Knowing a language other than the mother tongue is a critical concern in today’s world of international communication. According to Rondal (2000), those people who can speak only in one language are regarded as illiterate. As exhibited by research, there are a lot of advantages of bilingualism including broad cognitive development and executive functions enhancement through life span (Bialystok & Craik, 2010). While multilingualism is an obsession for many language teachers, it may seem ridiculous when it comes to teaching it to children with intellectual disabilities. Since these individuals suffer from maladaptive skills functioning and slower than normal intellectual development (Hawkins, Eklund, James & Foose, 2003), even the think of teaching a foreign language to them seems impossible to many people.
Online learning or distant learning requires great dedication and self-discipline on the part of the student. A learning environment that requires students to set their own time lines or time management criteria can be very stressful and challenging for new students. Students, especially those new to higher education, may not yet have learned the skills to be able, in a sense, “teach themselves” (Bejerano). Many new students may have the assumption that distant learning may be easier and less demanding but studies show the contrary. Students that are unenthusiastic and ill equipped to apply the extra time an online class demands, will find themselves unsuccessful in distance
It is false to assume that if one can talk he can communicate. Because so much of our education misleads people into thinking that communication is easier than it is, they become discouraged and give up when they run into difficulty. Because they do not understand the nature of the problem, they do not know what to do. The wonder is not that communicating is as difficult as it is, but that it occurs as much as it does. No matter how good the communication systems in an operation are, communications barriers can and do often occur.
In terms of the Drawbacks of TPR method, this method is more suitable for beginners than higher levels. The kind of activities lead some students to feel unconventional who are reluctant to participate. Also it is easy to lose focus and overuse activities by both teachers and students. The TPR Method is somewhat limited within original expression of ideas. Owing to everything cannot be explained by actions, pictures and objects.
It prevents the students from language acquisition and interrupts their output. Speaking in big size of group is not more comfortable than speaking in small group. In addition, the amount of output is small in a big group. This means students cannot activate vocabulary enough. My opinion is based on Krashen’s theory.
tu dodat da ćemo se bavit samo educational psychology I samoregulacijom učenja, ne poučavanja Moreover, modern education supports self-regulated learning, firstly, due to the fact that the learner is put in the center of the learning process, and secondly, because the learner is able to acquire autonomy and confidence in learning. It is highly recommended for teachers to encourage self-regulated learning in classrooms and to provide a welcoming environment for learners to explore their learning skills and strategies (Zimmerman, 1986; Schunk, 2005; Sorić, 2014; Abdulhay, 2015). Furthermore, contemporary research has revealed that self-regulation is not only a very important aspect of learning but also a key to academic success (Zimmerman, 2008). Strong development of self-regulation does start in school, however, it is not only restricted to the classroom. Self-regulated learning is perceived as a relevant tool not only for academic purposes, but also for any other upcoming life situation where one needs to adapt and manage on
Furthermore their interest in reading is minimized as they cannot get the essence of what the text is saying. As the consequences, the students’ participation in English literary activities is the minimum. Teacher has to force the students to participate. One of the reasons for this limitation is, there are not many teachers who are well trained in the teaching of English phonetics in specific. This drawback has huge impact on reading and speaking ability of the students.
Argument 2.1 The value of education Education gives you the intellectual freedom. The main value of education is to improve how students view, exist in and participate in the world. It helps students to become better members of the society by teaching students’ morals, ethics and the societal responsibility. Without education students would be unable to understand the world they live in. According to my worldview education is important because it makes you self-independent and helps you to keep up with the world.
