Pre-Entry Literacy > Speaking and Listening > Speak (or use other means) to communicate > SLc/M6.1

Use phrases with up to three key
a) words
b) signs
c) symbols
to communicate
a) simple ideas b) choices c) events.

Sample learning activities
• Encourage learners to communicate choices in naturally occurring practical
situations, such as what item they would like to buy with their money, where they
would like to sit, etc.
• Repeat the vocabulary of words, signs or symbols consistently. The target
vocabulary should consist of those that the learner often comes across and
which interest the learner. Focus on a few words, signs or symbols at a time and
build a range of activities around them for maximum practice.
Some computer software combines words, images, symbols and signs within the
program as a means of linking them.
