  • 3444. More on Communication in the Classroom

    I’ve been thinking. If I make somebody talk, which is the case with the one-to-one classes I’m teaching lately, and that person, or that class of students, actually speak, all the thing is gotten!  I mean, I implement a communicative approach to teaching English. If the students actually speak, all the work has been achieved, or nearly all.  Also ...

  • 3215. Our Students as Able to Communicate Naturally

     We second or foreign language teachers must help our students reach communicative competences. In that target language. We don’t confine our work to teaching language facts but we target our students’ communicative skills. We target our energies toward our students would get those abilities to communicate with other people. So we do not just ...

  • 3157. When Big Exams Are Around the Corner...

     Exam and test contents should not be a surprise for our students, something unexpected. Exams and tests should assess and evaluate our students’ knowledge and practical competences. I’m focusing on English as a foreign language, but what I’m saying could be useful for other school subjects. Okay then, our exams and tests should, above all, ...

  • 3096. My Students Are Eager to Participate!

     I’ve just planned one of my lessons, for next Wednesday. And I’ve thought about what grammar patterns my students need to practice more, and about their growing communicative competence. I presume that it’s sound to assess the class-group globally and infer what they need to practice more. I would say there are two strong points about my ...

  • 3027. Are Our Students Free to Learn?

     Without our students’ responsibility we cannot educate. Responsibility is when the student can response about his behavior – “responsibility” and “response” have the same Latin root, as you can observe. He’s free, and subsequently responsible of his conducting, behavior and learning. “Subsequently” not in time but at the same time he’s free. And ...

  • 3001. Communication from The First Class-Day!

     Today I implemented the placement test for our new adult students, for me to find out about their level of English, and place them into the corresponding group-class. Also there were veteran adult students for whom I wanted to assess their level after the long summer break. What I intend to explain and remark here on this post is that the main ...

  • 2972. Our Work Has The Beauty of Sport

     Students’ assessment in a written way should be eminently practical. What we should measure and evaluate would be our students’ communicative competence, and not much about their theoretical knowledge. We are foreign or second language teachers that teach and train our students at their capability of communicating, speaking and writing in that ...

  • 2720. Practical Written Tests and Their Correction and Scoring

    Written tests should be practical: simple to grade and score, and practical because they concern communication.  We teach a language, or to communicate in that language.  Speaking and listening could be assessed apart and daily, with the aid of a class list, with symbols or small titles, for the grades (or marks). Plus my knowledge of students’ ...

  • 2280. Fostering communication in class

    Is there communication in classes in the target language (English)?  We can measure and evaluate the value of a class of a language according to the quantity and quality of communication in English in that class.  The first premise is the teacher should say everything in English or 95% more or less.  Try to foster communication from the textbook ...

  • 1915. Assessment might be tough (or not)

    Assessment. It’s necessary for the student and for the teacher; in the latter case, in order to see how to improve, what I have done wrong, so it’s for my students’ benefit as well.  I think you should have a clear concept of assessing. Let’s focus briefly on written tests.  Beside grammar and vocabulary you should get a clear idea of the ...
