Todos nós nascemos equipados para aprender um idioma. Algumas pessoas demoram mais para aprender, mas em algum momento elas aprendem. Nós temos diferentes tipos de inteligência, um bom professor vai assegurar-se de que o método utilizado dê, a todos os tipos de aprendizes, as chances necessárias de aprender do seu jeito próprio. Algumas pessoas são do tipo visual verbal (aprendem lendo), algumas são do tipo não-verbal/pictórico (aprendem melhor a partir de diagramas e fluxogramas, imagens), algumas são auditivas (aprendem ouvindo), algumas são cinestésicas (aprendem fazendo), essas pessoas têm que fazer alguma coisa enquanto estão estudando, pode ser um desenho ou fazendo anotações. Na verdade estas pessoas são aquelas que aprendem fazendo as coisas, elas saem montando o armário, ao invés de ler as instruções antes. O método tradicional de aprendizado de idiomas privilegia um tipo em detrimento do outro. Por isso alguns alunos são rotulados como maus alunos, ou seja, aqueles “que não têm jeito pra línguas. E agora... QUAL É SEU TIPO?

Passing pens

Coloured pencils (bird's eye)
All students require to play this game is one pen or pencil each. If you can, push the furniture to the side of the room and have everyone stand in the middle holding their pen. I normally join in the game and demonstrate it at the beginning.

Think of a vocabulary item you have recently introduced to the class. For example, we have looked at verb + noun combinations like “make a sacrifice” or “overcome your shyness”. Your pen ‘becomes’ that vocabulary item. Every student thinks of  a vocabulary item but does not say it yet (this is important!)
As an example, pass your pen (A) to a student and say your words. They should give you their pen (B) and say their item. Then repeat this with another student, giving them your new pen (B), with them giving you their pen (C).
Generally this is enough for my students to get the idea, but you could continue to repeat the demonstration if they are having trouble. When they understand how the swapping works, return the pens to their original owners and ask everyone to think of a new vocabulary item.
Everyone mingles, swapping pens and passing on their vocabulary items. If someone forgets the item attached to the pen they have (very easy to do!), they should just pick something they know is going round and continue the game. If they get their own pen with a different item attached to it, they shouldn’t change it back to their original phrase, but should pass on what they got. They can swap with the same person more than once, as it will be with different pens.
After a few minutes stop the mingle, and get everyone to stand in a circle with the last pen they got.
Starting with the pen you have (if you joined in), tell the students the phrase you ‘received’ with it. Then find out whose pen it is and what phrase they attached to it at the start of the game.If the two are the same, give the class a point. If they are different, no point. Continue round the circle, giving one point for every pen which finished with the same phrase attached to it.
Give the pens back to their original owners, everyone thinks of new collocations and repeat the game. As a class, they shold try to get more points by keeping pens with the same vocabulary items when passing them on.
It’s loud, fun and quite challenging!
