While this helps students become organized and more responsible it can cause many students to be stressed out. Families have to spend money on classes and materials used to prepare for these tests. Students have to balance school work and test prep which from personal experience is very stressful. It is true that these test challenge students to retain information which is a good skill to have but, there are other options besides
The lack of proper pronunciation causes problem for students in real life communication. On the other hand, most students believe that if they are better in pronunciation, they will be more confidence in English. It is also seen that generally pronunciation is neglected in classrooms. Even if pronunciation is taught with considerable amount of time, students should practice individually. Practicing only in classroom is not enough for achieving desirable
Although studying abroad may be much harder than studying in Kuwait, student will be exposed to various experiences during their studying period. Moreover, parents will also benefit from studying abroad in as much it will be less expensive. However, parents should be careful about their children when they desire to send them to study abroad. Students are enrolling in study abroad program more than ever before as a way to develop their intercultural knowledge and skills. To maximize the benefits to students, study abroad programs should be developed to facilitate the growth of intercultural knowledge and skills.
Student collaboration will also benefit all students because they can bounce ideas off with one another. However, this may be harder for students who are shy or do not know how to put their thoughts into words. These students could still participate though because they could express their thoughts in other ways, such as drawings. The Ministry of Education have also tried to implement solutions but have faced resistance from schools. They have sponsored projects in areas such as literacy, numeracy, Māori education, the Best Evidence Synthesis program, and teacher professional learning (Levin, 2011).
Knowing the language is actually knowing the culture. More importantly, speaking the language allow students to experience the culture. Hence, I believe that as a Foreign Language Teaching Assistant, my role is really significant in such that, in addition to this, I can give the students more resources by which they could approach a culture, by which they can immerse themselves in that culture, by which they can learn more about the culture in order for them to function in that culture, but this is not my main focus, as I would like them not only to learn about my culture, but also to bring their own culture into interacting in the culture that they are learning. Of course the linguistic competence and subject knowledge are of a great value in that students should learn and understand at the same time. Here, I will apply some of my techniques in ELT too, that is to say, effective CCQs ‘Concept Check Questions’, ICQs ‘Instruction Check Questions’, and also strong MPF ‘Meaning, Pronunciation, Form’ and PACS ‘Post Analysis Correction Stage’.
A student stressing is one that will most likely have problems concentrating in school. There's also the problem of the amount of staff that needs to be hired for this to be able to take place. There might not be enough staff that those activities need to be successful. They might have something important to do after school like picking up their children from school. This is why some of us may disagree with extracurricular activities being mandatory.
While public education may not always be able to cater to everybody’s needs and design rules that would best meet all expectations demanded of it, there are a few things that could change with the way school is structured. Amongst the proposed changes includes the changing of school hours – pushed back and hour, longer breaks in between class, and less focus on standardized teaching with more focus on teaching the material in a way that invites critical thinking, problem solving, and learning to learn. These proposed changes are not pointless in nature and they could each have potentially beneficial effects on students in general. Considering that some of the top countries in education espouse similar ideas mentioned above (i.e. Finland), it
Completing work can often become overwhelming and students may feel the need to take easier routes to complete their work but this goes against the academic integrity. If a student has any worries about their academic integrity they are encouraged to contact their professor, mentor or academic advisor for guidance. Violating academic integrity is something that is done too gain an advantage when completing an assignment, which is unfair towards other students completing the same work. The work that is submitted by the students
There existed the cultural and language differences among the team members. Therefore many learning activities were organized as a group but the challenges of language and cultural differences resisted producing the expected results. Students in the group varied due to academic levels and some of them were unable to embrace the other cultures. Language differences also impacted our teamwork due to language handling conflicts. There was a situation where people are competing with each other and trying to excel better than the other.
