We are living in a very diverse society and, want it or not, we need to communicate with each other. But in order to do that people have to speak foreign languages. When it comes to learning a new language the most common piece of advice given from adults to children is “You are young. Now is your time to learn a foreign language”. But I have always wondered why is that?
Teaching grammatical rules explicitly and expecting learners to memorize them is less effective. An important part of a language range is to know how to teach language forms in meaningful and effective ways. Learning vocabulary is an essential part of learning a new language. Where vocabulary is introduced and practiced in communicative contexts (rather than in lists), students are likely to see the relevance of learning words and phrases and to be sufficiently interested and motivated to remember them. Students will soon understand this language.
It is imaginable that the students can remember the words. As Fletcher (1993) said “Words remain the most important tool the writer has to work with”. Whether written or oral, students whose Fletcher described as a writer, has to work with words and of course they do. In here, new vocabulary collection for students is really needed. For students, it is not only something that they need in work, it is a must that students have to memorize it.
Being polite means being aware of and admiring the feelings of other people. We may not always notice politeness but we usually notice crudeness or thoughtless behaviour. Politeness can improve your relationships with others, help to build respect and resonance, boost your self-respect and assurance, and improve your communication skills. Many of the points raised on this page may seem obvious (in most cases they are common-sense) but all too often social manners are overlooked or forgotten. Take some time to read through the following points and think about how being polite and demonstrating good social etiquette can improve your relationships
Of course, learning process for the adults requires more effort, patience and motivation. That is why learning a foreign language for the adult students has significant differences. Despite all the difficulties and obstacles, even those who begin to learn a foreign language after 35 years should know: learn a language is possible at any age. The main points to remember are: the motivation and the presence of the teacher, who will find a way to help master the basic grammatical rules, which is very important for an
Therefore, learning a foreign language needs time and dedication. It entails the process of listening, speaking, reading, and writing, and depends on developing the ability to use the language on habit level Achieving these processes includes both linguistic and psychological aspects. Because teaching is a nonrandom process, many principles should be taken into consideration while teaching a foreign language. These principles are related to the material taught, to the way of teaching, and to motivating students. Each of these three principles is widely studied and should be applied professionally for the sake of emerging students who are able to speak the language
Also, greetings can depend on the social status, ranking, or respect level of the people greeting one another (for example, a younger person may greet in a particular way to show deference to an older). Although it may be difficult to learn precisely how you should greet every person in a given culture, it is at the very least a good idea to know a general greeting before you visit a new country. Never assume that the way you are used to greeting people will be normal in the place you are going. For example, while it is is normal for friends to hug each other in the United States, this greeting is considered very intimate by the French; but, on the other hand, many Americans are uncomfortable with the double-kiss-on-the-cheeks greeting used by the French. So before you visit a new country, try to familiarize yourself with their greetings and the appropriate body language for
The serious consideration to the spoken language as a subject for teaching has a long history. Initially, major attention was devoted to the teaching of pronunciation. Students of the spoken language spent many hours learning to produce the ‘sounds of English’ (Brown & Yule, 1987). That context of ‘native’ speakers of English is not so much different from the teaching situations of English as a Second Language and English as a Foreign Language. One of the basic problems in foreign-language teaching is to prepare learners to be able to use the language.
TITLE : A STUDY OF DIFFICULTIES AND SOLUTIONS IN LEARNING ENGLISH LISTENING SKILL OF THE FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS IN FACULTY OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE AT HOU RATIONALE : Listening skills are essential for learning languages since they enable students to acquire insights and information, and to achieve success in communicating with others. Life within and outside classroom offers many listening opportunities, but some students fail to seize them because they may concentrate on what they want to say themselves rather than on what a speaker is saying. Listening can be crucial in some situations and it is important that EFL learners develop their listening skills. The aim of this article is to highlight the problems that may interfere with listening comprehension
