Listening Comprehension - Stranger Things 1x01

Listening Comprehension - Stranger Things 1x01

*** answer key included This is a listening comprehension for the 1st episode of the first season of the Netflix series Stranger Things The document is already formatted, so you only have to print the needed pages and makes copies. As always, the answer key is included. Finally, I have also included a creative writing journal for the students to complete either at school or at home. I have created listening comprehensions for other episodes of the series. The difficulty level of the listening comprehensions progresses as the series advances. It is therefore perfect to assess the progression of a student’s learning. Notes from my past experiences and my applied linguistics studies if this evaluation is intended for ESL/EFL learners: Linguistics and language acquisition studies show that active listening, such as completing a listening comprehension evaluation, benefits ESL learners much more than passive listening. It gives their listening a purpose and focuses students on trying to figure out the words and meaning. According to language learning studies, the use of authentic material (meant for first language) provides more benefits than adapted material. If possible, do not use subtitles when presenting a TV show or movie. My experience has shown me that students focus too much on reading the subtitles instead of trying to listen for understanding. Students may feel overwhelmed the first time but they will gain in confidence over time.

Reading Comprehension - 1984 (Penguin Readers)

Reading Comprehension - 1984 (Penguin Readers)

*** answer key is included A reading comprehension for the Penguin Readers book 1984 by George Orwell. Books from Penguin Readers are adapted for English learners (ESL or EFL) and categorized by levels (from 1 to 6). For more information, go to www.penguinreaders.com The Penguin Readers' version of 1984 is a level 4 (intermediate) book. I used the activity sheets available on the Penguin Readers' teacher website, adapted it and made it into a user-friendly test. You just need to print, photocopy and bring to class. These tests are not available to students on the Penguin Readers' website. You need to have a teacher account to access these worksheets. My test includes room for students to write their answers, the identification of the chapters when it applies, and is on 60 points, and therefore easy for teachers to assess their students' understanding. Even though, it is adapted and not authentic English material, I swear by Penguin Readers for all my classes because for most ESL or EFL students, it is the only way they can read classics of the English Literature. I find it important for students to learn not only the English language but the English culture. And let's face it, literature is a big part of any culture.
