3 Easy Steps to Creating Your own

Take Boring Out of Your English Learning Class

Fun Speaking English ClassAre your students bored of:

  • How are You?
  • What is your name?
  • What is your favorite color?
  • How old are you?
  • ABC songs, the number song, animal sound songs?

 

Are your students ready to take it up a notch?

It is easy to create a spoken English course with your young students. Basic ‘picture’ talking is a great tool.

 

1.  Share a picture with your students and have them write down words that are associated Fun English Materialwith the picture.

To make it easy put the children in groups and let them write the words in their native language on a one sheet of paper. (you will take this paper at class end).

If your students like competitions then make it a competition. If this is a contest, you must put a time limit.

 

2.  After the students have created the list of words, have them use a dictionary and write the English words. Now each group has a vocabulary list.  

From this list you can create ‘spoken English classes‘ based on the list of the students created.

 

3.  Take the vocabulary lists and make flash cards. Review new words, practice pronunciation and create games based on the new spoken English material that your students created.(note: you may not want your students to use colors if they know them well enough already)  

If you have created a routine in your lessons let some of your stronger students take your place in leading the spoken English lessons.  They will see when Kikkyboo says: Learn English kids, it can be fun…
