Podcasts in English Teaching
I have given several workshops about "Using Podcasts in English Language Teaching" for TESOL France in 2011 and TESOL Spain in 2012. I explain how to get students to listen to podcasts that will improve both listening and speaking skills. I give step-by-step instructions about finding and using podcasts. With the slides/pictures in the PDF below you will be able to use the iTunes platform effectively.
Here is a shorter version in PowerPoint of the slide-show to use with your students when you are talking about podcasts. In the article I suggest a class strategy.
If you are interested in the type of dynamic teaching I favor—where the students do most of the speaking—you can read QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book available on a DVD (complete version €29) or in a download (lighter version €14.99). To purchase our products (book/film/packs with podcast scripts, worksheets and student booklets) go to the store.
Any teacher can become a "dynamic" teacher by using these methods.
