Following his first post on giving the learners a ‘pragmatic shock’, Arizio Sweeting returns with more voice-based activities to get your students speaking in English.

In this second voiced-based post, I would like to share with you two activities to help learners become more aware of the power of their voice.

I have called these activities: Intonation Gap and Voiceover, respectively.

The first activity, Intonation Gap, aims to encourage learners to notice what their voice sounds like when expressing emotions such as fear, shock, excitement, and so on in their speech.

The activity works like this:

Divide the class into two groups: A and B.
First, give the learners some nonsense sounds on the board e.g. piupiu, etc.
Tell the learners that they are going to ask a question using the nonsense sounds.
The questions must be short, preferably one-word questions e.g. piupiu? Demo what to do.
On the board, write up some adjectives such as afraid, surprised, angry, pleased, excited, questioning, etc.
Using the nonsense sounds, learners practise asking questions expressing the emotions on the adjectives on the board. If you have small mirror, give these to the learners so they can see the facial expressions or mouth articulations. The same procedure is repeated for answers.
Give each learner the name of a suburb. Alternatively, you could use shop names, street names etc.
Tell the learners to mingle and ask each other questions to find someone with the same information, trying to communicate the emotions that would go with the adjectives on the board. This time, they should use real words e.g. Marble Arch? And short answers such as Yes and No.
Learners should respond in the same way, paying close attention to the emotion being expressed before giving an answer.

Barcelona soccer club defends use, teaching of Catalan language at politically sensitive time

Barcelona soccer club defends use, teaching of Catalan language at politically sensitive time | Technology x education | Scoop.it

MADRID, Spain – Long a symbol of Catalan identity, Barcelona soccer club added its voice Wednesday to a simmering political dispute between the region of Catalonia and Spain's central government.

Weeks after Spain's education minister said he was drafting a proposal to make the teaching of Castilian Spanish obligatory in schools throughout the country, Barcelona defended the use of the Catalan language and how it is being taught in the region.

"Our language, like our club, is an element of integration which permits us to identify with our country (Catalonia)," the club said.

Catalonia uses a system called "immersion teaching" to propagate the use of its language, and the club said it "energetically asserts its right to use the Catalan language and the model of language immersion that has been in force in Catalonia over the last 34 years."

Free Technology for Teachers: A New Place To Find Educational iPad Apps | Technology x education | Scoop.it

"I teased this news on Facebook and Twitter eight days ago and over the weekend I made a soft launch of iPad Apps for School. After a bunch of tweaking I'm ready to say that iPad Apps for School is ready for the world. This new blog will feature reviews of iOS apps (both free and paid) as well as some occasional bits of how-to and advice on using iPads in education. Not to worry, I plan to keep up the same pace of posting here on Free Technology for Teachers and on Android 4 Schools. "
