Language chunks forum
A summary of ideas
An interesting context, relevant to the students' age and interests, will make language learning
. To set the context, you can use pictures, stories, songs, flashcards, etc (Vera L, Angela, Cristina Santos)
Thank you!
Repetition aids memory- use a variety of activities to do this (e.g. songs, drills, games, etc) (Sonia V., Teresa P.)
Involve the students through a variety of interaction patterns: T-S and S-S to allow for increased student-talking time (Susana P)
Vary teacher roles e.g. controller (input new language), organiser (set up tasks and activities) and monitor (stand back and encourage/praise students while on task- listen and record) (Nelson)
Activities to practise and revise language
Find the differences (Susana A.)
Picture dictation (Susana A.)
Role-play (Maria and Cristina S.)
Class surveys (Teresa S.)
Guessing games for question practice (Sandra D)
Vocabulary recycling games e.g. word chain, tennis vocab, pictionary, etc (Sonia A.)
Slam or flyswatters for vocab or listening comprehension e.g. teacher describes an animal, students swat the correct one (Tania)
Collages and labelling (Ivone)
Rhymes (Vera R.)
Projects (Sonia R)
Materials and resources
Arts and crafts to practise new words e.g. instructions language (Maria)
Pelmanism (Sandra D.)
TPR and mime (Vera L.)
Realia (Sandra D.)
Chants (Teresa S.)
Puppets (Telma M.)
The Lexical Approach
Teaching language in phrases or chunks is more effective for acquisition and fluency than isolated items (Susana A.)
Get students to
these chunks and highlight them (Teresa S)
Teach fixed phrases or collocations and write them on the board (Tania)
Use mnemonics to activate these chunks (Teresa S., Vera G.)
Play 'Password'! (Vera M.)
Nelson (CiPELT tutor)
