How to use games
the learners’ experiences
When my learners are at an intermediate level or higher I like to introduce the topic of computer games at the beginning of a class. I do this by dictating questions in chunks. These questions are intended to encourage communication between learners during a lesser controlled stage of the class. The chunking of the language is intended to provide authentic connected speech elements in easy to handle chunks. Below are some of the questions I dictate with the chunks marked with a '/'.
