How to Deal with Different Types of Students - TEFL Blog


Tue, 18 May 2021 Shirin Sophy Alumni Experiences How to Deal with Different Types of Students Despite the rising parents' education attainment and the high level of awareness, they show towards their offsprings' nurture, students' misbehavior is still a controversial aspect of pedagogy. As teachers, what we are dealing with today is supposed to be a generation of well-brought-up juveniles craving for personal development, but the truth appears to be slightly different. Even though some believe that teachers are simply losing their authority as a result of lax school discipline approaches, many reasons hidden behind students' misbehavior can easily be recognized and dealt with. There is, of course, a very wide range of reasons for students' misbehavior, but we're going to go through...  [Read more]

How to Deal with Sensitive Situations in the Classroom - TEFL Blog


Wed, 15 Jul 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences How to Deal with Sensitive Situations in the Classroom Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) involves dynamic, cross-cultural English language instruction, requiring a level of intentional, service-oriented cultural sensitivity and awareness with new English learners that may not be so readily understood or relevant with native speakers from the United States of America. Beyond the memorization of rote grammar, language proficiency, public speaking, reading comprehension, and other elements of linguistic aptitude, there must first be a deliberate recognition of the unique challenges of a non-native speaker of the English language.

Teaching Beginner Students and Students with Learning Difficulties - TEFL Blog


Tue, 16 Jun 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas Teaching Beginner Students and Students with Learning Difficulties Teaching can be difficult or very easy, but either way, it is fun.As a tutor, I have experienced teaching beginner students for the past two years. Beginner students have a huge difference between classmates. Some have already known many words when they even have not started their primary school life. Some of them do not know the 26 alphabets when their primary school life has already started, so when you put them into the same class, it is quite challenging for teachers to prepare materials. However, on the bright side, younger students tend to learn fast so they can easily catch up with other students. Table of Contents Let me share one of my experiences. Do you...  [Read more]

Hanging on Every Word: The Importance of Cultural Sensitivity in the EFL Classroom - TEFL Blog


Fri, 26 Jun 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas Hanging on Every Word: The Importance of Cultural Sensitivity in the EFL Classroom The student sitting in front of his teacher was upset, unwilling-- perhaps unable-- to engage in the classroom activity taking place around him. The task seemed harmless enough-- a simple game of hangman to solidify vocabulary retention-- but had left this student paralyzed. The student's teacher, my friend Tom, did not press the issue but rather waited to have a conversation with his student until after class when all of the other students had left for the day. "Teacher, my brother died. The army hangs him." Tom was devastated. In his attempt to provide a playful opportunity for learning, he had forced a student to relive a trauma that had forever...  [Read more]

Pronunciation and Phonology in the EFL Classroom - Place of Articulation Pt. 1   Place of articulation deals with the placement of the vocal organs when producing a sound. Before we can cover the particulars of places of articulation, we'll need to take a look at the various vocal organs and their locations. Moving from the front to the back we'd begin with our lips. We can use both lips in order to create a sound or we can use one of our lips with one of our rows of teeth, usually the top, in order to produce another sound. We also have other sounds, which use both of the rows of teeth. Further back we have what's called the alveolar ridge.

5 Factors Influencing The Choice of Activities for Students With Shorter Attention Spans - TEFL Blog


Wed, 05 Aug 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas 5 Factors Influencing The Choice of Activities for Students With Shorter Attention Spans First of all, I notice that adults have a bigger focus on what the teacher is saying and doing during the lesson, than the kids or teenagers. It is because, in my opinion, adults realize why they need to study English. For example, they will be able to find a better job or they may get an enhancement. So they know it is one of the important goals for them for a particular period of their life. And speaking about kids, they are too young first of all. They do not have a clue what is a goal and why they need it. The only thing they know is that their parents want them to study well, but it's not enough in a lot of cases.

Some people would say it is an easy peasy job; just stand right there giving instructions on the front of a couple of students.
