About this course

The use of speaking and listening skills not only helps us communicate our ideas to the world, but effective verbal communication is also essential for a successful career. 

In this course, we will look at:

  • Speaking and listening activities that can be used to develop vocabulary in any subject. 

This course is appropriate for primary schools.

  • KS1 and KS2
