Okay boys and girls,

I need dictation strategies you would teach to your students. I'm trying to build a comprehensive list of things that can be "tips" on how to make dictation easier for them from a wide variety of speakers.

Currently my biggest tip is First Letters.

(First pass)
I have a big tip for you
(Second pass)

This works, but there are more learner centric tips out there. I know you guys have taught these to your students so what do you guys teach them?

I wish I knew more about it, or was taught about it in school, but my education said that dictation was the root of all evil... I'm beginning to think my edumacation was wrong about that...
