Coping strategies Chinese Whispers
In Chinese whispers, students form a circle and repeat a sentence until it goes all around the circle. Usually, the sentence is changed somehow. Students have to do two things 1 Imagine they are a famous person and repeat the sentence like that person would say it. 2 When they hear the sentence the first time, ask the speaker
Can you speak more slowly/simply/clearly/loudly please ?
The speaker repeats the sentence again, but changes it according to the question.
The idea is to give students a chance to develop coping strategies for listening to Native Speakers.
