Students can use the language to fulfil a real purpose, which can make students both more independent and confident. • Students can also develop a much wider knowledge of the world through CBI which can feed back into improving and supporting their general educational needs. • CBI is very popular among EAP (English for Academic Purposes) teachers as it helps students to develop valuable study skills such as note taking, summarising and extracting key information from texts. • Taking information from different sources, re-evaluating and restructuring that information can help students to develop very valuable thinking skills that can then be transferred to other
Furthermore, they encourage teachers to adopt creative teaching approach because it is a good resource that the language is used for real life by real people. Glimore (2007) and Sherman (2003) agree that authentic materials have a strong positive effect on motivation. Motivation is regarded as the key element in success of learning in general and in learning languages in particular. Authentics materials help increase students’ motivation for learning English because they feel what they are practicing a real language beyond the classroom. It can be said that has positive effect on students’ motivation and encourage them to learn language better.
On this occasion, the teacher should create an enjoyable and exciting atmosphere in teaching speaking at the elementary school so that students will not be afraid to admit their mistakes and will receive criticism. One of the ways to solve the problems of young learners in learning speaking is by using games. This media can help the students to develop their ability. Based on Piaget and Vygotsky theory, the child or young learners are an active, thinker, and social learner. They love learning by playing with other friends.
Hence, debate is a method of language learning which is applicable not only to improve the students’ speaking skill but also critical thinking. In addition, debate is potential to develop students’ critical thinking and speaking skill. This statement is supported by Walker and Warhust (2000) who claim that debates in the classroom have been effective in increasing critical thinking by letting students connect as they learn subject
I really like the idea of Cloze Procedure that will be helpful to students by providing context clues or choosing the words from the list, and fill up the blanks in the appropriate context. These strategies help students to hone language and content
By repeating the words and phrases they become familiar with them and they are able to say with increasing fluency. Therefore, role play can improve students’ speaking skill by using the correct pronunciation and speaking fluently. To conclude, in English language teaching, there are many ways that can be apply in the classroom. But one of the best way for make student not getting bored and make students interesting in learning process is trough role play. Most importantly, role play can build the confidence, and the confidence level
The roles of English Literature in the language curriculum at schools are inevitably vital to the students. Most of the teachers are well aware of the importance of the Literature teaching to the students due to its help in broadening the students’ perspective about the beautiful content of English as a language and as a learning subject. Based on the study, it was found that teacher’s guidance inside and outside classrooms is very important to attract the students’ attention and interest to learn the subject. Learning Literature is in fact encourages students to read more and by doing so they will unconsciously increase their vocabulary. By improving on vocabulary, the students can write better and in a more correct way.
On the other hand, there are many opportunities in CALL classes that students can use to communicate with their teachers and peers so that they gain more self-confidence, promote cooperative learning, learn on their own speed, and become autonomous learners. They can benefit from fantastic capabilities related to language learning to improve and reinforce learning such as using grammar and spelling checkers, listening to an audio two or more times, getting instant feedback from computers to monitor their own learning, communicating with native speakers around the world (if network is available), sending their assignments to teachers and getting feedback, getting help from mother tongue (if necessary) via bilingual dictionaries, access to a vast amount of information on a special issue,
There are some suggested principles from well-known researchers to follow such as: Ellis (2005), Dörnyei (2013), Richards (2006), Kumaravadivelu (2003), Raja (2012), Rahnama, Fatehi Rad & Bagheri (2016) and they was used in order to evaluate this coursebook. Those mentioned principles are below: 1. The coursebook will take advantage of opportunities for students to speak in classroom. According to Goh (2007), speaking skills plays a key role in acquiring L2 language and develops communication skills. Therefore, the more opportunities of interaction in L2 language learning students achieve, the more ability of proficiency students can develop.
EFL teachers are also responsible for providing students with more opportunities to practice positive social skills and personality traits. It could be done by specifying some assertive and autonomy training sessions for learners in order to make learners aware of these issue in language learning. EFL teachers should also provide friendly and supportive behavior in order to ensure that students feel comfortable and have confidence to produce language. The results of this study are useful for EFL learners in a sense that they can achieve success in language learning simply by developing positive personality factors such as assertiveness and autonomy. Assertiveness help learners to state their opinions freely, besides learner autonomy lead them to take the initiative role in their learning so that they can learn more things and learn better than people who sit at the feet of teachers.
