INTRODUCTION The objectives of English language learning are I) To enable the students comprehend the spoken form II) To develop students ability to use English in day-to-day life and real life situation III) To understand the written text and able to use skimming, scanning skills IV) To write simple English to express ideas etc The teacher should play different roles to get these objectives of English language. Role of English teacher in developing listening skills in students: Listening is the basis to learn any language. No one can speak second language without listening to it. Students, who come from English medium, are good at English as they have English atmosphere in their class rooms. After completion of degrees, they are good at
Due to this examination, many ESL teachers are expected to teach concepts which are on the test. An interesting point made by Ashworth was that if a student struggles with learning English in the classroom, they should not be removed from the class or held back but instead continue with their original class. A key component to properly learning English is developing a unique classroom culture that fosters learning the language (CITE). As a result, it is ideal to adapt lessons to the various learning styles of children as every child learns differently, some visual others through lectures (CITE).
It is also important to develop speaking and listening skills together because most of the time in real life these skills are needed at the same time. In addition to speaking, teachers can ask students practice writing a topic related to the listening. Thus, combining those skills will help prepare students for listening situations in real life where several skills often need to be used simultaneously. Harmer (2007) suggests “live listening” can be applied for listening lesson instead of using audio material story-telling, interviews, and conversations. Adding to that, Doff mentions that “using English for chatting to the class, for giving instructions and explanations” will provide students with very useful listening practice.
Students can be given a writing prompt and have their peers edit their work. This is a great way to get students working together, while learning how to correct mistakes in grammar. Another method of teaching grammar is using games. Research has shown that teaching through games give students the excitement to learn. It provides students with the hands-on learning experience.
With all this conflicts we’re still searching for ways to teach pronunciation. Many researchers suggest to use dialogues during pronunciation, and not just reading them, giving students time to think how to say the words in the context. Another way is called shadow reading. In this activity learner reads along with a competent reader (Scrivener, 2005). Using and saying the word in the context (in its natural place) and letting the learners to repeat is a useful way as well.
In the working experiences as teachers, we are prepared for a population with the basic skills developed, but if someday you will work with kids, Hw to teach English to young children? ; That is the reason for create this article, thinking in teachers who have always worked teaching English to group or adults, and maybe in the future they will have to make a class with little children, and needs know how can develop it in the best way. When we think of the ways to teach English in little kid are not easy to answer the question, because usually in academic world, we are taught many methods, strategies and ways to teach skills in writing, reading, speaking and writing and adults or young people, who have mastered these skills almost complete, but the real dilemma
Students sometimes wonder about what will help their grade goes up and be good at studying. And they always have some things in mind that they need to read more books. However, the students just think and not try in reality. Reading helps students in a lot of different ways. Reading can help the students a lot by supporting students at other subjects, get higher grades in school, and teach them about the world around them.
All the listening exercises are given support by charts, pictures or graphs to make listening easier to the student. Writing The writing exercises include practical writing tasks which extend and reinforce the grammar. Correct spelling and capitalization is fostered in The Crackerjack Series. There is an extra section called The Writing Ally which helps students develop these skills through extra practice and drills. Reading Reading skills are developed as well as the receptive language through this kind of drills.
All the students’ reading materials consists of stories familiar to the learner so that the focus of the learner is on the process of reading rather than being distracted with new situations and unfamiliar people and places. Teachers integrate oral literature, local arts, local history, craft and music in the syllabus so as to support the learner’s culture. This strategy stipulates a link between what the learner knows (his/her first language and culture) and the unknown (what they need to learn). They studied elementary students in Lubuagan, Kalinga to filter out how many students learned better using their native language or using Foreign (English) Language. The study succeeded and found out that many of the top 40 students of each level improved their performance after being taught using their native language.
With teaching strategies, teacher can handle all of problems in teaching English in classroom. According to Brown (2000:113) explain that strategies are methods or approach of solve problem and tasks, models of achieving a particular teaching, a design planning for control and manipulate certain information. in other words, strategies is a plan of teacher before he/she teaches in the classroom. Teacher can create their own strategies to make class more effective and efficient when teaching English. Using strategies in teaching English should make students interested and did not make them bored.
