  26. 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. 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. 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. 29. Learners compare their version with original. Attention can be drawn to the differences.
  30. 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. 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. 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.
