English Language Webinars

Trinity organises events and various webinar series throughout the year. Most Trinity-organised events are free, but may require advance registration.

Success in Trinity's ISE exam (Speaking and Listening)

Trinity’s Integrated Skills in English (ISE) exam is designed for those who need to demonstrate their level of English proficiency either for further academic study, or for work purposes. As with any exam, students need to learn what to expect, and how best to tackle specific tasks.

 

Summary

This session on the Speaking and Listening module was designed for teachers who already have some knowledge and experience with ISE, but who would benefit from a more detailed look at the assessment criteria so they understand how examiners mark performance and what constitutes poor, average or excellent ratings. The presenter focused on the tasks that students find most challenging in each module and offered practical guidance on how teachers should approach practice and preparation to help students succeed.
