Every worksheet should have a speaking element!!

I'm as guilty as anyone for forgetting to do this. All those years of giving listening, reading and writing exercises for homework! But now there is no reason why every worksheet should not have a speaking exercise. When completing a Schoolshape worksheet just click 'Speaking' under 'Activities' and tell them to say some words based on the listening, reading or writing exercises on your worksheet. The icing on the cake is of course to require them to record a conversation with someone else - another 'Teacher'. (Examples of teachers could be 1: students in your school’s twinned classes 2: a student in your school (better at French than you) 3: a French speaking family member)
