Some lessons comparing city and country life. Using traffic light cards and mini-whiteboards.\n\nThe Town and Country Mouse Lesson includes a link to a French cartoon version of the story. You will find it on the 3rd slide. My year 9s really enjoyed this lesson and created some fab comic strips!
Divide class into pairs and sit one half of pairs on chairs in a circle, facing outwards. Partners stand opposite them. Inner circle do one side of conversation and outer circle do other. Students do the dialogue over and over again and use different moods, types of voices etc to practise this. The outer circle should move round everytime so that they have a new partner each time. This is great for breaking down barriers and having a laugh. Get them to do it as if one is deaf or as if one of them has a lisp or as if they fancy their partners etc. By the end of the session they might be able to do a large part of the conversation using only the English as a prompt.
Here is a compilation of all the listening questions on AQA 2010-2012 Context LEISURE: Sub context: HOLIDAYS. Relevant audio files, mark schemes and transcripts also included. Audio files are per question as grouped in the word file and I have cut out as much of the repetition and pauses as I can. Please see other resources for more past papers by topic.
These activities work well in groups of 2-4. I get the children to start with the dominoes to link them round in a complete rectangle. Once the children have completed this, I check it and get them to leave it on the table so they can then self check when playing pairs and I know they are matching the words and pictures correctly.
Pairs cards have been created so that once printed back to back the cards can not been seen through. The words cards have a different colour backing to the images so children can easily tell the difference. Therefore, they can pick one of each type to match them more easily.
