Group and pair work
This provides more opportunities for students to speak and participate. By working in groups, learners develop the skills of listening and co-operating and the teacher can evaluate progress and give help, advice and encouragement where and when it is needed. Also, if a learner is less confident, they can be involved in the lesson without worrying about having to ‘perform’ in front of their classmates.
Whether quizzes, board games or activities where learners physically respond to commands, the real purpose of ‘games’ is to provide an enjoyable and meaningful context to practice using specific language. Games also develop teamwork, turn-taking and co-operation.
This develops research skills and gives students an opportunity to focus on organising work and becoming more independent.
While involved in creative activities, students are learning to listen for specific information, instructions and to ask for help if necessary. Very young learners also develop observation and motor skills.
Stories are memorable and allow us to make links with other subjects your child may be studying at school, helping them build on their general education.
Songs, rhymes and chants (especially for the younger ones)
Young children live in a rhythmic world and the combination of words with the beat of a song or chant is an excellent way to learn the rhythm and pronunciation of English. Even as we get older, songs are an invaluable way of learning and consolidating new vocabulary and grammar.
