The unit emphasized the necessity of both grammar and vocabulary when speaking a language by making a comparison to a tree, with its trunk and branches as grammar and its leaves as vocabular.
The first part of this unit covered teaching vocabular.
I learned that students usually know and understand a lot more words than they can use effectivel.
When choosing new vocabulary to introduce to students, it?s important to consider its appropriateness in age and level and the frequency with which they would use and see it as well as other aspect.
Next, the text covered many different teaching techniques for vocabular.
For the engage step, students can be exposed to the words during conversation or through pictures or object.
For the study step, they can use a variety of worksheets such as crosswords or word searches, as well as practicing in their own readings or storie.
For the activate step, they can practice using the words effectively in discussion, acting activities, or creating a story or poste.
The second part of the unit showed how to teach gramma.
The grammar one chooses to teach is usually determined by level and by the course syllabu.
Students need to understand the meaning as well as proper use when writing or speaking using the grammatical structure.
For engage steps, the students can gain exposure to these grammatical structures through question and answer or other discussion form.
For the study step, students need to practice sentence building, whether through written work or spoken practice such as in drill.
Finally, for the activate stage, students can use role play or more discussion and debate to practice using the grammatical structures effectivel.
Finally, we learned about teaching language function.
Language functions are useful to students of all age and ability ? these are templates that students will use when having functional conversations in Englis.
They must learn the appropriate level of politeness and how to identify it when using these language function.
Language functions are best taught using role play and dialogue activitie.
