Kewaunee, Wisconsin TESOL Online & Teaching English Jobs
This unit has taught me about the different methods of teaching a foreign language, such as the Present-Practice-Produce method, grammar-translation method and audio-lingual method which focus on teaching grammatical structure, while the lexical approach focuses on teaching vocabulary and set phrases. The recommended method for new teachers is Engage-Study-Activate, the first part of which is predominantly a stimulating and fun activity to ensure all students start thinking and talking in the new language. The second part, Study, starts off by the teacher eliciting responses from students, before presenting on the new language concept, which students will repeat in drills. This is then followed by exercises to reinforce what has been learnt, and at the end the teacher will review the worksheet and provide feedback. The third part, Activate, is an activity for students to be creative with the language and employ the new language concept, and here the teacher will usually monitor and occasionally tutor individuals or groups. The sequence should change depending on the students' abilities as well as to provide a variety of lesson plans. When giving feedback, I have learnt that teachers should be positive and emphasise on what students have said or done correctly rather than excessively correct everything, as it would affect the students' motivation. Similarly, students should first be given the opportunity to correct their own mistakes, and next have other students help correct them, before the teacher steps in. However, this will depend on the students, as some students (possibly older and more advanced students) may feel humiliated if they were corrected by their peers.
