  • 26. An Inuit guide The Arctic Circle A polar bear I looked to see what it was, I kept as still as I could stick your head out sure enough
  • 27. Read it once at normal speed– learners just listen Read again at normal speed, pausing after each sentence – learners make notes NOTE: Learners DO NOT write down the whole sentence
  • 28. In pairs or groups, learners reconstruct the passage NOTE – this does not have to be the same as the original as long as the meaning is conveyed correctly and accurately.
  • 29. Learners compare their version with original. Attention can be drawn to the differences.
  • 30. I was in the Arctic with an Inuit guide, a long way above the Arctic Circle, where I was taking photographs of seals underwater. After a few days the weather turned bad and we decided to spend the night on the ice. Early the next morning I was lying in the tent, just waking up, when I felt something moving against my feet. I looked to see what it was, and I could see the shape of a young polar bear which was playing with my feet through the wall of the tent. I kept as still as I could, and very quietly woke the guide and told him what was happening. He said, ‘Don’t worry, just stick your head out of the tent and it will go away.’ So I said. ‘Well, you stick your head out of the tent.’ And that’s exactly what he did – he stuck his head out of the tent, and sure enough the polar bear went away.

  • 38. Dictate a numbered list of descriptions of words, like this: "No.1 the name of a male pop star; No.2 an adjective describing some food; No. 3 a verb of movement, No.4 a kind of animal" etc. The learners should write down answers to these prompts e.g. "Robbie Williams, salty, swim, kitten" etc. When the lists are finished dictate a short story you have prepared - but with appropriate gaps (into which the learners will write their own previously chosen words) e.g. "A car drove up to the zoo and stopped suddenly and - No.1 - got out. He looked really - No 2 - as he started to - No 3 - towards the No.4's cage." etc. You'll get some very funny stories.
  • 39. Explain that you have a bad cold today (sneeze or cough a bit to prove it!). Tell the class that you're going to do a normal dictation - but if you have to sneeze or cough (and they can't hear a word) they should write any good word that fits the space. For example you might dictate, "Last Thursday Maria decided to have some cough for breakfast." The learners could write the sentence with a word like 'eggs' or 'cornflakes' or 'whisky' instead of the cough.
