Dictation in the 21st century multilingual classroom

++Free for members. REGISTRATION NEEDED – scroll down ++

Do you remember dictation from your primary school days? Does this bring shivers down your spine? Why does dictation have such a bad reputation? 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 develop literacy but also communication skills in the 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 multilingual classroom, from the running dictation to the Dictogloss. By the end of this practical workshop, you will be ready to embrace communicative, learner-centred dications in your own classroom.
