My very first presenting experience was sharing a couple of activities at a swapshop at a PARK conference, I think in 2009. I went to every one of the PARK conferences while I lived in Brno, so it was lovely to be invited to present this time round, and to be able to do it due to a Polish national holiday 🙂
I did a version of a talk I first presented at IATEFL 2014, sharing activities you can use to train students to understand real-world listening, not just coursebook audio. You can find it here, along with all of the audio from the presentation.
If you’d like to find other resources connected to listening skills, beyond the ones shared in the presentation, I would also recommend:
- Richard Cauldwell’s Speech in Action blog
- My authentic listening with British accents lesson plan
- Matthew Smith’s learner questionnaire to help students think about why a listening was difficult
