  • 3445. On Teen and Adult Learners

    On last post I told you that communication in English (the target language) is one of the main goals in my classes. Communication among intelligent people.  Also I told you we teachers should know our students to make them talk at the discussions about the points they know from their experiences. I teach adults at present.  Okay, then, I can tell ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 3432. Practicing the Four Language Skills Is Great

    I told you on the previous post that reading is good for learning and acquiring a language.  However, we must also practice the other language skills, namely: listening, speaking and writing – plus reading, remember.  Also we have to dedicate enough time to the grammar, which is kind of the skeleton of the language.  In other words, for learning ...

  • 3416. Authentic Communication in the Classroom

    We teachers of a second/foreign language should create an atmosphere in the classroom where that language is spoken.  I’ve seen it this summer once again. And it was nice. Even before and after the lesson that language can be spoken, between the teacher and the students. And it is nice. It is.  Also we may have a student from another different ...

  • 3414. When Teachers Are Great

    It is not simple at many schools yet and their teachers do whatever they can: they do their best! I only wish to help my colleagues.  I mean that unfortunately at some - only some maybe - Spanish schools yet a lot of English grammar is presented, but no emphasis is put on gaining some communicative competence.  However, this is changing in Spain. ...

  • 3409. Are You Curious about What You Teach?

    Non-native teachers that teach English for example – or another language – have to maintain that tongue alive and fresh. How? By reading books or e-books in that language plus listening to a radio station on the Internet.  As well a learner of a second or foreign language can learn and acquire it by reading and studying grammar books and the ...

  • 3404. Helping the Class with Sense of Humor

    Communication. That’s the goal. That’s the main objective for our lessons.  We second or foreign language teachers and teachers in general have to direct our classes to set nice communication among us the teacher and the students.  Thus we will not use the students’ language too much: we will tend to use the target tongue massively, turning to ...

  • 3348. Our Students Like Stories!

     Reading simplified and abridged readers can boost learning the foreign or second language, okay. When reading those readers the learner faces a communication problem to solve: he has to understand… and enjoy the novel or the non-fiction book. When we people face a communication problem to solve, we learn the language more quickly, even we ...

  • 3344. Creating a Nice Atmosphere in the Classroom

     So we teachers must create immersion in the target language in the classroom. But I do use our common mother language too! With some of the groups! The ones with lower level of English (the target language). Am I doing wrong? Maybe the key thing is creating an atmosphere where English is widely used and the students are exposed to that marvelous ...
