Learners can produce their own script making up a story according to their level. Create a puppet show means not only inventing a story, but also creating up characters, studying their way of speaking and their relationships. Speaking as someone other than ourselves, a puppet in this case, means you can say unusual things and communicate in unexpected situations. Hungry puppets go out and about to find food. Real objects and settings can be used to give an authentic touch to vocabulary. This example uses both English and German.
Creating music clips – with guidelines produced by the PopuLLar project. PopuLLar is a very successful European funded project that uses popular music, video and languages to motivate language learning. Secondary students work, mainly autonomously, to select, write, direct, act, video and edit their song productions. Over 65 videos have been produced by students so far and the project continues.
