Secondary English revealing an imageUploaded by Graham Stanley, British Council Barcelona (Spain)
An image of a videogame (Hetherdale - http://www.bubblebox.com/play/adventure/1747.htm) has been covered by annotations and the teacher slowly erases the cover to reveal the image while the learners guess what the images are of. As more of the image is revealed, the learners become more animated. The teacher corrects pronunciation and grammar by repetition and asking questions during this process.

"This was the warmer - I wanted to introduce the videogame, get the learners interested in it and also start to focus upon some of the vocabulary that the learners needed to be able to do the task that followed - I think using the hide and reveal tool is a good way of encouraging speaking in class."
"I enjoyed today's class and now want to go home and play the video game that was shown to us."
