Pre-Listening - Station Work - Drag and DropUploaded by Graham Stanley, British Council Barcelona (Spain)
The learners in this videoclip discuss the task together and read a written dialogue which they have to put in order. After talking about what has to be done and starting to do the task, they listen to the beginning of the task. This listening task has been adapted from the coursebook Voices 4 (Unit 2 - page 27). The original listening is in order in the book, but the learners here have to put the dialogue in the correct order and then decide which book the two friends in the activity have decided to borrow from the library.

"I chose this clip because I think it shows the learners being involved in a pre-listening task, working independently using the IWB while I was outside the classroom helping another group involved in an activity on another station. The learners help each other decide what has to be done and then start to listen to the recording in order to complete the task."
"I like the freedom we had in this class. The teacher left us to work together and decide on the answers. We did this without help, although we could ask for help if we wanted to."
