This is why I choose to do most of my work outside of the classroom. With that being said, I understand the reasons for attendence and have the outmost respect for the rules. But as a personal note, I find that some courses can sometimes be less beneficial from being in the class because the professor might have an accent or an argument that confuses me more times than not. Another way I have improved my grades is by utilizing the members at the tutoring center. The goals that I have made for myself throughout the rest of the semester are to utilize my time better as well as to study for my tests and taking care of my priorities first hand.
Although I feel that my speech had a strong structure, I do feel that my slides and I could have done more to make the presentation better. I think that I did not present enough information with slides or press the importance of the ones I did use enough. I also feel that I sped through my presentation too fast and should have tried harder to slow down so that my audience could follow along easier. I also had trouble with remembering what it is I needed to say once I stepped in front of the class, even after many practices rounds with my roommate and study group. This caused me to frequently look at my note cards, taking away from my eye contact and physical gestures.
Going for help is much better than trying to figure out for myself what i needed to work on. I know by setting a goal for myself and planning has also made me grow as a student. My reading and thinking isn 't much of a problem. But i still have a lot of weaknesses i need to focus on, such has actually trying to read an article or sometimes missing key ideas of what i’ve read. My
The most recurrent situation was students talking, so in this case, she usually called students’ attention and asked them to keep silence. When they repeated their behaviour, impeding the continuation of the lesson, she asked students to stand up at the back of the class or she asked them to leave the class. I was not particularly in favour of this measure as students were deprived of the learning opportunities. Finally, with more complicated situations, she turned to give students a warning. These kinds of situations were more recurrent in the two 1st ESO group, where class management was more complicated and students showed a lower level of motivation and interest towards the subject.
To some people it is not. Some teachers say that the book is challenging for students. Now, this novel may be difficult for students, but that is how students learn new information. If students weren’t to have read harder pieces of literature all throughout their schooling career, they would stay at the same level of reading for most of their life. The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read.
I was more confident with a smaller group of peers, but was determined to be able to speak confidently in front of a class. Now, this wasn’t like a switch flipping. I felt enormous anxiety when speaking up in class, and I would run over what I planned to say repeatedly, searching for fallacies in my argument, but it eased the worry that clouded my ability to speak. I did learn the importance of communication that day, and a reliance on communication has stuck with me. It was through this that I learned the power of being quiet.
So I started to ask my friends what they meant knowing that they might make fun of me, but they did not make fun of me. I was able to learn english faster than many people because I worked hard. I was also able to learn the phrases even though I was too afraid of asking what they meant. As you can see, I have faced and overcome the most significant challenges of my life when I came to United
Colege has transferd better work habits directly into my everyday life. College has taught me so much already. Making me more independent also making me do more school work and study more often for quizzes and tests. I like the changes I am seeing for the most pasrt but the work involved is not fun. College has taught me that not everyutyhing will be fun that is good for
Whether the language is learned through a formal, informal or mixed context will influence the outcome of how they use it and perceive it, which is not surprising due to the fact that, as mentioned by Toya & Kodis (1996), Dewaele (2004a; 2005) and Horan (2013), books do not often present students with taboo words, sticking to a more formal language that many times is far from reality and from what people will find in everyday conversations. Mercury (1995) argues in favour of the importance of teaching adult students of English about taboo language – not the words per se, but a more comprehensive view of why people use it and its meaning within a social context. The author says that “it is probable that EFL/ESL speakers often misunderstand and misuse obscene language simply because they are left on their own to learn about its use”
I find that anxiety causes me to stumble and mispronounce my words which only makes it more difficulty to present all that I have planned. However, this time it was different and I finished my presentation with a sense of pride. Although, I know that with practice I will become more confident and proficient in public speaking, I believe my presentation UTIs was the best I have done so far. I have learned the importance of not reading directly from my cards, and also the necessity of making eye contact with the class to ensure they engaged. I was gratified when Lynn noticed that I endeavored to involve the class and help them understand that my subject and its content was important to us all.
