  • 3163. How to Foster Fluency in the Target Language

     Some weeks ago I watched a video in the Internet about the educative school company where I taught in Jaén, southern Spain, and I got stunned: I saw a girl aged 12 or 13 from the female school of the city plus a young man from the male school speaking in fluent English, and it was all amazing, like they were totally bilingual. As a matter of ...

  • 3159. The Teacher's Duty of Reaxing Too!

     I have some stuff for posting, but today I wanted to write about something necessary both for the teacher and for the students, which is resting and relaxing. All that’s also one teacher’s duty, because amid other reasons the teacher has to spend long with his family and recover strength for next battle. By the way I pray God for peace in so ...

  • 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, ...

  • 3142. Teaching Adults is Simply Great!

    Lessons with grown-ups are great! Besides those lessons enrich the teacher too and for a great deal, because the students have many things to tell you, also after the lesson or at recesses. And from the way they work they can teach you a lot. It’s my case now. As well those lessons take them somehow to their young age, when they were kids or ...

  • 3129. How to Enhance Memory

     My senior students – retired people – tell me sometimes they’re losing memory, up to what extent is this? What I have clear in mind is that I make them train their memory, by repeating exercises they do, like remembering points from past worksheets I hand them out: they’ve got to recall their topics, their vocabulary, the main ideas, their ...

  • 3127. In Contact with Real People in the Classroom

     We teachers cannot forget we work with people, with singular persons, with singular human persons. It’s evident but let’s think of it. So when we plan a lesson, which is something we must do, planning lessons, we should have our real students in mind, our actual students in mind, with their needs, their expectations, with their ways of being. ...

  • 3113. Sheer Communication in English

     Today at the center where I teach grown-ups have had an interesting experience. We’ve been talking in English for an hour, from some worksheets a female student has provided to us, about healthcare for the old. Today there were only three students and they three were speaking in English rather fluently, I’d say. That’s great. We’ve discussed ...

  • 3108. More on Fostering Communication

     I mentioned and pinpointed smiling as a teaching aid for fostering communication in English, our common target language. Smiling, and a clever smiling, can lubricate communication among grown-ups, as more or less I said on post #3107. Well, also among teens or children smiling can have an enhancing potential to create and make up that ...

  • 3107. How to Foster Communication in Our Lessons

     We second or foreign language teachers foster communication in the classroom, is it true? Okay then, let’s say all we need to say in that target language, as I’ve told you sometimes, even announcements! Albeit we’ll have to explain more and use more plain English (the target language in my case) and use the smartboard or chalkboard as a useful ...

  • 3100. Plenty of Communication in English!

     I’m concerned about the fact that with my lower-level class I utilize our mother language too much, to the detriment of English, our target tongue. I don’t know quite well but we can be using Spanish up to some 8 to 10% of the allotted time. Which is much, I’d say. And I’d like it diminish. Let’s do something: next lesson with that class is next ...
