  1. Hi everyone! I am currently conducting research on effective second language teaching. I would highly appreciate your input on the subject through this survey. https://goo.gl/forms/4SUjJQmc3iFELFwq2 All responses are anonymous. Please let me know if you have any further questions or would be interested in reading/discussing the paper once published. Alicia H
  2. Hi there, I am a foreign language teacher in my country. I have some questions to you experienced teachers out there. - 1.Should I teach the class only in the studied language? If I do, don't grammar explanations become too complex and overwhelming? You have to understand both the grammar and the new words, used to explain it. Especially in lower levels, and especially for students, who haven't learned the words well enough. Also, sometimes quite a bit of new words are given in one class visit; if you explain all the word meanings in the studied language, it will take too much time and we might not be able to take the material for the day. - 2.Should they translate the texts to their mother language, or not? Of course it's good to teach them to think directly in the new language, but I've noticed that without translation the students quite often don't understand very clearly the meaning of some complex sentences or idiomatic expressions. Is there a point in reading, if they don't understand? And if they can't understand a text, how are they supposed to understand when someone is talking to them face to face? Thanks a lot! Any responses appreciated.
  3. Hello everyone, I am new to this board, maybe I can use this opportunity to introduce myself. I am Maarten, 24 years of age and I live in The Netherlands. Actually I speak Dutch fluently, but my girlfriend doesn't. She lives in Macedonia, and is eager to learn Dutch. We communicate with eachother in English, and she speaks French and German as well. Now Dutch is, (to put it very broad) a mix of English and German grammar, with some French vocabulary, so you can imagine Dutch isn't the hardest language for her to learn. But what should I look out for when teaching her Dutch? I notice myself that I struggle explain certain sentences, since you can translate a sentence in a literal and a figurative way. For example: "Ik loop vandaag naar school" means "I am walking to school today.". While in Dutch, it literally says" "I walk today to school", which is incorrect in English,m but correct in Dutch. How do you explain the difference in sentence structure? I am struggling to find a coherent explanation for it, maybe because it is second nature for me. Also, I am eager to learn different methods for me to practice with my girlfriend, to make it more enjoyable and exciting for the both of us. Note, we do call and videocall, but we cant see eachother in person, which sometimes is a bit of a struggle. I am looking forward to your responses. Greetings, Maarten
  4. In a vast yet diversified country like India where dialect and languages vary for every couple of hundred kilometres, English and Hindi remain among the most widely spoken, understood and recognized languages. Along these two languages, English generally connects a lot of people who hail from areas where spoken local languages are completely different from each other i.e. Tamil and Marathi. In such cases, English acts the bridge between the individuals and enables them incommunicating with each other easily.

Generally English is considered as a funny language because its pronunciations and vocabulary vary alot. Often similarly spelt words have different pronunciations and alphabets remain silent in many words which make the pronunciations very peculiar and it takes consistent time and effort to remember and master them. This primarily happens because roots of large quantum of English wordsoriginate from other languages like Latin, French, Spanish etc. This trait also adds lot of diversity to the language and makes it easy for people across the globe to adapt it.

  12. I used to be a language tutor and the most difficult thing for me was teaching children. I wonder what are the best methods to deal with 7 to 10 year-olds? For me, the biggest challenge was that it's their parents who made the decision. The children themselves are often not interested in a foreign language, they are already overloaded with school programme and all they want to do is play lego or go for a walk with friends. And I entirely sympathise with that but what can I do? I was hired to teach them, not to play with them. I tried my best to introduce some games and fun elements into the lessons but I couldn't completely overlook grammar exercises and other "boring" bits. Is there something that really works when you try to teach children?
  13. I'm about to graduate with my Bachelors in about 4 weeks. I'm considering getting a TEFL certification post-graduation and traveling around for a while teaching English. I feel it would be both a great way to impact the lives of others, while at the same time being able to travel and experience other cultures. I'm still very fresh to the concept, though, so I was wondering if I could pick the brains of those who already have/already are working this route. For those who have experience in TEFL, what did you learn that you wish someone would have told you before you started? If you could go back, would you choose this same route all over again? What tips would you give someone like me, who is at the very onset of this path?
