Every year I’m delighted to go back to my Alma Mater, the University of Nevada, Reno, and “guest lecture” at the Foreign Language Methods Class. I love chatting about about language acquisition and sharing activities and strategies that illustrate the power of Comprehensible Input to future language teachers.
If you’re near a University and have some CI experience, go! Reach out to the method’s professor! Offer to teach a class! Give these future teachers a taste of CI! Chances are they came from traditional language classes…show them that their language classes can be more than grammar drills and vocab memorization.
Here’s the power point I use and make available to students. I wanted to give them a little theory and lots of activities to try out. If you’re looking for a smattering of CI fun things, you might find it useful as well.
