Using a text: Out of class activities

Using a text: Out of class activities

These are activities which involve the learners using English outside the English class after a lesson based on a Premier skills text.

Here's an example of an out-of-class activity for the text Beginners guide.

1. Watch a Premier League game on tv or read about one on the web or in a newspaper.

2. Tell a partner about the game you watched or read about. 

Procedure 

Procedure for setting the activities

1. Set activities which get students to look for English outside the classroom. These could involve interviewing people, watching tv, accessing the internet, reading newspapers and magazines, going to football matches, playing football, talking to friends in English social clubs etc.

2. Give students help at first by referring them to specific websites, newspapers, magazines etc.

 

Procedure for using the activities

1. You could occasionally get the students to report informally on their out of class activities. But don’t force them to write anything or to do any assessed tasks as this could interfere with the objective of stimulating them to find and use English outside class for enjoyment.

2. You could sometimes do one of the out of class activities yourself and then report to the students about what you did and what you found.

Over to you: Tell us what you think

What do you think of this activity?
Would it work with your students?
Can you think of a way to use it differently or make it better?

The activities should appeal to the students.
It's important know the hobbies of each student to association with English. Combination: hobbies + English

It is a great activity
It would work with my students
While I was teaching after high school, my students and I go for field walks and they turn to familiarise themselves with the environment. They are good at asking questions out of the class and express themselves without any tension of a classroom situation

I'm totally agree with this method, because I personally face with the same problem...
The Web is one of the solutions to be in touch with English...
