FC Listening: Exercise

In-Class Listening Activity

Select a listening passage (3-4 minutes) in the language you teach or in a language you’ve studied. Use an authentic piece of listening (dialogue, commercial, weather broadcast, news report, etc.).

Design a class listening activity for a regular 50-minute class session. Your plan should indicate the number of times students will listen to the activity and explain (in some detail) any pre-listening, while-listening, intensive listening, and post-listening tasks you want the students to do.


Here are two examples of listening activities the language teachers developed and presented in class.
