  • 3252. Content-Based Instruction as Something Great!

     Many of us teachers believe that the communicative approach to teaching/learning a second or foreign language is okay, or among the best ones. But that way of teaching and learning is not confined to just conversation. Wait, wait, conversation is okay, and very necessary and a core point at that approach, but also we should give that way of ...

  • 3216. Staying Easy before Exams!

     A second or foreign language teacher can become mad as a hatter regarding getting communication in that language in the classroom, but let’s consider that we’re referring to communication among people, among persons.

  • 3197. Immersion into the Target Language Is Better

     If we’re English-language teachers, or another second or foreign language, I think we should teach in English, all the time. Don’t worry too much if you spoke in your and your students’ mother tongue, but rectify! Shift back into English. The point is making up immersion in the classroom. That’s the only way for our students to acquire and not ...

     Within some weeks I’ll be assisting and teaching at a couple of English-language summer camps, with teens and younger children. And that’s okay and I can help out there.

  • 3179. What Can You See? - You Look Admired!

Okay then, one activity which is very appropriate for naturalistic communication in the classroom is for the students – and for the teacher too! – to describe pictures. I bring to the classroom, in my bag, usually a magazine with many varied pictures, ...

  • 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.
