Cambridge expert talks about writing skills assessment

On November 22, the seminar “Assessment of Writing Test” was held by the trainer of the Cambridge Certification Center Claire Barnes. The problems of the scientific seminar included questions related both to difficulties in teaching students writing in English, and to the peculiarities of preparing, passing and evaluating the written tests of the Cambridge exams (B2-C1).

Students were presented with the problems of writing skills in Russian students, as well as the most important aspects that teachers should pay attention to when teaching students writing.

“Should I find fault with spelling when teaching writing? I guess I will disappoint you, but Cambridge examiners do not! We do not correct spelling errors if the meaning of the sentence is clear. ” During the discussion, Claire Barnes gave a number of practical recommendations, as well as examples of working out writing skills.
