Pictures - Speaking - Spotlight

Uploaded by Serkan Çelik, Bilkent University (Turkey)


This clip takes place during the second part of the lesson where the teacher keeps trying to make her learners talk. The teacher shows all the pictures used with the spotlight tool in the previous part of the course and tries to make learners understand the broader aspect of the pictures and the story related to them. The clip goes on with a text in which learners are expected to find collocations and circle them with the pen tool. The text is based on a story which is related to the pictures shown previously.
