  • 3290. On Motivating Our Students

     On post #3288 I wrote that positive motivation helps us get discipline and nice classroom management. And it’s so! I’ve seen it I can confess so to you. Positive motivation helps create nice rapport between the teacher and the students, and it’s so too. If your students do things fine you can tell them that you thank them for their attention and ...

  • 3278. When the Students Are So Great

     I have recently started English classes with more adults. They’re great. And very motivated. I enjoy to teach them, they’re demanding though. They need English for traveling and because some of them have sons or daughters in some English-speaking country, mainly in the UK, Ireland or the States. They’re great, and very demanding, as I said. Now ...

  • 3271. Achieving Highly Motivated Students

     I had the following quotation from somewhere among my notes. It is adequate and innate for man to seek and wish what is good for other people, for the other person. Man is happy if he has got friends, to whom he can seek happiness. The teacher, what does he do? What does he do ultimately? He seeks happiness for his students. Okay, he teaches, ...

  • 3269. Motivation Plus Autonomous Learners!

     Today I’ve read about a school in Spain that has nothing to envy the best schools for example from Finland – which are among the best ones, not to mention also there’re quite many brilliant schools in the USA... I’d like to read the article from the paper for longer and I could let you know about my findings. The point, the main point is that… ...

  • 3240. Are You a Charismatic Teacher?

     Some useful and interesting points for today. I know about a man that used to say that the more you study something the more you like it! And that’s something we can explain to our students. The more you learn about something the more you’ll be interested on it. He had chosen the degree of Medicine, kind of by chance. However he had applied all ...

  • 3234. Our Students Like Stories!

     Reading texts in the target language is a nice and suitable activity, which one we have to exploit a lot: reading makes you learn that target language. And better if those texts are meaningful to our students. They must be meaningful and interesting to them. But also providing texts that seem not to be interesting for our students can be a ...

  • 3232. More to Boost Motivation in the Classroom

     We second or foreign language teachers have to speak massively to our students, okay. And sometimes we’ve got to make an oral presentation about some issue, okay. Something that boosts, enhances, and fosters massive speaking is… massive reading. Also for our students, before an oral exam in that target language, it could be useful to read ...

  • 3231. How to Motivate Our Students: Some Hint

     Self-motivation is adequate for learning. Of course! Some geniuses, like Edison, Einstein and Steve Jobs weren’t motivated and good at regular learning at school. Otherwise they were motivated for the knowledge areas they showed they were so good... Also we teachers have to be careful and prone to discover the areas or skills our students are ...

  • 3227. A Nice Way of Managing the Classroom

     Self-discipline. That is just necessary. It is not enough we think we can manage the classroom. It is necessary for the students to have and develop self-discipline. Yes, because only in that way they’ll set to work and learn. And self-discipline can be taught to those students. How? Well, explaining to them the advantages and necessity of ...

  • 3225. What a Motivated Person can Do!

     I know an English-language teacher that got C2 level of that language, which as you may know is the top level of a language. And with stays that were few and short in English-speaking countries. What was his secret? His attitude. Yes, just his attitude. He was eager to learn and acquire the language. He learned his English in Spain, while ...
