Listening- Audioboo

This is a short recording of a conversation that the students could use as a model for their own conversations in or outside of class. I teach Foundations 1 English to students who are learning the basics of English. First, we would have to study new vocabulary for types of movies and the students would have to learn to write and respond to questions in the simple present tense. After some practice, they could listen to this conversation and use it to guide them in creating their own role-plays. I would want the students to focus on using proper sentence structure, but also on speaking clearly and expressively. The students could even record their conversations and listen to them, so that they could make changes and improve their speaking skills before they have a chance to present in front of the class. Recording and practicing would allow them to develop confidence and reduce anxiety.
