Teach with Dave Masterclass, Session 1 – Exams and Teenagers: Facing the Facts
For most teenage students, exams are stressful, tiring, dull and seemingly pointless. However, it’s fair to say that exams are an inescapable part of their, and their teachers’, lives. So, when life gives you lemons, students and teachers have no choice but to make lemonade.
This practical session will examine how we can turn exam negatives into positives, helping our students not only to get excellent exam results but also to learn useful life skills and to remain fresh, keen and motivated learners of English.
