summer series: three listening activities

This week I am showcasing three listening activities from this site which have gathered a lot of interest. In fact, the listening realm together with vocabulary activities seem to raise the most interest on this site. Click on the links for the full posts.

In one minute videos I take a look at Hugh Dellar’s collection of one minute videos on the Lexical Lab channel on Youtube and share a generic way in which those videos can be exploited in the language classroom.

In the ultimate listening game: ask Google assistant I devise ways in which we can use this feature with low language levels and create meaningful listening experiences in the shape of a game to support certain grammar and vocabulary areas.

In whispering lyrics dictation I flip Chinese whispers on its head and use songs as sources for this type of listening activity. Very well tested and tons of fun.

I am leaving out a lot of listening activities, as my target is three but feel free to explore more by clicking on “listening” on the skills menu. Next week I will be bringing a selection of speaking activities. See you then!
