Is it easier to teach English to children or adults? - ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ TEFL FAQs

Productive and Receptive Skills in the ESL Classroom - Game Example 'Jeopardy'   The next example of a game that we can adapt very easily for classroom use is the game of Jeopardy and in this particular game, what we can do is to have a set of levels for our questions, I'd say one through five, where one is going to be the easiest example and five is going to be the most difficult and then, in each of these sets of boxes, we can have various grammar points, such as tenses, perhaps modals, vocabulary and maybe even conditionals.

5 Simple Ideas on Teaching Grammar - TEFL Blog


Fri, 02 Aug 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas 5 Simple Ideas on Teaching Grammar I think of myself as having been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to learn other languages at a young age. I was taught French in primary school and at home, I learned or acquired Spanish. At school, I remember my language teacher being very textbook-oriented and she focused and followed the book to the "T". I picked up easily on the grammar because I had already learned Spanish at home and I was also very keen to learn foreign languages, especially French. The grammar didn't seem difficult or boring to me at all because I had already been exposed to the language at a very early age.

Why Receptive and Productive Skills are Important for Language Learning - TEFL Blog


Mon, 29 Jul 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas Why Receptive and Productive Skills are Important for Language Learning The process of learning a new language is complex and time-consuming. As the demand for learning a new language increases or rather the process of learning the primary language in a given society is taken into consideration, methods to teach become variable, as the most optimal way of learning is sought after. This does not always result most efficiently, however.
