ESL Games: Running Dictation

15-30 minutes Pairs or small groups Remember words and phrases and dictate them to your partner

  • Use pictures for children who can’t spell and have them draw the picture instead of writing the words
  • Use multiple sentences for more advanced students
  • Place
    sentences around the room and have each group member do one each.
  • Groups have to put the sentences into the right order before turning in the paper
  1. Break students up into groups of 3-4, or pairs for small classes
  2. Put one sentence on a piece of paper for each team
  3. One leader from each team goes to the board and tries to remember their sentence
  4. The leader returns to their group and dictates the sentence while team members write it down
  5. First team to finish correctly gets a point
  6. Change words/sentences and switch leaders

  1. Please let me know if you’re looking for a
    writer for your site. You have some really great posts and
    I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some
    material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.

    Please shoot me an email if interested. Kudos! 0mniartist asmr

  3. Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused
    .. Any ideas? Cheers!

    You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you

    many years. Great stuff, just excellent!

    do so! Your writing style has been surprised me.
    Thanks, very nice post.
