Listening round/Round-robin

A Listening round or Round-Robin is a technique to ensure that all students have a voice and that students who might otherwise monopolise a conversation do not limit anyone else's opportunities to participate.

In a Listening round, students share their ideas in a group. Each participant has a turn to offer her or his answer. Nobody should interrupt the person who has the floor. Agreement, disagreement or surprise can only be communicated kinaesthetically. Nobody can pass. If a participant's answer is similar to or the same as prior ones, the person has to start by acknowledging peers who had similar ideas.

A Listening round provides opportunities for noticing and hearing new language for English language learners. It gives opportunities for forced language output for all students.
