  2. 2. Audio-lingual This type of speakingdrill isgood for practicing very specific grammar targets or vocabulary. Itcan get boring, so only use in shortbursts of 5-10 minutes. Try to use different levels of volume, emotions, or speeds when doingit to keep students engaged and actively listening. Audio-lingual drillsaregood warm up for more challenging,participation stylespeaking activities. Jazz Chants http://www.onestopenglish.com/skills/listening/jazz-chants/ Help students hear the rhythm and stress of natural English. It´s fun for students of all ages. Encourage students to clap and singalong.You can repeat these Jazz Chants for a few days,or review them after some time has passed. Search onlinefor ¨Carolyn GrahamJazz Chants¨ or simply,“English Jazz Chants” for more information. Jigsaw These can be as free or as strictas you want. For example, ask students to make groups and simply chatabouta few set topics and then break them into different groups to sharewhat they chatted about. It can also be very structured, with introductory readings and test review. Putting students of different levels into the same groups can help the lower level students understand the topic and help the higher level students practicesummarizingand explainingskills. The groups can range in sizefrom 3-6.
