  • 3323. Our Job as Teachers Is Simply Great

     I was thinking, you know, we teach and learn languages for communication among people, and that’s so great so great, but not only for communication. A language supports also culture, literature, metaphors in that tongue… Something else: Think how it would be if we knew English and Spanish! I mean, they’re two of the languages most widely used on ...

  • 3318. La belleza de la profesión de maestros

     Es una maravilla poder expresarme en castellano o español y en inglés. Ayer leí en algunos sitios webs que el castellano o español es la tercera lengua de Internet: inglés, chino y español serían las tres lenguas más utilizadas en la Red. Y todo es cuestión de ponerse. De ponerse a aprender un idioma, si tienes tiempo y constancia. Modestamente ...

  • 3314. Communicating in the Target Language

     I’ve told you all that I keep on learning English. Learning a language is life-long, I can assure you. Something I carry out for my own learning that language is reading for example a novel. In some way reading a novel in English and enjoying it is like being in a country where English is spoken. As well our foreign or second language classroom ...

  • 3301. First Is People Then Language

     Learning and acquiring English as a foreign or second language demands an immersion atmosphere in that language, okay. But if our students need some encouraging words in their native language, it’s okay to do it so, in their mother tongue. Also they may need some small laughing, so as to break the ice, and that may be done in the mother language ...

  • 3299. From All Five Continents!

     I was thinking of when I started my career as a teacher. Now I would do things differently from then. For instance I’d carry out my lessons in English, the target language, and I’d implement a communicative approach to teaching. And I’d treat my students more humanly than then. Practice and experience make things different, so different. The ...

  • 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 ...

  • 3281. Communication in the Classroom Is Great!

     The foreign or second language teacher must train his students to acquire some communicative competence. A lot of communicative competence, I’d say. He will not give just language facts, like words, but he will train his students to get that competence. The communicative approach is okay. But consider also that it implies some notional and ...

  • Importance of conversational Skill in Professional Life

    The interaction between two or more persons is termed as communication. Importance of communication skills depend on the fact that is there any situation either positive or negative, but the communication skills can make the work skillful. For an example, it can be said that if a situation comes when we have a deadline for a project, and at ...

  • 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 ...

  • 3248. Communication in the Classroom? Essential!

     So we have that we second or foreign language teachers have to train our dear students to communicate in that target language, English for example. Great Rebecca Oxford (1990) offers some learning strategies that are useful for communication, both by speaking and by writing – also by listening and by reading. For example: switching to the mother ...
