The Importance Of Learning The Language

Register to read the introduction… For example, when grammar structure was being elicited during the language presentation five students tried to make quicker guesses about the target language pattern based on their intuition rather than on a systematic analysis of the language structure such as in “Footballers get paid too much” like “… isn’t they” instead of “don’t they”. On the contrary, I could observe that at least three students preferred to analyze the declarative stem pattern and tense before adding the accurate tag …show more content…
For instance, I observed that there was a student who constantly participated in each one of the tasks proposed by guessing the target language pattern without demonstrating any fear to make mistakes, namely, this learner felt encouraged and confident about discovering the language rules to correct her inaccurate attempts to construct tag questions. Conversely, there was a student who avoided participating when she was requested to because she did not feel confident about her understanding of the language pattern. In fact, when she uttered tag questions in her group she accurately produced them but she did not want to do it during whole-group interaction …show more content…
First of all, for the warmer activity I should increase the opportunities for visual, aural, kinesthetic learners to experiment different ways of learning. For instance, I will consider including visual games such as matching the statements, in which the sentence is read aloud, and visually represented for students to complete them. To foster more collaborative work than competition, I should also consider using information gap and mingling activities in which aural learners have the opportunity to exchange information and kinesthetic to move around the classroom while completing the task. Similarly, to support learners overcoming their inhibitions and increased their confidence about the language, I will prepare role-play and pair-work activities to encourage students to freely speak in the class while boosting their self-esteem by praising and reinforcing their accurate attempts to produce language. Additionally, I will discuss with the learners individually about their performance and suggest strategies to improve it. On the other hand, to present the target language I may consider not only to provide samples for learners to discover the rules behind the target language, but also supplying samples that focus learners on paying attention to details in the grammar structures to encourage impulsive
