Using Visualisation for the Present Continuous This is an idea I tried out with an elementary group of young learners the other day. The focus in the coursebook was on teaching the present continuous for actions that are happening now and at the book had very helpfully provided a recorded phone conversation between two people meeting at a railway station that went something like this: “Where are you?” “I’m standing on platform nine and three quarters. Where are you?” “I’m waiting under the big clock. “I’m wearing a red t-shirt. “I’m wearing a yellow t-shirt. “Hello Frank.” “Hello Matilda.” * And are we really sure we want to be teaching our learners the phrase “What are you wearing?” Having achieved “presentation” we then moved onto “practice”, which involved a nice un-jumbling word order task, because apparently putting words into the correct order helps the learners to process the meaning and use of the present continuous. “I am sitting down.” So I thought that using visualisation techniques might work better. Look up at the sky.
