Silent viewing – att lära ut språklig interaktion

Silent viewing – att lära ut språklig interaktion
Att träna språklig interaktion utan att eleverna känner att det blir tvunget är svårt många gånger. Ett sätt att få igång kommunikationen är genom sk silent viewing. Det är filmklipp utan ljud som man tittar på och sedan kan man: Förutspå – om man tittar på en del av sekvensen och sedan gissar vad som ska komma härnäst.Ordlistor – man skriver ner ord som rör sekvensen och sedan återberättar historien.Eleverna kan skriva dialogerna och läsa in och göra en text/tal till sekvensen.Eleverna kan skriva om historien med ett annat slut och sedan dela med varandra.I grupper kan en elev titta på filmen och sen återberätta för de andra som sitter med ryggen mot – en sk bakdörr.Eleverna kan fylla i ord på vissa ställen där ljudet är avstängt – sk cloze listening. Det går ju givetvis bra att bara stänga av ljudet på vilken filmsekvens som helst. Om du vill ha mer förslag på arbetssätt rekomenderar jag denna länk. Förslag på tysta filmklipp att använda är:

Listening through video: 7 things to keep in mind A few months ago I was talking to a friend who’d just dropped out of his English classes halfway through the course. Here’s a condensed version of our conversation: “It was not a bad course at all, and the teacher was very friendly and knowledgeable. It’s just that…” Pronunciation Pronunciation Lessons Intonation - Intonation is the rising and falling sounds of the voice when speaking. Intonation (Part 2) - Phrasing - In addition to the intonation of a statement, there is another aspect of speech that indicates meaning -- phrasing. The Best Fun Videos For English Language Learners In 2014 – Part One I use short, funny video clips a lot when I’m teaching ELLs, and you can read in detail about how I use them in The Best Popular Movies/TV Shows For ESL/EFL (& How To Use Them). In short, there are many ways to use them that promote speaking, listening, writing and reading. I’ve posted quite a few of them during the first six months of this year, and I thought it would be useful to readers — and to me — if I brought them together in one post.

Translating English – WebEnglish.se Translation is still a prevalent method of English language instruction in Sweden, although the last three Curricula (Lgr89, Lpo94 and Lgr11) have tried to implement Communicative Language Teaching instead. Teachers are prone to teaching the same way they were taught, and parents are prone to demanding the same kind of teaching that they were used to at school. Many teachers face strong opposition when they try to implement communicative practices in their classes. Related

Using Silent Video in the EFL Classroom This video is the BOMB! It is captivating, absorbing, a story par excellence but also SILENT! Yes, silent films are great for getting students to produce language — and after all is said and done, that most often is the hardest thing to do, getting the students speaking and learning language by just communicating. That is our job, to get the students so absorbed in the communicative act that they forget they are learning. When we forget and are not consciously fixated on the language – we learn so much more! And silent , great silent movies do that so well.

BATTLESHIP: IRREGULAR VERBS Much to learn, you still have. – Joda. Despite the evidence that the number of irregular verbs is declining in the English language, there is no danger they will disappear, and the struggle will continue. There are many attempts to find a shortcut in learning irregular verbs, yet with all the options and “magic tricks” available, learning these verbs requires much memorization, drilling and practice. Today I will show how I use the Battleship game to drill and practise irregular verbs in a fun way. Before the game: Video Lesson: Mr. Bean Follow me on twitter This is a video lesson based around the video “Mr. Bean packs his suitcase” thanks to British Council for bringing it to my attention in their lesson plan on making predictions but I’ve adapted it for use in different ways with different levels. Kids and lower levels The aim of this lesson plan is to practice holiday vocabulary (clothes and items that go in a suitcase) and some basic grammar structure. Project a picture of a suitcase on to the board (or draw one) and ask “What do you put in your suitcase when you go on holiday?”

Six Amazing Websites that Make Your Writing Stronger Long writing activities are not very frequently done in class. I tend to think that my students are like me; I need the right kind of atmosphere.

100 English Synonyms to Expand Your Vocabulary – Espresso English A synonym is a word with the same or a similar meaning as another word. For example, the words big and large are synonyms. Buy and purchase are also synonyms – although we tend to use “buy” in a more informal context, and “purchase” in a more formal context.
