The students also watched “Story Box”. The “Story Box” showed a story of Korean traditional folktale using key expressions. The story repetitively mentioned, “What time is it?” When they finished watching the clip, the teacher again clicked the repeat button to have them practice the dialogues. First, they practiced as a whole, then with their partners. When they were done practicing, they volunteered a short scene from the “Story Box” without looking at the script on the screen.
4. Speaking Activity – What time is it Mr. Wolf? (15min.) – The teacher introduced the game to students with short video, and the students immediately grasped the idea because there was a similar game in Korean culture. However, the teacher told them there are many variations to this game, so students should listen carefully to her instruction. Like the traditional Mr.Wolf game in Korea, the teacher explained that there is one wolf who will be standing at the back of the room facing the wall while other students will be standing at the front of the room facing the wolf. When they start the game, other students need to shout their key expression which is “What time is it?” then, the wolf will randomly choose a time and tell “It’s ______ O’clock.” For example, when the wolf says, “It’s five O’clock” the students need to take five steps forward. When they got to wolf close enough, the wolf will shout, “It’s dinner time!” and try to catch one of them to be the wolf again.
The students loved role-playing the dialogues. They were able to memorize the script perfectly after practicing speaking as a class couple times. Most students performed without having their scripts on their hands. The students were very competitive during the speaking activity. Some students were only interested in winning, so they ended up not reading the full sentences. These students were also stressed when the strips were given to students with lower English
