There are some suggestions to the English teachers at Elementary School in order to improve the students’ ability in speaking.The writer expects the teacher to find many creative ways to make student interest in learning English especially in learning speaking skills. The teacher can help the students to practice English speaking skills by using various teaching techniques. One of them is using game such as hopscotch game. It is suggested to the teachers to use this technique as their references in teaching speaking English to their students. Therefore, the teacher can focus on helping the students practicing, organizing and delivering the ideas into the sentence in learning speaking English.
Therefore, teachers should equip children with the best strategies to foster in them effective listening skills. This author states as well that songs are a tool where children can be directly in contact with the language in a fun way. By singing songs, children can easily internalize structures, patterns, and specific language items that are presented in them. Similarly, Murphey (1992) as same as Sharpe advocates that songs enable students to internalize the new vocabulary since these provide excitement to the lessons and are enjoyable for children to learn. This allows children to acquire new vocabulary easily and store it not only in their short term memory, but in their long one as well.
According to Harmer (2006) cited by Cruz (2013), “students can learn grammar rules and pronunciation patterns differently pointing out that ‘awareness-raising’ is an important factor when teaching” (p. 15). He explains that the teacher could use other listening techniques like games or songs in order to increase their awareness and become more independent in their pronunciation learning. The main purpose of these kind of activities is motivating the students using different methodologies, and choose the best according to their needs. As an example, the use of songs according to Jones (2008) is more productive and meaningful when students are practicing rhythm and sound in a more natural way (cited by Cruz, 2013). First, when students are practicing pronunciation with a song that they like, they become more interesting because as Jones (2008) explained the activity becomes more interesting since they are trying to “reproduce” what they are hearing.
Critical Essay 2 Norma Liendo Teaching English as a Second Language Teaching today has become a very interesting job for soon-to-be or current teachers due to the high culture diversity in their classrooms. Teacher not only have to be well prepared to present quality education but also to be able to accommodate for all the students needs regardless of origin, color or race. The important point is not teaching different children but due to their different backgrounds they learn differently; thus, the teachers now need to become aware of the students’ cultures in their classroom as soon as possible. These different learning styles should make the teacher knowledgeable that he/she might have to embark on a journey to explore the students’ cultures and embrace them because at the end of the day he/she has the responsibility to teach all students in the most effective way. To become an effective teaching today
Whole-class learning is able to proceed largely because students are able to learn when the task comes within the range of their current knowledge. Mixed groups at professional courses pose special problems for both learners and teacher. Learners in a mixed group class at professional courses possess different levels of linguistic and communicative competencies. Most teachers understand in practice that the learners have different linguistic standards in English language, i.e. learning ability and ability to perform in English.
When a tenth grader enters in a foreign language classroom, he/she is anxious and nervous about learning a foreign language. There are many ways to modify assignments and assessments to help English learners, including using sentence frames, sentence starters and vocabulary banks. These modifications provide support structures that allow them to better articulate their thoughts and opinions without having to nervously struggle with every single word. Modifications can also help reduce the fear of judgment because they have tools to guide them to the correct way to verbalize or write their responses. Once they become more advanced, those sentence starters and vocabulary words will become second nature, and you can build on that support structure
