11 Summary of Week 4

You should now be able to:

  • understand what is involved in speaking
  • understand different ways to practise speaking on your own and with others
  • understand different activities that you can do to practise your speaking skills.

Next week, Olly will talk about listening which, as you’ve seen this week, is the other side of the coin.

You are now half way through the course. The Open University would really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for future improvement in our optional end-of-course survey [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] , which you will also have an opportunity to complete at the end of Week 8. Participation will be completely confidential and we will not pass on your details to others.

You can now go to Week 5.
