A Day In The Life - EFL CLASSROOM 2.0

A Day In The Life - EFL CLASSROOM 2.0 | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Nice short (2min 45sec) video, no speech, showing one man going about his day.

 

David Deubelbeiss suggests using it for speaking/writing about daily routines: "Ask students to describe (as you play) or write (during / after) what this guy does in his day. Nice, real context for practicing speaking about routines."  But it could just as easily be using for describing what is happening at the present time, to practice present continuous or for fluency.

This looks like a fantastic tool. You can use the search engine like a corpus to look for vocabulary and grammar you want to teach and then the site will make the activity for you. Lots of ready made quizzes there already too.

I tested it as English isn't my mother tongue to improve my writing and I like especially the opening help window while clicking the highlighted errors. It reminds me the lost knowledge over the years and so I can refresh it.

More in-depth than typical word processing. Has some prAACtical applications for sure.
