  1. Thanks for everything you do for us FL teachers! I like this idea, it definitely fits my personality, I like to mess with the students sometimes and I think I’ve built enough trust to try this idea. I’ll give it a try next week, I think

  2. Hi Ben,
    Quick question. When you are searching for cute answers the first week or two in your Circling with Balls Activity, do you allow English responses to your questions?

  3. That’s a judgement call. Personally, I do, but I don’t push it either way. I need the cute answers and my level ones don’t speak the language. It all slips by so fast and no one really notices the English. Blaine doesn’t allow English. It’s how it feels to you. There is no one way to do CI.

  4. Ben, in StLouis I suggested that the woman who received the package went to her mother’s house. You opted to not teach ‘to her mother’s house’ in French and just said that phrase in English. Ever do that with your classes when you get a super cute answer that would require too much or too difficult new vocab?

  5. Yes Grant I am acutely aware that if I were to say “to her mother’s house” in French it would overload their circuits. Cute answers in English work for me. I just want the cute answers and the kids want to understand so I see no problem with this. However, doing this kind of inserting English a lot would cause a disruption in the flow of input, obviously. The brain wouldn’t know what language it was supposed to process in.
