Combination Dictation/ Listening

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes


This activity combines two well known exercises.

Running dictation, where a student must memorise and then dictate a phrase to the second student who writes it down and then reads the next line and recites it to the third student and so on.

If this activity is done with the jumbled up lines for a song, it then provides students with the entire set of lyrics that they then cut up before reassembling when listening to the song.

This provides extra incentive to get the dictated messages correct and also spares the teacher the laborious task of cutting up set after set of song lyrics.
