Video Tutorial #1: The Verbal Cloze

Nov 04, 2012

Assuming you are willing to sing in front of your students a little, this is a great activity that requires no preparation, no materials, and very little instruction. It’s also a phenomenal way to start the class.

 

One note that I forgot to mention in the video:

I use the English translation very sparingly. Although students absolutely love it, it also has a side-effect of reinforcing the erroneous belief that Spanish and English have 1 to 1 word translations. But used cautiously, I think it’s ok.
