Listed Below Are Some Tips To Teach ESL/EFL Efficiently: Checking Understanding : It is quite vital to check on students to see if they have understood or not, because it’s unlikely for them to ask the teacher.

Listed Below Are Some Tips To Teach ESL/EFL Efficiently: Communicating to others in English: This fosters a better learning environment for students as they tend to learn from fellow students and increases their practise time while the teacher presides over the whole activity . Guessing answers: The students know much more than they think they know. It’s probably likely that they’ve seen or heard a word or phrase but they don’t remember it consciously. It is the teachers’ duty to get them to make a guess; the chances are that they will get it right very often. If they are put into pairs or small groups the chances are that with their combined passive knowledge they’ll get most of the answers right, though they won’t know how they did it. The rise in their confidence is half the battle won with speaking a foreign language. www.teflindia.com

Alternatively, don’t stop it too soon because not everyone will have had a chance to speak or guess the answers or they’ll feel cheated . Feedback: Getting feedback from the students makes it easier for the teacher to check how they deal with the exercise. A teacher doesn’t only need to get the answer, but also checks the process involved. www.teflindia.com

Listed Below Are Some Tips To Teach ESL/EFL Efficiently: Dealing with vocabulary queries: This can be a good way to check the progress of students. When a student asks the teacher to explain the meaning of a word, it shouldn’t be done right away. Ask other students if anyone can explain it. It is a good idea to get the students to try to guess the meaning of the word from the context where the word lies . Monitoring: While the students are busy doing an activity, the teacher can walk slowly round the classroom and listen to their conversations. This will provide the teacher with the opportunity to hear how the students are dealing with the activity and notice their pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar points that may be causing difficulty. www.teflindia.com
