PrAACtical Conversation about the Olympics
It’s not too early to begin. It seems that everyone is talking about the London 2012 Olympics. The Olympic conversation is an interesting teaching and learning platform for almost any communication and language goals. It is fun, educational, and most importantly, most smaller and larger ‘communities’ will have Olympic images, videos, television shows, and conversation. There will soon be Olympic immersion. You can TALK and TEACH before the Olympics start, while they are happening, and even after they are over. It is easy to include ALL learners at ALL levels with these free resources that do the time-consuming preparation work for you. Just use your language facilitation strategies and have fun!
**Bonus- we often also use these resources for home programming because our clinic is closed during the time that the Olympics are happening. We begin the topic in July together and also give the resources to families so they can have fun talking about the Olympics in August while the event is happening, and we can summarize the conversation ALL together in September.
