This unit 11 teaching receptive skills taught me that in any language there are four basic skills: receptive skills- reading and listening and productive skills- speaking and writing. In teaching receptive skills comprehension tasks are very important. A good task shouldn't be too easy and shouldn't be too difficult. A quiet common activity is a jigsaw reading. Student share their ideas and complete tasks.This unit explored the different types of classes I might be required to teach. I learnt about how best to structure one on one classes, and how to teach a class full of young children. I learnt that children need a lot of repetition to grasp concepts and rules. I also discovered the benefits of getting children to colour and draw, an activity that they like doing, and link this to vocabulary and spelling.
