Jon Hird
Jon is based in Oxford, UK, where he divides his time between teaching English at the University of Oxford, teacher training and writing ELT materials. Jon has a particular interest in Grammar, English for Academic Purposes and dyslexia and learning English. He has written and contributed to a number of ELT publications, including co-authoring the B1 level of Macmillan’s brand new course book series ‘Language Hub’.

This practical webinar considers the importance of pre-task planning in classroom speaking activities and looks at research evidence of how this can result in significantly increased fluency, complexity and grammatical accuracy. We will look at how a planning stage can be integrated into a speaking activity and along the way we will listen to and briefly assess a student undertaking a classroom speaking task. The session will be illustrated with material from Language Hub.
