Use “Circle Map” to organise what you want to talk


This ‘Circle Map’ is originally used in writing narrative. But i think it also works well to prepare topic-talking/speaking, especially for FL learners who are not able to talk or express┬ámore fluently in a foreign language.

In the middle of circle, the topic is given, then according to this topic, write down related events which impressed you more, then give a bit more details for each event you listed on the map, (also called “Tell Me More”).

  1. I like this strategy, Emilie. I can also see how students with more language ability could create another outer circle and begin listing more details to describe each of the words in the previous circle. Thanks for sharing!
