10 Activities - Using Pictures in Class - ELT Connect
A picture speaks a thousand words! And you can get your students speaking just as many by using pictures in class. Check out these fun and engaging communicative activities below. I find these work at all ages and the best thing is that each task can be adapted to the level you are teaching and designed with a particular language focus in mind so whether you’re teaching the Past Simple at A1 or the use of cleft sentences at C1, you can pull from your bank of pictures and adjust your instructions as you see fit!! 1. Dialogue Bubbles Choose a picture with two or more people and in pairs, students design a catchy advertisement or witty dialogue OR use it to focus on a particular grammar structure such as ‘going to’ (see below). You could even choose a picture with two or more objects and ask your students to use their imaginations to add dialogue bubbles to the objects. 2. Storyboards are great to focus on particular grammar structures as you can assign the focus. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
