Learn how to use cloze activities in the ESL classroom

Cloze activities can be used in a number of ways. Here I am using them to help students answer some questions. This will help them formulate sentences correctly. Here's an example.

Question: "Where are Mike, Billy and Andrew from?"

Answer: "They are from ____, _____, and _____."

This gives them some clue to the answer, but not the whole thing. After they have written these answers down you can review them. Have one student read the question and the other the answer.

"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience" - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120
