Most students do not read any more, due to various reasons. To begin with, some students find reading difficult. Furthermore, students are not sure of what to read. Finally, films and T.V shows have replaced books. Teachers could motivate students to read through incorporating audiobooks in ELT classes. Audiobooks are suitable for children, young learners and learners with additional needs. This talk will explore different ways of exploiting audiobooks in ELT classes. At the end of the talk, attendees will learn how to design an activity where students create play/skit after listening and perform them to the class.
