How To Use the Generator

I’ve created this Generator to serve as a springboard for quick language activity ideas that can be further improved, made more creative, and used in the classroom. Like any AI-generated content for teaching and learning, the generated activities should be teacher-mediated. In other words, the Generator will assist you in generating ideas, but it’s up to you to transform these ideas into impactful activities for your students. 

  • Enter the number of activities you’d like to generate. I recommend starting small, perhaps with 2 or 3 activities.
  • Provide the details to generate activities that suit your context, including Skills (e.g., speaking, writing, etc.), Language focus (grammar or vocabulary), Topic (e.g., traveling), Proficiency level (e.g., pre-intermediate, advanced, etc.), and Students’ interests (e.g., TikTok videos). In most cases, the activities generated by the Generator should be quick, lasting about 5-15 minutes, and require minimal resources.
  • Choose the activity that appeals to you the most or mix and match multiple activities, then add your own creative touch to make them even better.
