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
I was tired of being label a slow reader. I was advanced in my math classes and hardworking student; because of this I knew there wasn’t anything wrong with me. I figured that if I can learn this complicated rules in math than I can learn how read better. With the help of my parents and other teachers I was able to figure out that I was exposed to three different ways of reading. Form that moment I told myself that I should practice the English literacy, since all the text books are written in English.
Not only by exposing them to the language they will speak, read and write the English language correctly, students must learn and understand the meaning of words. Vocabulary words help any English language learner communicate effectively with any other person. According to Wilkins (1972), “Vocabulary is central to English language teaching because, without sufficient vocabulary, students cannot understand others or express their own ideas.” On the other hand, many teachers recognize the importance of teaching vocabulary and they must emphasize it daily in their lessons. Among many skills, vocabulary in context is one of the most commonly used. To aid vocabulary in context, the use of a Card-file among other strategies may enrich the student’s experience and understanding of what they speak, read, and
Today, many people can strongly feel the importance of people who can not only read English but speak in English. I think teachers should adopt other methods such as Audio Lingual method and Comprehension approach. When I was in Junior high school, some teachers taught English using Audio Lingual method. The textbook that I used at Junior high school had lots of sentence patterns. My teacher required us to repeat the sentences.
My English improved dramatically through reading many in-class assignments, essays, and various open class discussions. I learned many new words, idioms, grammar structures and expressions in this class. The course deals with reading, writing, and teaching how to use grammar properly, my vocabulary has definitely increased. I also have gained the knowledge that correcting each draft brings my paper one step closer to constructing a well-organized and perfect. Nonetheless, I did not complete a peer review assignment or do any
This research would find out the non-numeric data and to describe it. The researcher would describe about: (1) what types of students’ motivations in learning English as EFL on Double-Degree program at foreign language academy ( ABA YW- UMI Makassar), (2) how the motivation emerge in the classroom during the teaching and learning
With the simple tools and the means of an easy to use translator commutation was made easy. As for planning, I did pre-print out work already translated, or half translated to ensure the students could practice with English reading skills. Though the planning stage mainly only used translation software. In much the same way I adapted to ELL students, I would find some app or some writing or reading software to help students with disabilities. Of course, what is used or needed depends on the need of the
Commonly, English is taught in the formal education institution like schools but today informal education institution has taken a part in spreading English. English course is one of many examples of informal education which has been an option for the students to improve their English skill
