  • 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 ...

  • 2509. Just for Talking in a Different Language

    Linguistic aural or oral competence.  It happens when the learner of a language, like English, tries to communicate with somebody else.  When he doesn’t know a word he explains the meaning, or gives synonyms, or asks for the other’s help. They’re learning and performing strategies. Sometimes they’re verbal, other times non-verbal though. ...

  • 2471. Plunging into the Water: Speaking in English

    One point I retrieve now, from the past course of English in July, is that I had to talk to the native teachers in a naturalistic way, say, on the spot, quickly, between classes, and all this is a nice experience and sound practice. / Photo from: sony-cineeurope-2014-dequals3-14 ds3 com

  • 2003. Internalizing the rules of the game

    A student really learns and acquires English when he embraces and internalizes the language.  This demands a lot of input and intake before, as much as possible. In such a case the language turns to be like a second nature in the sense of possessing a second language to communicate with others.  This process might take some years, likely. ...

  • 1999. Using the four linguistic skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing

    A student can attend an English course where one language skill is exploited mostly, say for example speaking.  However at regular classes of a school the four skills are interwoven often. I’m giving you an example.  We can implement an activity where a text is exploited – a text of their interest or about a topic they should receive ...

    Our school subject is very practical: teach English and help the students learn and acquire English, by means of learning strategies and teaching strategies.  These latter ones are embedded inside a methodology, such as communicative, which is ours.  The point is that one person learns and acquires a language for communication. And communication ...

  • 1766. English as a Vehicle Language

    In Spain, now and more and more English is being learned and acquired by people, by young people above all.  Some other people are scared of using English or people of the same school department of languages don’t communicate among them in English.  Nevertheless the situation is changing and for example a friend of mine talks in English with ...

  • 1202. Communicative language instruction

    On May 28, 2004 I wrote the following lines. It might help you. I changed little.  “Communicative language instruction and its measurement-focused twin, proficiency-oriented instruction, have taken hold.” (Page x).  It’s important to enhance the goal of proficiency in our classes: it’s not just a matter of teaching L2 but rather of leading our ...

  • 1178. It's a matter of empathy

    “Successful foreign language learners are able to bridge the gap, to close the distance that’s there” according to H. D. Brown.  The thing is that we need empathy, this is, the capability of putting yourself in someone else’s shoes. “Developing cultural empathy is easier said than done.  Each of us is so bound up in our cultural background and ...
