    Default Handicapped Listening Activity

    Hi All,

    This is my first post on this forum. I would like to know how would you conduct a listening activity in a class of 50 students when you don't have any audio facility in that class. I termed it as Handicapped Listening activity. I'm gone fed up of reading passages to them and get them to answer questions to understand if they actually listened to it or not.

    Is there something that one of you do with out an audio - No technology available to support at all...

    Please Help

    Daniel

    You can vary the exercises and activities, but somehow they're going to have to listen to the text. How advanced are they?

    In the same room at the same time? Or a basic class of 50 and an intermediate class of 50 who you teach separately?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    In that case, unless you can arrange something, then you will be providing the voice, so how about trying to change the types of exercises used? Do you have access to a photocopier?
