Skills Circuits
Hi all
This fantabulous activity appears in a BBC British Council newsletter:
Skills circuits are a fun way to review language. They also provide a change to coursebook activities allowing learners to work together to recycle grammar or vocabulary and share knowledge. They require careful planning of both materials used in the circuit and attention to the timing of the activity itself.

Thanks for sharing this, Jayho. I have tried something like this already and it works wonders, but it is true - it really has to be planned ahead well. Timing is everything in such an activity, and one has to be flexible to cut sth short if you see it should be or give more time for sth if necessary. This is why preparation is important. However, the effect is amazing!

Thanks, Jayho, for mentioning it! I am subscribed to the site and their news letter, but it seems like there �s never enough time to explore what �s out there. However, every time you mention something on the forum, I actually follow it through and find it very useful.
