Dictation – June 3rd, 2015
Presenter : Manon Hamel

Manon discusses the benefits associated with dictation and will explore some variations on the traditional approach. Dictation doesn’t work for everything or for everyone, but by looking at this traditional method under a different approach, we can integrate it in our classroom with a little innovation.

Manon is an Intensive ESL teacher in the Québec City area. She has been teaching ESL for 25 years, 13 of which were in Intensive.
