They say, speaking their native language in class would take away from the set time dedicated to learning other content, but it would be easier if students could ask questions in their native language and communicate in a language they are comfortable speaking in and asking questions. Learning content would be easier for them because they would be able to ask questions and if they had any problems, identify the problem and fixing that problem would be a lot more simple due to being able to use their native language to understand what that problem is and fixing it with their understanding of the language. In an article by Anya Kamenetz about the positive effects of bilingual education mentions that the best way to learn a language is to use both the language being learned and the language already know. Using both languages would ease each student into learning a new language. In allowing ELL students to use their native language they have the ability to ask questions in both the language they are learning and the one they are completely comfortable communicating in which is beneficial to their ability to learn a new language with the understanding they already have of their native language.
Educators need to incorporate multicultural educational activities into the curriculum that promote acceptance among culture. Although culturally responsive pedagogy has emerged an avenue for promoting student achievement, instructional tools are needed to support application of the theory in multicultural classrooms (Herrera, Holmes, & Kavimanda, 2012). Teachers that are not culturally aware of the needs for multiculturalism in the classroom may need
Even when language differences take place, a teacher's willingness or attempt to speak the home language can deliver care for the parents because the willingness can encourage them to feel comfortable enough to speak in English plus can improve possibilities for communication. In order for the schools or nursery’s to reach beyond these barriers, there needs to be parental involvement applied in the education program. Parents may not speak the same language as the member of staff this can cause not much or no communication and can lead to frustration. This can be overcome by getting the parent to bring someone with them who can help them understand what has been said this may also have to be in written format but a lot of computers these days also have a translation setting of written
And in this case, bilingual instructional support can be practical to help students learn common subjects well in a language that they can understand. Thereupon, they won’t fall behind because of the language difficulty. Besides, the acquirement of English proficiency is equally important to LEP students’ academic development. Bilingual education can not only be helpful in school curriculum, but also is a practical program in which LEP students are able to learn both English and their primary language and also use their first language to acquire English proficiency for a long run.

This idea would prevent gaps in the students’ learning since there would have to be some type of evidence of the students knowledge about the objectives. Not only will Mastery-Based Learning allow students to complete their task completely one by one, but it is more individualized than the traditional model, allowing more student progression and better pacing. “An MBL environment is a more individualized approach than a traditional model. Teachers and parents see areas where students are struggling and can provide the timely feedback and support needed to address learning gaps and keep students moving forward.” (CSDE). Since Mastery-Based Learning allows a more individualized driven work ethic, students would avoid gaps in their learning by completing their work at their own personal pace.
I think that students should choose because it can help them in these ways. The book would be more pleasurable . They can understand the book better, and the teacher will not have to read it again. These reasons will help with the kids love of English, also ensuring that the kid will have fun too. The students can choose a book that is more enjoyable for the class to read.
In the English learning literature, the development of a positive attitude towards learning could be attributed to Integrativeness, or the genuine desire to learn a new language so that one can communicate with the members of the community who use the language as their medium of communication (Dörnyei, 1998). However, as the world has become more borderless as exemplified by the EU and the ASEAN, other attitudinal factors were conceptually included. The additions were attributed to the changing of concept from ‘English is a second language to learn’ to ‘English as an international language’(Dörnyei & Ushioda, 2009). This resulted to the addition of other attitudinal factors that include Direct contact with English speakers (attitude towards actually meeting English speakers and travelling to their countries) ; Cultural interest (appreciation of cultural products from English speaking countries conveyed by the media); Miliu (the general perception of the importance of English in the learners’ friends and family) (Dörnyei & Ushioda, 2009). From the aforementioned attitudinal factors, the following hypotheses were
Through the readings done in class, there have been realizations about emergent bilingual students that have not only shocked me but have made me feel more prepared to properly educate these students. These realizations include the importance of understanding your students’ individual cultures rather than bunching all English Language Learners into the same category; as well as understanding that there are different levels of English Language Learners and creating individual guidance for those students. A third takeaway from the readings thus far involves the educational policies which schools mandate for their ELL’s. These are some ideas that would not have even crossed my mind without these readings, but it has now become clear how vital
By knowing English, children especially young generation have chance to reach this information and have a hand in making changes which makes traditional culture become more reasonable. There should not be any risks in the loss of traditional Vietnamese cultural identity if the adults, like parents or teachers, carefully guide their children how to use those foreign knowledge as safely as possible. If children use the purpose of learning English wrong, it is
Aural means related to sense of hearing and oral related to verbal communication. Surely when the student is getting better in both listening and speaking they will reach communicative competence. Communicative competence refers to the level of language learning that enables language users to convey their message to others and to understand others’ messages within specific context (Hymes, 1972). Of course to reach this competence, both listening and speaking improvement is really needed. The Aural-Oral approach is very effective to be implemented in English Language Teaching in case to build communicative competence of student.
