Life competencies can be integrated into any subject, but they are particularly suitable for teaching English. Learning an additional language already involves many of the identified competencies such as communication, collaboration, and critical thinking. This means there is lots of scope to develop these skills further, in an integrated way, through the teaching of English. This webinar will look at how Cambridge approaches these life competencies across the learning journey.
Specifically, we will focus on what the Cambridge Language and Pedagogy Research Team have identified as life competencies and their relation to traditional models of 21st-century skills and foundational aspects of language learning. We will also explore how the understanding of the competencies translates into learning outcomes and highlight practical activities that teachers can easily integrate into secondary and adult level language lessons.
