The analysis of the EGE (Unified State Exam) results reveals that most Russian school graduates’ productive language skills (writing and speaking) significantly fall behind their receptive skills (listening and reading). This disbalance is caused by the number of factors, with the lack of time in a lesson for every student to practise their speaking skills being the major one.

Considering the ways to overcome this hurdle, we designed a flipped classroom EGE course on Moodle platform, aimed at teaching EGE speaking. The course includes the lessons on English grammar, vocabulary and word formation, examined in EGE, but the main focus is on the exam format tasks which allow students to train speaking skills on their own. The time of the lesson, exempted from instructing students and their initial training, is then used for group discussions on the same topics and individual work with struggling students.

The course was implemented in State School N 63 in Chelyabinsk in 2021-2022, and the school graduates’ EGE results of 2022, compared to those of 2021, proved its effectiveness.
