ICFE Webinar 2 – 13 March 2013 (2-3pm)

Designing materials to teach financial English

Many teachers are unsure how best to teach the language of financial English, which can appear very technical to the uninitiated. Course books can be useful, but with some classes they don’t quite fit the bill. This session will demonstrate just how simple it is to create effective materials using software tools which are either inexpensive to buy or freely available on the internet.
