44+ Ways To Integrate Telephone Messages in an Adult ESL Curriculum.
Bello, Tom
An approach to adult English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) teaching that incorporates everyday telephone use skills is described, and a series of related class activities is outlined. The discussion begins with a method and form for assessing student needs and learning styles. Subsequent sections present specific activities in several categories: getting weather information; getting information about tourist destinations or other places; gaining information about legal requirements and services; telling stories; and leaving a message on an answering machine. Each group of activities begins with preliminary exercises and continues with more advanced or complex activities. The final section provides encouragement and guidelines for teaching those wishing to develop their own classroom activities or homework assignments.
