TESOL Videos - Classroom Management for Teaching English as a Foreign Language - Common Issues
There are some other classroom management issues that we need to consider and they may include issues such as writing on the board, giving students individual attention, the use of teacher talk time, the way in which we should give instructions to our students, the building and maintaining of rapport with our students, and finally the one that perhaps most new teachers particularly spend a lot of time worrying and thinking about, is the issue of classroom discipline. So what we'd like to do is to take each of these in turn and look at some of the major issues surrounding these classroom management issues.
Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.
Different methods of teaching English have been developed and each method has a different focus or target. There are many teaching methodologies but it has been said that there is not one single best method for everyone. Here are some of these methodologies. The oldest and the most popular among the teaching methodologies is the Classical Method, now known as Grammar-translation. The purpose of this method is basically to translate to and from the target language. This will work well if both languages have the same grammar structure. This method was intended to develop reading and writing skills but not speaking skills. Because this method was unnatural, natural method was developed. It was known as the direct method. In this method, the teaching is done in the target language by recreating the same conditions as how native language was learnt. Language learning should be much more communicative and much more natural. One methodology is the Audio-lingualism. This involves acquiring habits and concentrates on long repetition drills. New language is first heard and extensively drilled before seeing the written form. Another methodology is the Silent Way. The goal of the teacher here is to say as little as possible so that the learner can be in control of what he wants to say. This methodology uses colored rods, each color representing an aspect of English language. In Suggestopa
