I always wanted to be a teacher when I was young. This picture could so easily have been me. One of my best Christmas presents ever was when my mum managed to find me a real school register and I used to fill it in every day with my special teacher’s red pen !! Registration is done electronically these days, but new exercise books and pens are still a source of pleasure to people like me. I know I am not alone !!

A book reference : Teaching Listening Comprehension by Penny UR (CUP, 1984)  :  teaching-listening-comprehension-paperback-frontmatter

Some LISTENING activities to try :

Listening in-class / Listening at home / Via your school VLN / via Pronotes / via your teacher blog.

Quick listening tasks

  • Identify the words in the order you hear them.
  • Identifying numbers
  • Dictation of a sentence / several sentences / of part of a dialogue
  • Sounds > meanings – did you hear PAIR or PEAR ?
  • Re-order the words as you hear them and circle the word you don’t hear.

Read this quote from Penny Ur’s book and see if it is applicable to your ideas :

“Many classroom listening comprehension exercises demand no response until the end of fairly long stretches of speech, so that when it comes, this reponse is largely a test of memory rather than of comprehension.” p.4
