ESOL E2 Listening development: Asking where things are (travel)

This resource is based on the DfES ESOL Skills for Life E2 recording 'Asking where things are'. It gives exam practice questions (C&G style) in the first section and in the second section an activity to enable learners to tune in to the sounds of English. The first section can be completed in class and the second at home or the whole sheet can be given for homework. Listening development at home enables learners to listen as often as they wish and tune in until they hear the text more clearly.

Learners can use a phone, tablet or computer to log in to a Padlet page given on the worksheet. The QR code is an easy way to access the page on a phone using a QR code app or an iPhone camera, scanning the code. The password is: esol. The recording is in the E2 section. Scroll down to find the recording that corresponds with the worksheet.

The next lesson can involve listening again briefly, correcting answers  and dealing with any issues arising with words it was difficult to catch or sound/letter correspondence which proved tricky. It can also be good for learners to listen again and read the tape script simultaneously.
