How To Teach English As A Second Language
This VideoJug film will teach you the basic information and tips that you need to know on how to teach English as a second language.
Hi, I am Carolina Massie from Greater London Tutors, and I am going to give you some information on how to teach certain subjects. So these are the basics on how to teach English. English can be divided up into different sections: Speaking, Writing, Reading and Listening.
And sometimes it's a good idea to divide up what you're teaching into one of these categories. It's a good question to ask yourself whether you're working toward a particular exam, and cater whatever you're teaching towards that particular exam. A good place to start is the alphabet.
You can break it down phonetically, A B C D, etc. Then, a good place to start is basic grammar in the present and go from there, and build up on the grammar gradually. Warm up games.
For example, you can brainstorm vocabulary. Write it down on the board and then get different students to start using that vocabulary in basic sentences to build up in order to develop conversations. Role play is giving the students basic sentences that they can use in those role play games.
It's a good idea to divide the vocabulary up into different topics. For example, holidays, my house, hospital, my job, etc. And that it's just a great way to teach vocabulary.
You can focus on pronunciation. It's important to find current texts that are suitable for their level, whether they be literary texts or current magazines or newspapers. There are plenty of resources you can use online.
For example, Webcourse Tools, Moodle, the Bitesize website. Encourage your students to read as much as possible. They can watch films and television programs in that language.
And be sure to adopt a multisensory approach, using as many different tools as you can, whether they be audio or visual. Another good thing to talk about is your own experience in your country of birth. So that might be a conversation starter.
And you can relate to that, your experience in the country where you're teaching if you're teaching abroad. So here are some basic tips on how to teach English as a second language. .
