Description

Oral activities for new speakers of English

EAL teacher Helen McKessar along with drama specialist Susan Battye have teamed up to develop this two-book photocopiable series called Reading Dialogues. Their collaboration comes from the knowledge that many students who are learning English find speaking aloud in front of others extremely difficult. The series provides opportunities for students to tackle this sometimes fraught area in a structured and meaningful way.

Each book in the Reading Dialogues series contains a series of ‘dialogues’ or short plays which are intended to be read aloud in small groups, and then discussed. The dialogues are tailored to different language levels in both books and are interesting, challenging and above all, fun.

Each dialogue starts with a series of pre-reading activities which will prepare students for the vocabulary ahead. Dialogues are followed by a range of post-reading activities which can be used to check comprehension, practise vocabulary in other language mediums, recognise the importance of colloquialisms and idioms in spoken English, and make points about the formal structure of the language.
