    My tricks for teaching medical English My tricks for teaching medical English Presentation Transcript

    • My tricks for teaching medical English By Virginia Allum
    • A communicative approach • Use of role plays very important • Role plays follow after development of dialogues • Learners hear dialogues via audios or videos (YouTube) • Learners write their own dialogues using mine as a model
    • An audio example • Using Audacity to record the audio of a short dialogue. Here is an example.
    • Use YouTube videos • Initially I used Xtranormal to make cartoon-like videos until Xtranormal ceased to operate • I now use GoAnimate – cartoon characters and a variety of accents
    • Example of a YouTube video
    • My Lego hospital I have set up scenarios using Lego characters which I have converted into hospital and care home characters.
    • Worksheets using the Lego characters
    • Animoto videos • Animoto videos are made using slides with a musical background • Lego scenarios can be uploaded as slides with a text underneath.
    • Use of Facebook • I have set up a dedicated facebook page www.e4nursingandhealthcare.com • Opportunity for learners to exchange ideas and comments. Facebook www.facebook.com/EnglishforNursingandHealthcare
    • Youtube capture • During a recent online teaching course (English for Nurses Pre-Intermediate) I used videocapture to communicate with learners. • The learners also used videocapture to record their homework (completed dialogues) • Videocapture videos were loaded onto YouTube.
    • Individualised websites I use Wix websites to make individual websites for learners. I can upload resources relevant to their needs.
