"QualityTime-ESL Podcasts" - Description and complete list below

“QualityTime-ESL podcasts” (cf. the whole list below) are recordings of oral exercises/drills that are "interactive", i.e. they will make you speak English! As a result you will improve your spoken English dramatically. They will help you train your proficiency in using …

  • tenses
  • adjectives
  • articles
  • defective verbs
  • gerunds
  • phrasal verbs
  • and many more aspects of essential English grammar.

The first podcasts in the "QT-ESL" series are relatively easy and intended for students who STILL FEEL BLOCKED when trying to speak English. But the structures soon become more complex. We review correct usage and work on pronunciation at the same time. "QT-ESL" podcasts are designed for both students working on their own and teachers looking for oral exercises/drills that focus on essential knowledge of English grammar to be used in class, in language labs or with MP3 players. SELF-TESTS are available after every five episodes.

Using the scripts as pair work in the classroom

If the podcasts are used as homework, some of the weaker learners may wish to consult the scripts. Or you may decide to assign the worksheets. In the classroom the scripts can be used effectively for pair work to see if the students have practiced enough on their own. Just hand out one script to each pair of students. One student will be reading from the script and the other will be responding to the stimuli. The students doing the exercises orally must not look at the script. They will be guided orally by their respective partners until they get the right answer. This is great as a warm-up activity and has everyone speaking instantly.
