Clothing: using sound and images to reinforce vocabularyUploaded by Emily Hillier, Cardiff Metropolitan University (UK)
This video clip is taken from the context of a lesson whereby learners are learning the vocabulary for different items of clothing in Welsh. In this clip a group of learners were asked to complete a series of short activities and this was the first one. In this video clip the teacher plays an audio of someone saying what they like to wear ('I like wearing'.../'Dw'in hoffi gwisgo ...'). The learners were required to listen to the audio and look at the various images to see which image matched the spoken sentence.

There was the stimulus of different images but there was a selection of images so they had to choose the right one and work it out for themselves rather than there just being an image there to reinforce the vocabulary. They had to make the right choice.
I suppose you could have done [the activity] practically but I think the IWB was more appropriate as it gave them instant feedback but in a subtle way and it does engage them well.
I think it’s good for them to hear welsh being spoken by people other than myself and ... it was a different voice so they are hearing a difference sentence pattern aswell. Although the main focus is them picking up the main vocabulary, they are hearing a different sentence pattern again and they’re listening and responding to it so I think it shows a good absorption of the language.
It helps because it’s got sounds on and we can play games on there because it’s a whiteboard.
I like the whiteboard because there's a green [tick] when you get it right and there's a red [cross] if you get it wrong.
The best thing about the whiteboard is learning the sounds.
