Description:Elicitation session by Saskia with three students at the Junior Secondary School. First, some body part terms were elicited. Then the children described the 'run, walk, crawl, climb' videos. Finally the children interviewed each other about activities, one of them gave a recipe and they each described the routes to their houses. The session has been audio recorded and annotated in ELAN. First, Saskia asks the children for words for some objects and some parts of the body, by asking in Avatime 'what is this?'. Then, she shows the children the 'run walk crawl climb' videos. This is a set of videos which show mainly moving animals and some moving people. After each video Saskia asked the children in Avatime 'what happened'. Then she asked Ernest to interview the other two about what they did yesterday, what they are going to do tomorrow and what they want to do in the future. Charity also gave a recipe. Finally, each of the children gave directions to their houses. Avatime was used mostly, but Saskia sometimes used English to explain something and Ernest translated some of the things the other two children said into English for Saskia. Charity, Ernest and Elvis are the consultants in this session, which was led by Saskia. Their responses to the run_walk_crawl_climb video clips were annotated by Saskia. The interviews were transcribed and translated by Da Adzo and Rebecca.
