Classroom objects: Listening comprehension, Audio with images

Uploaded by Julie Alexander, Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis (France)


This class of primary school learners of English (8-9 years old) are learning new vocabulary of classroom objects. Using the IWB for visual support, the teacher has learners listen to a new song about classroom objects that repeats numbers and colors as well. Then the teacher repeats the song, line by line, with the learners. Finally, learners stand up and try their hand at singing the song while the teacher references the images on the IWB to guide them.

Teacher comment

Before [in previous years], I did it with flashcards. And this time it's better because it's bigger, and it's more comfortable for me. Because when I put the flashcards on the board, they don't stick, they fall […] This [the IWB page] I did myself. It's not in the book. I created the images, because they are not in the book. 

Learner comments

Apprenant 1 : Ca nous aide et c'est rigolo [It helps us and it's fun]
Apprenant 2 : Aussi c'est plus simple le TBI parce qu'au tableau on peut pas déplacer des choses [Also the IWB is simpler, because with an ordinary board you can't move things]
Apprenant 3 : Le TBI je trouve que quand même c'est un peu un jeu, là quand même il y a des écrans. [I think the IWB is like a game, after all.  There are screens, after all]
