Methods of teaching esl efl

Methods of Teaching ESL \ EFL





1 grammar translation method

1. Grammar-translation method

  • It involves translating words and sentences from a text into the mother tongue (the native language).

  • Classes are taught in the students' mother tongue, with a little active use of the target language.

  • Grammar rules are taught deductively.

2 direct method

2. Direct method:

  • It involves associating objects or visual presentations with the word or phrase in the language being learned.

  • The mother tongue is NEVER used.

  • Grammar rules learned inductively.

  • Teacher must speak the target language.

3 audio lingual method

3. Audio-lingual method:

  • It is based on the principle that language learning is habit formation. Itinvolves the repeated practice of words and phrases through drills and dialogues.

  • The method fosters dependence on mimicry, memorization of set phrases and over-learning.

  • There is a focus on correct sentence forms and correct pronunciation.

4 communicative approach

4. Communicative approach:

  • It emphasizes speaking and listening, but with the teacher providing authentic language and authentic situations.

  • Learners practice the language through role-play, games and pair work.

  • Grammar is taught inductively.

Teachers should ensure that children are provided with a variety of interested and useful tasks. Here are some important tips for planning activities:

  • Art activities should be suitable for students’ ages and abilities.

  • Differentiate your activities to improve different skills.

  • Divide the students into effective groups (small number with different abilities).

  • Know when to teach some aspects of art as a discreet subject.

  • Give the students a chance to choose the task and the martials.

The importance of science in the primary school

The importance of science in the primary school:

  • The importance of including science was under debate for many years. Science did not become accepted at school until the late 19th century.

  • Modern developed countries need their education systems to produce well-qualified scientist and technologists who will be the researchers of tomorrow.

  • Science is a very interesting and important subject to learn as it arouses children’s curiosity about the nature and whatever happens in our every day life.

  • Science helps the children to understand better about their own sense organs, living and non-living things, energy, electricity and so on.
