Let Your Students Talk and Teach.
A variety of ideas for classroom second language learning activities are presented. Most are for the intermediate level, but some beginning and advanced level activities are included. Two elements are common to all of them: regard for the cultural element in the language and maintenance of a low-risk, non-intimidating classroom atmosphere. The activities include playing question games, creating stories from pictures, reading maps, labelling floor plans, describing school supplies, assembling a family album, conducting role plays, transcribing short presentations, playing question-and-answer relays and matching games, doing description and definition exercises, playing word association games, holding press conferences and debates, constructing and reconstructing stories and news articles, and writing journals. Some commercially-available materials are also described, and a selected bibliography is included. (MSE)
