Learning a second language has become really important as the years pass because of the necessity of being communicated, and Chilean people are aware of this. Some years ago, the Education minister Joaquin Lavin announced that the new Chile’s goal is to be a bilingual country within the next 20 years. Since that declaration, many projects have started in order to develop Chilean student’s English skills, which are listening, writing, reading and speaking. The last skill mentioned is the one in which our problem is focused on. In Chile, many students have problems when they talk in English since the mother tongue interferes in the target language.
At the same time, measures will also be taken to enhance proficiency in English (BI) so as to enable students to compete and explore new knowledge at national and international levels. As cited in Thirusanku and Melor, (2013), both of them stated that, the enculturation and mastery of English from school will also help in efforts to foster national unity and develop a new economy in a globalized, dynamic and increasingly challenging world. It is difficult to deny that both languages have an important role to play in producing human capital with the knowledge, skills and competency to drive a knowledge-based
The world all around is ever growing and developing right in front of people 's eyes. Our country needs to be able to develop and adapt in order to grow with the times. Learning a foreign language can be a great way to accomplish this. This would open doors never before seen by 75 percent of the American population. Harnessing students’ potential to learn a language at a young age might just increase their health later in life.

Children learn new things through everyday life experience. Especially, young children who attend to the program of day-care or preschool can develop speaking skills while they play and interact with peers and teachers, such as free play time, teacher-directed activities, and having snack and lunch together. According to Janice J. Beaty (2014), “spoken language is one of the important skills” (p. 197) and a child’s language acquisition begins at birth and progress through everyday life: young children go through the four stages, Preproduction (just listen) Transition to Production (response with single-word answers), Early Production (speak short phrases, do chat, sing, and have a simple conversation), Expansion of Production (speak expanded
ake predictions on what could be limiting Justin’s speech and language acquisition. - Justin 's speech could be limited due to being tongue tied, not getting enough opportunities to communicate outside of school because the family does not engage due to his lack of talking, and major illnesses such as Autism, Down Syndrome, and ADHD, it could have something to do with the way his brain developed during the prenatal periods or it could be that his family is not an English speaking family making Justin have difficulty with speech.

Teaching strategies, the first component includes: multiple teaching strategies including academically-oriented feed-back, proper correction of student errors, fast-paced exposure of tasks, and providing opportunities to participate. Teacher training is the next component. It was discovered that the best way to teach the teachers is the exact way the program is designed to teach its students. Students are continuously tested to monitor progress and check which students are ready to move on to the next activity. Equally important is the amount of academically engaged time.
English has become the official language in India and the Philippines, and there are a lot of English speakers in China. It was said that China and India hold the key to the long-term future of English becoming a global language. So if many people in their home country already speak English, when they move to the United States, they’re most likely to keep speaking it. Asian in American are learning English to adapt to the better means of communication. “Asians in America are learning English for the same reason.
The questionable and ambiguous nature surrounding the notion that children play an active role in acquiring language has been debated by many theorists of different perspectives. These three perspectives include the learning view, the nativist view and the interactionist view. In this essay I will discuss each perspective with reference to psychological theories and research that relates to each view.
Comparisons of Education in East and West A combination of these teaching methodologies can prove to be effective in the western world as we tend to spend a lot of time explaining and not being able to cover the Syllabus where as in the eastern world that is impossible. Both has its advantages and disadvantages. In the Eastern world the pass rates are higher but in the western world there is more creativity and innovation in terms of communication.
Hence, the students need to occupy themselves with more than one language so that they can be employed by the company, then the company have the chance to overcome the communication problem and achieve their organization’s goal. By learning foreign language, students can improve their intellectual development and have chances to discover other
The adapting to a western education system requires students, who received over 12 years traditional Chinese education, to use their transferable learning skills within a totally different teaching and learning style. At the beginning, I was faced with difficulties because of many differences in assessment system, attitudes towards answers, student-teacher relationship, and degree of participation. Although the first year of the university is about foundational modules for academic writing, presentations and research, I think the learning would have been more effective if the university had provided students with relevant courses in cross-cultural
TRADITIONAL TEACHING METHODS TO TEACH WITHN THE CONTEXT OF HIGHER EDUCATION Teaching methods refers to the general principles, pedagogy and management strategies used to classroom instruction. The choice to teaching methods depends on what fits educational philosophy, classroom demographic, subject area and school mission statement. The teaching theories can be arrangement into four categories and based on two major parameters- a teacher centred approach versus and a student –centred approach, and high tech material use versus low-tech material use. TEACHER-CENTRED APPROACH TO LEARNING Taken to its most extreme interpretation, teachers are the main figure in a teacher-centred instruction model.
