Dictation is a time-tested language learning activity with numerous variations on the standard method, from dictogloss to “tape recorder” dictation, to student dictators, and others. After briefly describing the basic dictation method, the presenter will share some of the more effective and creative alternatives. In addition, the presenter will share ideas for pre-dictation activities involving pictures that correspond to the dictation sentences. Post-dictation review activities that make use of the pictures will also be explained. While the material comes from the presenter’s textbooks, this presentation will be useful for any teacher with an interest in dictation.
