  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 1783. More Ways to Make Students Speak in English for Long

    On post # 1782 I told you other ways to have our students speak for longer than a solely sentence.  I teach adults currently.  One is defining a word, its meaning; presentations they have prepared as homework, presentations of their choice; summarizing a text we’ve read several times in the class, or repeating what they can remember from the ...

  • 1607. All in English is a nice point in their learning

    Make use of the daily conducting in classes for speaking in English: about dates, homework, tests and exams, announcements…  Say those things again, with other words in English or repeat the messages you give to your students.  You’ll feel the temptation of saying for example announcements in their L1. If you say those points in English, you’ll ...

  • 1536. Up the slope

    Mr. H. D. Brown recommended to plunge into the pond, and to communicate in the target language by overwhelming fear.  A teacher I know is happy to see her students understanding and communicating more and more in English. She is like pulling her students up the hill advancing on a slope and gradient upward, little by little, step after step. / ...

  • 1480. Communication, communication, communication

    Teacher A said to teacher B, “Remember there has to be communication among and between people in classes.  That communication ought to be real, genuine, authentic, from a person to another one.  The class isn’t a mere drill. Sometimes it must be drill, but the goal is communication among us people.  It is not a sole linguistic exercise in a ...

  • 1479. Speaking, speaking, speaking

    Teacher B said to teacher A, “Up to some extent speaking is the main language skill when learning a foreign or second language.  Or if you prefer, up to some extent that skill ought to be the mainly practiced skill.  You know a language when you can speak fluently, I would dare say.  In classes of English both students and the teacher should ...

  • Teacher A said to teacher B, ''Adults and young people can acquire the foreign language, not only learn it. They need to receive massive input and intake, for example orally. Then they start to acquire the language, like babies.  Although we're referring to adults and young people, these ones can also acquire the language, obviously in a ...

  • 1013. An immersion inside an English-speaking country

    Teacher A said to teacher B, “In our school, in a town of the south of Spain, not Granada, we teachers of English used to send some voluntary students to Ireland for some weeks in September, at the beginning of the academic year.  They lived with carefully chosen families.  The point was for those students to practice English in a situation of ...
