From this brief data it is logical to suggest that there is more room for Kazakhstani English learners and instructors to work on their fluency in speaking. This paper will try to review hitherto literature on speaking fluency development and show that fluency development, leads to accuracy improvement as well. Since the researcher is a university Foundation program teacher at Suleyman Demirel University, Kazakhstan, it was noticed that most of students of B1 level face the problem of speaking fluently even though their linguistic competence is really high. Students usually give really high grades at accuracy focused activities, whereas speaking tasks are often evaluated 1 or even two levels lower. Thus the issue the fluency aspect development of oral production was undertaken
My Experience of Learning English Nowadays, the English education almost starts at the same time of learning the mother tongue. It is because the awareness of the importance of learning English has been increased and it learning English has become compulsory in Korean education system. I started studying English at the age of 10 and have been learning continuously until today. I was taught English in three different countries which are Korea, the Philippines, and the USA. As I’m taking TESOL class now and look back my past experiences of learning English, it makes me think about what are the factors that affected me in learning English and how those factors are playing an important role in learning a language.
After 15 years living in Korea, I moved to the United States because my parents wanted me to learn more English. Even though I studied English for so many years, my new environment had a completely new culture and speaking in English was very difficult for me because everyone around me were Americans, who are obviously fluent in speaking English. Studying different
Successfully teaching English as a Second language to Non-Native English speakers English as a second language (ESL) has become one of the essential components of many non-native English countries school curriculums across the world. The importance of English comprehension in today 's youth has led to the language growing to become the worlds most studied language with 1.5 billion active learners (Noack). Teaching a skill as broad as English requires for a teacher to create a sense of importance of mastering the subject with students. Another challenge with learning any language is continued practice outside of the classroom, which is required to become fluent in English. During this critical learning an English as a second language teacher, must provide constant feedback for students and create a diverse curriculum which allows for students of all learning styles to find success in learning a new language.
There was a great demand for dictionaries because English was the first language in the country, and the English was taught in the schools. Grammarians at that time got busy with something else. They were busy with the teaching and the teaching methods and there was conflicts between them about the best teaching methods. Grammarians couldn’t meet the demands of the public . That’s why the lexicographers took the role to start writing dictionaries.
For example, I took developmental courses before I took my major courses. I did well in my developmental courses. English and math are very easy for me, so after my developmental courses, I thought I could study four courses at the same time. However, after I started to take my major, everything is different from developmental courses. Everyday, I had to spend two hours to remember the words from business and economic class because I did study these words in the developmental education.
With my technique of creating stories in my mind, I was able to practice the language of English; the bad part is that I never got the chance to practice pronunciation that much. Nevertheless, I increased my vocabulary and knowledge each day; I wish I had the excitement to write them as soon as I got home, but that never happened. My pronunciation and my writing skills are not the best but I am able to speak and write fluently in English and I hope that in the future I get to become more comfortable with the language of my adoptive
Being able to speak many foreign languages is becoming more and more important in today’s world, especially international languages such as English or Spanish. Being fluent in these languages is a gateway to finding jobs abroad as well as to personal growth. In my country there’s a saying: “You are as many times a person as many languages you speak” and I couldn’t agree more. When I started learning basic English words along with the ones of my native language when I was 3 years old, I could have never imagined that 15 years later it will be one of my greatest passions, that I’d become so immersed in it that I even think sometimes in English. However I have discovered that my talent isn’t limited only to English; I’m now also intensively learning
Besides, students, and frankly all of us, are still in the process of mastering the English language. In addition, allowing an oral bilingual exam will also help this process. If the practice of bilingual response has been allowed already across all subjects, why I am not hearing in the news for the past few years? And why students keep begging to let them use the Samoan language in cases of brain-draining-exam-related
Oral communication is taught through question and answer. In this method, correct pronunciation and grammar accuracy is emphasized and grammar is taught inductively not by rules. There is no translation in this method but still mistakes are not allowed. It is suitable for small classes. It also requires high students' motivation because most of the lesson time is oral practice with the teacher consisting of a controlled dialogue in which the teacher asks questions based on previously introduced vocabulary.
