Errors and what to do with them

Learners make mistakes – always have, always will. It’s part of the learning process. What we do with and about these errors as teachers is the thing that can make the difference. In this session we will cover the theory behind errors in language learning, the essentials of corrective feedback, error correction techniques for writing and speaking, and how to work towards results aligned with the levels and expectations of Cambridge exams at different levels.
