Language practice activities

watch video about practising language activities

Practice activities are essential to help learners try out new language, to aid retention and develop their communicative competence, or ability to communicate and be understood. Learners may not have the opportunity (or the motivation!) to practise outside the classroom, making it even more vital that you provide sufficient practice in class.

Watch the video of two classroom activities to practise language, one with primary and one with secondary learners.

As you watch, consider these questions:

  • What language points are the learners practising in each case?
  • Do you (or could you) use these activities with your learners?
  • What other practice activities would you suggest for this language?
