Radio remains a powerful tool for English teachers, especially with advance preparation. You can being by mining the wonderful BBC and Voice of America websites for classroom materials and lessons, but you can also go far beyond those two vulnerable sites.
Giving students the power to select their own materials and bring those stories into the classroom gives them a chance to express their individuality and speak more in class. You also get a chance to hear – literally – what your students like and their reflections.
So here is another popular homework worksheet that you can use to gently push your ESL and EFL students to listen to the radio – on the internet or live – and expand their listening skills and vocabulary. Use or lose!
