A lot of the activities described here are intended to involve pupils emotionally, to appeal to their imagination and inventiveness as way of getting through to their intellect.
book contains many sorts of activities
as examples of what we need
to invent, each aimed at mastering some little aspect of the
idiosyncrasy of the foreign language. The basic idea of the tasks is
first to get a particular age group of boys and girls (between 10 and
15) involved in the activities themselves and soon after in the
language as well.
A number of colleagues have made the following contributions to Teaching English to Teens and Preteens: Rose-Marie Hauf on ‘walking’ the English tenses; Dr Christoph Jaffke on the first three years of aural-oral teaching; Robert Sim on teaching English through classroom plays; and Dorothee von Winterfeldt on why we cannot do without grammar
