Through storytelling, teacher will be able to inculcate different vocabulary in the story and this will allow young learners to get used to the correct form of language structure. Young learners who listen to story are actually experiencing a form of learning meaning of words in context. Storytelling becomes an effective way to introduce new vocabulary to children. According to Sen (2014), when learners have the ability to relate words to their meaning better, these words are retained in their memory for long. From this, they will be able to remember the meaning of the
The good way of using gadgets could bring positive impacts to students as addressed in 2.3.1, but the vice versa can be observed in 2.3.2, respectively. 2.3.1 Positive effects Positive effects on students are discussed about good academic performance as per stated in 126.96.36.199 below. 188.8.131.52 Good academic performance At the moment, students frequently use the gadgets for the schoolwork; which they use them to find sources of information to complete their assignments. Besides that, students may learn from the gadgets to discover new things/information and to become independent learners after the school hours. Therefore, students will be extending their reach as well as broadening their experiences beyond the classroom regarding thinking, reading, writing, researching, inventing and problem solving.
Textbook’s vocabulary profile and review Introduction According to Schmitt (2000), vocabulary is a set of words or word families that is used for linguistic communication. Although learning vocabulary is an essential part in a foreign language learning (Dodigovic, 2013), it causes difficulties for students for a variety of reasons. The first one is the amount of words, that nonnative English speaker has to know in order to communicate and understand English language well. Depending on learner’s role, this number may vary from 2000 the most basic and common lexis to 150000-20000 word families of native speaker-like vocabulary size (Nation & Waring, 2007). The next reason is the different aspects of knowing a word, such as word’s meaning, register,
Brown also emphasized that your own language and the task that you are used to do will allow you as a student to see the relevance of the different classroom activities. It is easier to understand the message if the sender and receiver use their local language rather than other languages. Furthermore, he said that to be able to improve one’s oral communication skill, one must get involved in the process to acquire the proper means and ways of communicating. Tongco, as cited by Prejoles (1997), stressed in her study that the different complications in oral communication continue to give challenges not just only to the students but also to the English language teachers over the past few years, so that teachers find ways on how to enhance the oral communication competence of their students and how to make language teaching more pertinent and more effective. According to an interview with Ferrer (2017), he said that oral communication skills are very important because it gives further support for the sender and the receiver to understand the message properly.
Moreover, teachers could expose learners by using tunes, poems and phrases to improve stress, intonation and rhythm. Promoting reading and the discussion of what they have read, to make improvements in their word knowledge and in their knowledge in all language systems. Some exercise activities can be Mimicking Pairs, Cuisenaire Roads (word and sentence stress), focusing on context, rising or falling, intonation and feelings. In the former, teachers can model a word and students repeat by copying the same stress and tone. The second is an activity where rods represent stresses words or syllables.
Discussion is a valuable form of learning in culture, but teachers cannot expect all students to be able to discuss complex issues at a high level in a foreign language. Often, even high-level students need some preparatory activities with clear goals before they can proceed to discussion. Some of our favourite activities are discussed below. Many teachers have found that quizzes are one of the more successful activity types. Quizzes can be used to test materials that you have previously taught, but they are also useful in learning new information Teacher should ask the students to answer true or false to each of the questions in pairs or groups.
Many students equate being able to speak a language as knowing the language and therefore view learning the language as learning how to speak the language, or as Nunan (1991) wrote, "success is measured in terms of the ability to carry out a conversation in the (target) language." Therefore, if students do not learn how to speak or do not get any opportunity to speak in the language classroom they may soon get de-motivated and lose interest in learning. On the other hand, if the right activities are taught in the right way, speaking in class can be a lot of fun, raising general learner motivation and making the English language classroom a fun and dynamic place to be. Practising speaking skill in a right way is not possible without grammar. A student has to rehearse speech after learn the basic rules of grammar.
Moreover, the idea can increase an awareness of the need to communicate which is currently the significant goal of learning English. The benefits to be taken for granted as a result of technology are to provide students the real opportunities, to help them learn easily and effectively, to create an enjoyable language learning, to enhance their capacity to be a good learner, lastly to switch teaching into more satisfying and beneficial. In reality, teachers are supposed to guide their students' self-learning beyond the class. Technology alone probably might not be influential without teachers' guide. Therefore, being creative and communicative with students are the essential features of the teacher as a
