Lesson Transcript
Instructor: Yolanda Reinoso Barzallo

Yolanda holds a CELTA Cambridge, a Juris Doctorate, and a Master of Public Administration. She is a published author of fiction in Spanish.

This lesson gives you some ideas for activities to use with auditory learners. The activities are based on listening and speaking skills, ideal for many auditory learners.

The Wonder of Listening

The wonder of an auditory learner resides in their ability to retain the information you impart in an oral manner. In other words - auditory learners love to listen! In addition, they love using their own voices to speak. Most classes have a good number of auditory learners who will thrive if you present activities that require listening to the content you want to teach.

Reading Aloud

Your own voice is a powerful tool that can be used in favor of auditory learners. One way to use this tool is to ask your students about the meaning of the content-specific vocabulary after you introduce a new topic. Once the introduction and vocabulary are clear, read aloud the respective content or ask your students to do so. Given that this activity is based on listening, you will want to check for comprehension. An ideal activity to follow a session of reading aloud is asking 10-12 follow-up questions in order to ensure your students understand the new topic.

You can end this lesson by reinforcing the acquired knowledge through group discussion. Have your students work in groups of three or four and give them a question to discuss that relates to the content. This question could elicit their opinion on the topic, if appropriate. At the end, a student representative of the group can tell the entire class about the group's discussion.
