Inspiration required please! I feel that my attempts to get A Level groups to speak, range from lack lustre to just feable! I am taking on a large AS group this year (17) and they have been "tick box" trained for CAs in speaking (personal opinions on this tactic aside.) They are relatively strong in terms of GCSE exam performance, but not used to spontaneous speech. Given that the style of the GCSE exam couldn't be further from the AS exam, we will need to remedy this quickly. I want to focus on speaking in class and leave a lot of the reading for homework, at least in the first term, but i just can't think of any activites which will encourage this. What do you do? Any activities or games would be really appreciated! Thankfully our new Y10 are changing to the Edexcel certificate for all three languages, so we could use these suggestions in Y10 too, and deal with the speaking issue earlier. Thanks in advance!
