See and hear the meaning

Via Nik Peachey, Ricard Garcia
Susan's insight:

A visual way for language teachers to introduce new vocabulary and concepts to their students.  Vidtionary defines and expresses the words using images.  I think it could be a great success in the ESL or EFL classroom.

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird | Web 2.0 Tools in the EFL Classroom | Scoop.it

I believe storytelling is a very powerful teaching resource for young learners. They feel comfortable with it, and when they read or listen to a story they stop caring about “understanding every single word" of it.


Via Shona Whyte, Yuly Asencion, Jen Hazard Lemery, Tracy Webb Sharp, BilingualStudyGuides
Susan's insight:

I have used Storytelling with 15-year olds!  They also loved it.  If you get your students to write their stories directed towards young children, it helps them to use simple vocabulary and structures which is great writing practice for them.  Afterwards they can share them on a wiki/blog/moodle site.  Very rich! I'm attaching two examples of my students' stories.

I think storytelling is also a great way to teach adult learners. I love the comment that they stop trying to understand every single word, and instead focus on the story. This aligns with how we engage, communicate, and consequently acquire languages. Thanks!

Not to mention, makes learning downright more enjoyable!

#giovanna g.: da twitter #Scuola2.0...... lo strumento è proprio utile, specie nelle difficoltà di apprendimento alla lettura.

 "Read, listen & learn a little English !"

Annette's new blog displays 'tiny texts' matched with takeaway tests, vocabulary notes and the corresponding recordings. Learners are likely to enjoy their tiny format  -and their everyday topics as well. - "Are you a mosquito magnet ?" (yesterday's post) looks like an itching issue for many of us at the moment :o)  | Annette Porte's comes from Scotland and currently lives & teaches in Italy.

It's been around for a while and it's great. Short, snappy, current, usable texts and good for jigsaw reading.
