Dictogloss Technique

Dictogloss Dictation

Dictogloss Technique is a classic activity where we are required to reconstruct a text by listening and noting down key words which are then used as a base for reconstruction. We practice listening, reading, writing and speaking by working in cooperative groups and use the vocabulary we have already learned (body parts, fruit, and vegetables) in order to complete the text and make up our own poems.

Special Thank You to Mrs. Tamara Nicolai Itani. We have learned a lot from you and this activity is one of the unforgettable activities that makes dictation active and task based...and brings lots of laughs!

What a great way to use dictoglosses for younger students! I am used to older students where I have to practice making activities more advanced (http://eslcarissa.blogspot.mx/2012/09/5-fun-ways-to-use-dictagloss-in-efl.html) but I'll keep this in mind for the random younger classes I teach!
