Free ESL Lesson Worksheet – Running Dictation – Elementary

Free ESL Lessons Free pdf exercisesRunning Dictation

A running dictation exercise for beginners to help improve their grammar, spelling, punctuation and understanding of sentence structure.

This is a pair activity involving a little bit of physical exercise. Cut up the worksheet and tape half of each set outside the classroom. The students have to run out to read the worksheet, and then run back to their partner to dictate as much as they can remember. When the first students have finished, tape the second half outside for the other student in the pair. It’s a lot of fun in a group class as a race, with students running in and out and bumping into each other.
