine the correlation between Cambridge and the Danish system and discuss how you can adapt your teaching experience to the Cambridge system. The main aim for the day is to work through each of the four main areas of the exam – speaking, writing, listening, and reading & use of English. This will give you a solid understanding of these skill areas and the way they are presented in the exam.
 
After completing the course, you will be able to:

  • Explain the exam process and parameters to your students, including the value of the exam certificate.
  • Understand the foundation of the Cambridge course, which is to prepare for the exam.
  • Know what is expected from the students in order to pass the exam.
  • Understand how to approach teaching a Cambridge course and be ready to start looking at the textbook.

By the end of the course, you will be ready for the next step (module two) where you will start planning your course and working on lesson plans.
