The Importance of Oracy in the Classroom: Let’s talk about talk with Sarah Lambert

Reading Time: < 1 minute

In this episode of the Teach Middle East Podcast, we are talking about talk with Sarah Lambert from Dubai College. We are discussing oracy in the classroom.  Communicating lies at the centre of what takes place in the classroom. Oracy is not just talking, it requires that teachers and students think carefully about the spoken language they are using. This will of course vary from subject to subject and among year groups. One thing that holds true is talk is very important especially now. Let’s talk!
