Participant: Marisela Ferrer Caracas-Venezuela Learning Technologies for the Classroom Course British Council-Venezuela (October-December 2011)
Objective: Students will produce a podcast promoting a touristic place in Venezuela to a group of people from another English speaking country. Aimed at 3rd, 4th and 5th year Secondary School Students

Grammar: descriptive adjectives, present tense. Pre-teaching (before listening) Activate schema by showing a video about different famous touristic places around the world to later engage in a socialize discussion; describing, giving opinions, comparing and asking questions about these places. Teaching (while listening) Have students listen to some podcasts about some landmarks around the world. Ask them to take notes as they listen to it; paying attention to the adjectives used to describe the places and to the intonation they use when describing them. Students will write a podcast following the examples they heard about Venezuela. After Listening: Students will create their own digital audio file using Podomatic or Audacity and post it on their blogs. The teacher will facilitate some e-mail addresses of some people who live in the United States (friends of mine) and they will decide where they are going to spend their next vacation based on the descriptions the students made. They will give feedback to the students.
