Productive and Receptive Skills in the ESL Classroom - Receptive Skills - Potential Problems


This video focuses on the potential problems in a reading and listening lesson. Every teacher should be aware of these potential problems to be able to recognize the students' difficulties and prevent the issues from happening.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

The two videos for this unit were important to view because of the differences in the lessons. I learned that in the first video, the students had no idea what the teacher was wanting them to do. In the second video, the teacher clarified what he wanted so that the students understood what he was trying to teach them. Clarification makes a big difference in teaching.I have learnt from this unit the main points of teaching English. such as: -Students need to be exposed to the language -understand its meaning -understand how it is constructed and be able to put it into practice What I have also learnt that grammar is only the base but vocabulary makes the language itself beatiful and without it the language does not really work.
