Speed Chatting – pratigt, roligt och lärorikt.

Speed Chatting – pratigt, roligt och lärorikt.
Nu tänker jag bjuda på ett lektionsupplägg som eleverna gillar och som brukar vara mycket lyckat. Det handlar om speed chatting. Ja, det låter nästan som speed dating och det är nästan vad det är. Jag möblerar salen så att det blir ett eller två långbord beroende på hur salen ser ut och hur många elever det är i klassen. Eleverna sitter vid bordet och bildar par med den som sitter mittemot. Uppgiften är att samtala med sin partner om ett givet ämne i en minut, sedan flyttar eleverna på ena sidan bordet sig ett steg åt vänster och därmed får alla en ny samtalspartner. Jag brukar introducera den här samtalsövningen i år 7, då får eleverna titta på bilder som jag satt ihop i ett bildspel och diskutera det de ser och associerar till. Övningen går att variera på flera olika sätt: prata om ord, påståenden, korta filmklipp, låta eleverna sitta i grupper eller att prata under längre tid. /Hanna

Teaching Speaking in a Language Classroom: Creating a Conversation Box for your ESL or EFL Classroom An Engaging Second Language Teaching Tool One of my favorite tools in my ESL classroom is my conversation idea box – a decorated cardboard box that I’ve filled with an assortment of conversation questions and speaking prompts. Somehow, a box full of questions seems less threatening and more fun to students than a textbook full of questions. It is a fairly simple idea with so many potential uses. If you teach speaking or writing, I would recommend trying one out in your own classroom. In this article, I've outlined a bunch of ideas on how to make one, what to fill it with, and possible ways to use it.
