The sound in real- life conditions is much better.

A few advice to teachers regarding the communicative approach and its application in online teaching:

  • Focus on meaningful communication!
  • Don’t teach about the language but THE LANGUAGE!
  • Focus on Skill Using and not Skill Getting!
  • Prepare only assignments and conversational topics that are interesting for the students!
  • Don’t be afraid to talk. A lot of TTT (Teacher Talking Time) is not negative. Learners acquire second language mainly through listening to “comprehensible input” (Krashen)!
  • Focus more on Communicative competences and less on Grammatical competence!
  • Focus on Vocabulary more than Grammar!
  • Teach language through Collocations and their use in authentic contexts.

Idei pentru o lectie de engleza pentru afaceri (XIII)

If your intermediate/upper-intermediate student can listen to /watch it twice, you can ask him/her to say what she was speaking about.

Then you can use the text of what a person involved in Ann DeVere’s program, Dr. Beverly Tillman, Founder LEAP of Faith, says(the words/collocations in bold can be taught/practiced):

“Four weeks into Ann’s Richest Niche program, I have hit the spot and that is the target. I know who my target, niche and most profitable customer is and how to get to them!
Now, what I found is that previously I was at best guessing who they were and not understanding what they wanted or how to easily get to them, but Ann’s program solved this dilemma. I now know specifically who my customer is, what they want and how to reach them easily.

I would say that if your business is not where it should be by now, this program is most likely the only program that will put you on the right track.
And further more she doesn’t just teach you how to determine your niche, but she teaches you a “system” so that when you decide to branch out into other niches you will know exactly how to do this and how to determine who they are. In other words, once she shows you how, you know forever how to go about determining your niche.
Don’t be one of the many business owners who keeps on insisting “my target is ‘everybody’ or ‘anybody’ who…”. Does that sound familiar? So if you are still saying that and your business is still not blooming, you most likely do not have the target market. See Ann and she will put you on the right track. Yes, she is “pushy” till she is able to push you in the right direction. Three cheers for the work she is doing!”

A democratic teacher: Proposals for the class today

Yesterday I was criticized by an old student, a medical doctor whose language learning aptitudes are much under the average level that I often have too challenging classes. So, from today I am going to present proposals like this at the beginning of each class and I at that class I will work on the topics selected. This one is for a psychologist:

Proposals for the class today:

  • Grammar in context, discussing and fixing problems of grammar that block correct communication
  • ESP- English for Specific Purposes- talking about Psychology
  1. Careers in psychology
  2. Motivational theories (Maslow, Herzberg)
  3. Psychology and teaching
  • Writing skills: Learning to write essays, presentations, connecting ideas and paragraphs: The Connecting Words (however, on the other hand, as a result, etc.)
  • Learning about English language certificates/ The Listening paper- TOEFL vs. IELTS
