  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 2385. Something Useful When Giving a Speech

  • 1825. Something special was scheduled for the next Friday

    “Next Friday Luke Wallace will come to our classroom. He is a teacher from Australia. Think of two questions that you want to ask him. Write those two questions in your notebook.

  • 1726. Preparando para los exámenes de Cambridge

    Hoy me dirijo especialmente a mis seguidores de habla hispana que no dominan bien el inglés.  Efectivamente al preparar a una persona para los exámenes de inglés de Cambridge, opino que si no hay mucho tiempo hasta el examen, se practique la comunicación oral sobre todo.  Para mí la destreza del listening es la más difícil.  Tenemos que ...

  • 1170. Authentic communication in the target language is necessary and nice

    “The language teaching profession was still not ready for much real communication [50 years ago for example].” (page x). Today we as teachers should foster real communication too and not just always simulation. Think for instance of the warm-ups we practice in class: they usually deal with real things of the students’ lives and current news. The ...

  • 321. Flying high

    One day teacher B said to teacher A, ''Presentations made by the students are something convenient. They speak about a topic their choice for example, for longer than a mere response to a question. It's very different when one student has to speak for one minute, five, or half hour. The main point should be the presentation be clear, easy to ...
