For a dictocomp task, read out, twice, at normal speed, some information about a class timetable. During your first reading, just get the students to listen. During the second reading, pause between the sentences so that students can jot down some notes (in English, in te reo Māori, or in both languages). Then get them to use their notes to construct the timetable on the whiteboard, or on a template on a computer, by working in small groups.

In this dictocomp, you could deliberately focus on a particular sentence pattern, for example, “Ko ______” to describe the subjects in the timetable, for example:

Maori vocabulary

English translation

Ko te pūtaiao. It’s science.
