Tarnai Gábor: Breaking news

In this class, L2 learners read different news items from around the globe. (In the case of advanced learners, Ls should compile their news items.) Afterwards, they write headlines for them. Ls do creative thinking exercises to practice diverse registers. Then they produce TV newsreels with anchors, cameramen, reporters and interviewees. In fact, they build their own studios and accumulate ideas to produce not only an oral but also a graphic representation of the particular news item. Finally, they show their project to the class while the others evaluate the recorded material. Since listening to spoken English can easily be done by using the Direct Method, this method is significantly used here with the essential support from audio-visual input from Internet based excerpts.
