Teaching Material

These sound recordings can be used in Picture-Talk classes, and are designed to help teachers with the language to be used with a set of pictures that you will need to assemble yourselves.

For example, to start with you will need a picture of a man, a woman, a girl and a boy. Then you will need pictures of a bird, a dog, a kangaroo and a fish (or other animals, but 4 different ones) and then of a house, canoe, fire and tree (or other objects) etc.

They are very useful as a way to start to learn to put words together to make phrases and sentences using a method based on Accelerated Second Language Acquisition©™(ASLA) teaching methodology developed by Stephen Neyooxet Greymorning.

If you are planning to use this method, you will probably need to attend a workshop on the method if you have not already done so. It is a great way of learning to put sentences together, but you do need to understand the system properly to use it well.
