Authentic resources for low-level learners

Click here to download the slides for this session. You can also download these slides as a pdf.

This session will situate the ESOL classroom within its wider environment, examining how learners can develop stronger links with their communities, and communities with the learners.

We will discuss activities such as community mapping, junk modelling and scrapbook making which use basic, cheap, freely available resources. We will also look at ways in which outside space and the external environment, employing all five senses, can help language learning.

Finally, we will explore how learners can use personal objects, cultural artefacts and their ethnic foodstuffs within the ESOL classroom and beyond in order to develop their English language competency.
