This unit I learned about the common problems that I might face when teaching English abroad, and I also learned about what the first lesson should look like. My first lesson should be a lesson where the students and the teacher get to know each other. Teachers should be able to establish rapport during this time. Activities that help establish rapport would be a 'pass the ball' activity, as well as a questionnaire/survey. It is important that in the first lesson the instructor is able to gauge the level the student is at, as well as checking for the needs of the students. Some of the common problems that might arise are large classrooms, use of native language, and reluctant students. Larger classrooms can be a useful tool because students can practice pronunciation as a group without fearing that students will make fun of them. Although, it is important to have activities in the class that suit larger classrooms and do not leave students out of participation. That is why group work/pairs are important in such classrooms. Students using their native language is a problem that has also come up with my classes at GMU. About 90% of my class spoke Chinese as a first language, so many students spoke to each other in their native language. Since I do not speak Chinese, I found it easy to follow the rules this lesson has given me. Although, since I am multilingual and speak over 4 languages, I know I might run into this problem when teaching abroad. With reluctant students, I found the advice given very useful. I should use a lot more pair work and not force a student to do something when they do not feel comfortable. Lastly, this lesson taught me about listening texts. This unit stressed the importance of using listening texts, even if they are hard for the students at first.
