Charles,

Sorry for being so late in reply! I'm swamped and I'll be working right through the holidays it seems. But happily, madly so :)

Well, with a tired bunch, you'll have to do a lot of "active" things. That isn't so easy with listening but I'd take the view that listening can also be active. It isn't always just listen - what did you hear? Write it down. Check.

One good way is to use stories. Look under Resources Share here and you'll find lots of leveled readers.(look under that category or just search in our search engine at the top of the page). Download / print. Students have to read and prepare 3-5 questions for post reading. They read in small groups/listen and answer the questions together. You'll have to model as a full class. A kind of Extensive reading focus where students read at a level where there isn't much difficulty. Pick books that are very easy for them!

Also try our Listening page. Lots of stuff there. You can try the True Stories. Download and printout the ppts (File - print preview - print ) to give to students for exercises. Lots more there, including dialogues. However, I'd really go for the dialogues I made. very professional. Click and play. Students listen, fill in the blanks. Then practice/perform as a group.

I hope this helps you out with some ideas! Cheers, Merry Christmas,

David
