    English for very begineers

    Here’s how to teach English to beginners. Think back to your childhood. Do you remember when an adult asked you something and you just stared open-mouthed (not because you were trying to be rude or anything) because it was all gobbledygook to you? That’s exactly how ESL beginners feel in a language classroom. If the teacher starts rambling in a language they don’t understand, they’ll just get nervous and shut down. Woman at whiteboard with marker ready to writeYou’ve got a clean slate to start with when teaching English to complete beginners. In your first English lesson for beginners, adults or otherwise, you don’t want to scare the sh** out of your students. Put yourself in their shoes—how would you feel if some stranger starts saying weird stuff at you and expects you to reply in the same alien language? It’s nerve-wracking and mortifying, to say the least. Here’s everything you need to know when it comes to teaching English to complete beginners. (Don't have a provider lined up yet? Give Premier TEFL a look!) Why beginners are a little more challengingAbsolute beginners are a tough nut to crack because they have no previous knowledge of English. They’ll be coming to you raw, sometimes without knowing their ABC’s, numbers, and common phrases like “Hello!” and “Goodbye!” They won’t know what nouns and adjectives are or how to form a sentence or question. On the other hand, false beginners think they know English because of past exposure. For instance, they’ve spent countless hours studying the language but can’t hold an English conversation with a native speaker. It’s up to you to diagnose your students’ language proficiency levels and prepare teaching English to beginners material that works on the basics before you get into anything more advanced. 6 tips to get you throughGIF, Dr. Strange on knees begging Teach me. Beginners learning ESL be like… Still scampering around trying to plan teaching English to beginners material? Here are 6 steps to teach English to beginners like a pro! 1. Keep it simple, stupid.This is the one of the most important steps to teach English to beginners. Many newbie teachers make the mistake of using too much English when giving their students instructions, praise, or other feedback. For instance, saying, “You guys, now we’re going to look at a new structure today so let’s get those textbooks out” in ESL beginner lessons makes you sound like you’re from Mars. Instead, say something like this: “Take out your textbooks. Okay?” with an OK sign if it’s culturally appropriate in the country you’re teaching in. Gestures are super important and help beginners better understand even when the classroom English seems clear to you. This tip will save your life if you’re teaching English to complete beginners. 2. Always check for understanding.A rookie mistake many persons teaching English to complete beginners make is assuming that the students have understood the lesson or classroom instructions. In your first lesson for beginners, adults or kids, your students may not be accustomed to the Western way of schooling where students raise their hands if they don’t understand. Instead, they may be feel embarrassed to admit ignorance in front of the class and prefer to remain silent. When teaching beginners English, you need to read your students’ body language to gauge whether they’ve understood and keep checking whether they've understood by asking, “Okay?” Students will let you know directly or subtly whether they’ve got it or not. 3. Give them lots of time to practice.In ESL beginner lessons, you cannot expect your students to get it immediately. You need to provide lots of examples, check for understanding, and then ensure that your class has enough time to practice what you’ve just taught them. When teaching beginners English, this usually means drilling the students (making them listen and repeat the language structure several times after you) and then having them practice it individually or with other students. Make sure to let them know that it’s okay to mess up during practice time so they don’t feel pressured to be perfect on the first try. 4. Show, don’t tell.One of the steps to teach English to beginners is to show, not tell, in the classroom. Students will better understand what you’re trying to say if you use visual cues rather than spill a lot of words in their direction. What does this mean exactly? Instead of saying, “Let’s learn the passive tense” practice how to teach basic English by giving clear examples of the target language structure with simple drawings, pictures, short skits, and exaggerated gestures. [Are You Abroad Right Now? We Want to Interview You!]5. Always use positive reinforcement.Here’s another one of the steps to teach English to beginners. If someone gives an incorrect answer, don’t yell, “You’re wrong!” Never, ever embarrass a student in front of the entire classroom. You’ll scar him or her for life and he or she will hate English forever because of you. Instead, try to create a friendly atmosphere in the classroom by praising your students often, even when they make mistakes. For instance, when doing English teaching for beginners, if they get the word right but just mispronounce it, say something like, “Okay, good!” and then repeat the word with the correct pronunciation so that you don’t shame the student and the rest of the class gets to hear the right way to say it. 6. Don’t be boring.English teaching for beginners doesn’t have to feel like pulling teeth. Instead, use lots of games to encourage your students to practice and produce the language you’ve taught. Also incorporate your students’ interests so they want to learn! For instance, don’t use Garfield if they love Hello Kitty! Also, nothing’s more dull that making students read from the textbook and fill in lame worksheets with lots of text and zero images. The sky’s the limit regarding how to teach basic English: trawl the interwebs for awesome ideas that will keep your students engaged throughout the lesson.

Ready to get the ball rolling? Here are some awesome ideas to get you up and running regarding how to teach English to beginners! Lesson idea #1: Show (But Don’t Tell)Teaching English to beginners material doesn’t have to be uncool! This game is similar to the party game, Charades. It can be used as a warm up or to practice the target language structure (s) with any age group. It’s a gesture and speaking activity. Students get into pairs. One student gets a flash card with the vocabulary word but he or she cannot show it to the other student. This student must act out the word with gestures and without using words. For instance, if the flash card says “ball” the student has to act out “ball” and the other student has to guess the word before time runs out (1-2 minutes). The students then switch roles so that the first student gets to guess and the second student has to act. This activity can be graded informally regarding the number of students who guess the right answer within the time frame.

    3 Minute German - Free taster course

    Have you ever tried to learn German before and failed? 3 Minute German is like no other language course. The way this method works means you will succeed and be speaking German by the end of the first lesson. “I’m not very good with languages” I get told this all the time by new students who want to prepare me for how bad they are going to be at learning to speak German. No matter how bad you think you are with languages, no matter how bad you think your memory is, no matter how terrible you think you are at understanding German, you will be amazing with 3 Minute German. The way the 3 Minute German course is set out means you cannot fail. You will be building sentences in a logical, step-by-step method, learning words and phrases that you will be able to use when you go on holiday to a German speaking country. How does the method work? I break down the German language into its smallest components and then I show you how to build it back up into sentences. You will get plenty of opportunity to practise with the language and you will be amazed at how quickly you make noticeable progress. Can I really learn German in 3 minutes? I called the course 3 Minute German because three minutes is the perfect amount of time you need to learn anything. I’ve kept each video to around three minutes so that you can watch at least one video per day no matter how busy you are. It is much better to study for three minutes every day than to study for an hour once a week. If you stick to three minute chunks, you will find wonderful things start to happen with your language learning: 1. You’ll maintain your enthusiasmIf you want to learn anything, you have to maintain enthusiasm or else you won’t continue. If you limit your study time to just three minutes, you’ll keep German fresh and exciting and you’ll be eager to learn. If you spend hours studying, very quickly you’ll get bored with German and it’ll turn into a chore. 2. You’ll study more consistentlyIt’s much better to study for just three minutes once a day than to study for three hours once a week. A spare three minutes is relatively easy to find even in the most hectic of schedules. If you make sure you complete at least one three-minute study session every day, it’ll quickly become a habit that you’ll do without thinking. It’s much easier to fit in a daily three-minute habit than a weekly one hour habit. By doing this, you’ll become a much more consistent learner, and consistency is the key to success. 3. You’ll remember things betterThis is my favourite reason as to why you should limit your study to just three minute chunks. If you study something for just three minutes every day, you’ll trick your brain into memorising the information more quickly than if it were to see the information for hours each day. It’ll think, “I see this information every day so it must be important, but I don’t see it for very long so I’d better hold onto it and make it into a memory fast!” You’ll be amazed at how much more easily things tend to stay in your brain if you limit yourself to just three minutes a day. Sign up now and start speaking right away! So, if you want to learn to speak German quickly and with a simple method that you can use even if you have no free time at all, then give 3 Minute German a go and you’ll be very pleased you did. This is the free taster course for the 3 Minute German series, and it contains the first three lessons of the full course. All lessons are broken down into three minute chunks. Once you have completed this course, if you want to progress further, you can find “3 Minute German – Course 1” to learn even more German! Vielen Dank (thank you very much) Kieran

    Elementary English Course. Learn grammar and speak!

    Many English learners have difficulties in making correct sentences and speaking correctly. It is because the main trend in teaching English is not to learn grammar directly and strict ban on translation. It makes learning English impossible for beginners. To help beginners to learn English grammar and start speaking, I created easy, beautiful and effective lessons. I show a sentence structure and grammar elements in rainbow colors and pictures so that learners can understand without translation. After finishing Elementary and Basic English course my students considerably broaden their vocabulary, can make all types of correct English sentences with the auxiliary verb to be and start speaking about themselves, their family and their everyday life. Muchos estudiantes de inglés tienen dificultades para hacer oraciones correctas y hablar correctamente. Esto se debe a que la principal tendencia en la enseñanza del inglés no es aprender gramática directamente y prohibir estrictamente la traducción. Hace que aprender inglés sea imposible para los principiantes. Para ayudar a los principiantes a aprender la gramática del inglés y comenzar a hablar, creé lecciones fáciles, hermosas y efectivas. Muestro la estructura de una oración y los elementos gramaticales en colores del arco iris e imágenes para que los alumnos puedan entender sin traducción. Después de terminar el curso de inglés básico y básico, mis alumnos amplían considerablemente su vocabulario, pueden hacer todo tipo de oraciones correctas en inglés con el verbo auxiliar y comenzar a hablar sobre ellos mismos, su familia y su vida cotidiana.

    Liderazgo educativo en el aula

    Ante los retos que enfrentan las instituciones educativas como consecuencia de la sociedad del conocimiento y de la globalización en la que están inmersas, se requiere replantear el liderazgo educativo, buscar líderes que consigan traducir el planteamiento estratégico en ejecución operacional, función que engloba el análisis de la situación, la toma de decisiones, la capacidad de persuasión y las competencias relativas a la gestión de personas. Este curso “liderazgo educativo en el aula”, está basado en la ponencia de Gros et al (2013), presentada en el XXXII Seminario Interuniversitario de Teoría de la Educación sobre Liderazgo y Educación de la Universidad de Cantabria, Santander España, en la que alude la evolución que ha tenido el Liderazgo en distintas décadas, así en los 80 se distinguía por buscar líderes controladores con una visión racionalista y burocrática de las organizaciones, en tanto en los 90 centran la atención en líderes que tuvieran la capacidad de planificar y ejecutar estratégicamente, repensando conceptos, innovando en la organización y haciendo posible el crecimiento, en la actualidad aseveran las escuelas requiere una nueva visión del liderazgo, éste debe de ser de corresponsabilidad de los actores que intervienen: padres de familia, alumnos, directivos, profesorado y autoridades educativas. Mencionan también que el binomio liderazgo-educación se convierte en pertinente si nos lleva a la reflexión pedagógica de como asumirlo en los diferentes contextos educativos, así dividen el liderazgo educativo en tres dimensiones: pedagógico, distribuido y moral, las cuales están relacionadas y garantizan un liderazgo eficaz, reto de todo actor educativo.
