Dictation a relic from bygone era or a versatile activity?

Are your memories of dictation linked to boring, uncommunicative language lessons where the emphasis was purely on linguistic accuracy? Well, let’s think again. We are going to look at a range of activities linked to dictation, which will have your students practising all four skills, as well as grammar and vocabulary.  Let’s make their memories of classroom dictations ones which are linked to fun, communicative language lessons!
