Remember the post about running dictation? Well this time, you are going to read something about drawing dictation. This type of dictation is fairly simple and especially appropriate for young learners. The deal is that your students don't have to write down everything you say, but instead they have to draw it. I'm sure you can see all the advantages of this kind of dictation for young learners - first one being the fact that they might not be able to write just yet, so this way you can check their understanding of some words or simple sentences.
For older and more advanced students, you can describe, let's say, a room and they can draw it - extremely useful for prepositions.
Have you ever done this kind of dictation? Was it more successful with younger or older learners?
