Thought-provoking, creative and colourful! Learners and teachers reflect on what English words and expressions they like and dislike then students create a word collage.
An extract from the resource:
Learning a foreign language is an affective act as much as a cognitive one and so this activity will help you understand more about your students’ feelings towards English vocabulary and structure. It will also draw their attention to sounds, words and expressions in English and help them reflect on the aspects of English that they particularly like, dislike, find difficult and which are similar to or different from other languages they know.
Students close their eyes and try to visualise ‘English’.
After 30 seconds, discuss what came to mind. Were the images which came into their minds positive, negative or neutral? Did they picture words and phrases? Did they picture people? Did they think of a particular place or situation?
Now invite the students to discuss or write down three to five English words and phrases that they like and explain why.
