What is this webinar about?

Knowing grammar and vocabulary is at the heart of learning a language. The assessment of vocabulary and grammar is, therefore, one of the most common forms of testing for all language teachers. But why do we test grammar and vocabulary and what is the best way to assess this knowledge? How do we choose what to test at different proficiency levels? What resources can help teachers? We will consider these questions and we will show you how a better understanding of the what, why and how of testing grammar and vocabulary can help you create your own tests or evaluate others with more confidence.
