Do you remember dictation from your primary school days? Does this bring back good or bad memories?
In this workshop, we will share our experiences and views on dictation, and we will discuss how dictation has changed over the years and is now a wonderful tool to use in the communicative classroom. We will explore the various purposes and uses of dictation, and we will look at different types of activities that can be used in the modern ESL classroom, from the running dictation to the Dictogloss.
By the end of this practical workshop, you will be ready to use different types of student-centred dictation activities in your classroom.

Preparing for the Workshop
Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.
At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you.
Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.
You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum.
The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world.
After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries
This workshop has the following session(s). When all Sessions are completed, you will be presented with a PDF certificate. Click on the link below to access the session content.

Dictation in the ESL Classroom
Excellent! A most enjoyable masterclass with a broad perspective on how to use dictation in the classroom and make it engaging for the students, productive and fun. The workshop just flew by. Sophie engages you and makes you aware of the manyfold ways there are to make dictation a regular in the ESL lessons. I thoroughly recommend this workshop. Thank you Sophie.
