Station Work - Reading - Eraser

Uploaded by Graham Stanley, British Council Barcelona (Spain)


The videoclip shows learners working as part of a group. First, the learners discuss the answers to the comprehension questions they have responded to, and after deciding that one of the answers needs changing, erase the text and add new text. We then see them ordering the dialogue and finally listening to the dialogue to check their answers.

Teacher comment

"The learners here are working together to solve the task. Unlike the activity in the book, which involved only reading the dialogue, I asked them to put the dialogue in the correct order as a pre-listening task, then check their answers."

"The station work activity went well, especially the IWB part. The learners responded well to the taks, and are obviously engaged here in reading the text. They do partly use their native language (Spanish, Catalan) for instruction to each other, about where to drag and drop some of the sentences. This is something we addressed at the end of the lesson during feedback to the station work."

Learner comments

"I enjoyed this lesson. I felt we had more freedom than usual and I liked moving around, doing different things, as well as usuing the IWB."
