  • 3442. Making Our Students Think!

    We teachers have to be careful: we may be too much over-focused on teaching strategies (this is, how to teach) and somehow forget to make our students think, ponder, reason, discern, meditate.  I mean, of course we have for example to teach a second or foreign language but our students also have to learn how to think.  As well we should teach ...

  • 3294. Communication, Communication, Communication!

     I’m somehow starting some nice lessons with other retired people, at another center. I’m trying to create an atmosphere of immersion, where English is the spoken language, both for the lower-level students and for the more advanced ones. However I’m noticing some lack of communication with some students in both groups, whilst most of the ...

  • 3177. Communication Has Been Set!

     I can tell you all of you that for setting a communicative approach to my English-language lessons I foster communication between my students and me, and among themselves. Also I foster discussions. Discussions are great for improving my students’ communicative competence. We exploit texts I hand them out. Even from a small point inside one of ...

  • 3091. Discussions as Something so Educative

     I’ve told you we teachers have to make our students think and engage their brains in intellectual activities. And once else that’s okay I guess. We can teach our students, and help them learn superior intellectual activities, such as plan their work and their learning process up to some extent, synthesize, schedule their activities and free ...

  • 3032. A Friendly Atmosphere in the Classroom

     Yesterday I wrote that it’d be okay we second or foreign language teachers would speak in the language we’re teaching to our dear students, and it’s so; and also I said that I usually speak in English to my Spanish students, before and after the lesson. But think that communication among people is the first priority for us human people, and for ...

  • 3023. Teaching Our Students to Have Creativity

     Something characteristic and peculiar only of human people is they can think and express and utter the ideas they have. In other words they can communicate with one another, they can speak with other people. And that precise principle must be carried out in our classrooms: we have to make our students think and express their ideas, their ...

  • 2816. Something Practical about Testing for Today

     The point is learning and acquiring English, right? Yet also it was important to pass the exams and tests... When I taught in Jaén, north of Granada, where I now live, I included one question of previous past units in those tests, so if the kid passed the last unit test, he updated his pass level. This question of the tests was for example to ...

  • 2385. Something Useful When Giving a Speech

    The importance of silence.  José Ballesteros, in his book about speeches and communication, says that silence can be a part of a speech, for example at a parents meeting in the school, one of those meetings along the academic year, for instance when the oldest students (2nd of high secondary education) finish their stance at the school.  These ...

  • 2204. How adults can learn and acquire a language

    Adult learners of English or any other language can perfectly learn and even acquire the target language.  They have potentials that young learners may not have, like self-discipline and organizing their learning and planning it.  So they have the cognitive and metacognitive resources to learn and acquire. Moreover they have an easy capability ...

  • 1997. For learning English? Immersion

    I try there be immersion in my classes of English. From the very beginning. And not only the activities but also the regular conducting of the class.  Perhaps something needs more explaining: then I use other ways of saying the same message: writing cognates on the whiteboard (similar words to the ones in our mother language, like “presentation” ...
