This is the Text alone.
You may have noticed that this is Pro Lingua's fourth book of dictations by our good friends Cathy Sadow and Judy DeFilippo. Obviously, there is something about the way they create dictation materials that thousands of teachers have found very useful.
And you tell us the books are also really teacher and student friendly.
Basic Dictations, however, is a little different in three significant ways.
* As the title suggests, this is the easiest book of the four. It can be used
with launched beginners and intermediates. It can even be used
selectively with advanced students.
* As a glance at the topics (Contents) will reveal, it is aimed at the newcomer -
young adult or adult. Not only are the students improving their
English, they are also learning more about how to get around in
their new country and culture.
* The book is photocopyable. With 58 lessons in the collection, you may prefer
photocopying, picking and choosing lessons that are most relevant
to your students. However, the practical information on aspects of
everyday life is wide-ranging and interesting, and your students
will benefit from the fun and varied language practice in every
lesson. Most lessons are only two pages long, containing a short dictation,
a discussion, and a couple of informative, fast-moving activities.
As with the other books, there are four kinds of dictations: partial, pair, prediction, and dictogloss. And scattered throughout the book there are also 18 listening activities - conversations and short narrations. All of the dictations and the listening tasks are available on a CD. Every lesson deals with vocabulary and discussion.
The 58 lessons are organized under these topic headings:
Friends and Families * Numbers * Time
* Around Town * Food * Health * Work
