It is an amazing session.I have noticed many new things to make my students break down the routine,by practising sports inside the classroom.Also, it is a great opportunity to lesson to native speakers and how do they present their lessons.Finally, I think it is a good experience and I would like our teachers offer an opportunity to share our ideas at the end of lesson.Thank you dear teachers.See you soon.

As I wrote this morning regarding Paul's lesson, the course viewed both as an entirety as well as individual lessons is very enlightening and rewarding. Sylvia - so much thanks to you for connecting at linkedup! Otherwise I would have never found out about all of this... A magnificent illlustration of how one positive thing can lead to another! Keep up the good work guys ;-)

1) Talking, I can improve my fluency and have a better idea of the areas of the language I'm weaker on (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation ...) and need to work on more. Listening, I can learn new words used in context, gather lots of examples of language strings and learn how words are pronounced differently by various speakers

(1) From talking I gain practice in pronunciation, the opportunity to be corrected, and to realize bymyself if there is something wrong. From listening you gain new vocabulary, and different rhythms.

(2)If the other person pays attention and comments when needed. If they just listen and don´t speak you get the impression they don´t care.

1. From Talking I take the feedback of my tone of voice, pronunciation, intonation, in other others, if I am really giving the message I want to.

From Listening: it will help me develop my language intuition and putting lots of correct sentences in my head. Then, I can imitate and produce similar sentences to express the meaning I want.

a. I think I gain from listening is to get thoughts, ideas and even felling and emotions, at the same time I gain from talking is to share my thoughts, ideas and felling exchange listening and talking is the best way to communicate with other people.

Listening gives us knowledge of new words and ideas while as talking makes us confident of any language.
When someone is showing expressions like nodding head in positive and negative points in a way that is confirming the speech.

Profile Summary

I've been teaching, training, and creating content in English language teaching for the past fifteen years. In WizIQ, I design and run free and open courses for teachers and students around the world. Check out the songs and videos I make as Fluency MC and follow and connect with me here in WizIQ. It's all about how far we REACH when we TEACH!

In my experience, the best way to build a base of knowledge in a foreign language is to follow the 3Rs: Relax, Repeat, Remember. When activities are engaging and provide multiple exposures to target language, we're more likely to remember language with accuracy and use it with fluency. We can then build upon this base to achieve our communicative goals.

I've spent the past several years networking and collaborating with amazing online teachers around the globe. I'm excited to showcase their talents in the virtual classrooms of WizIQ. I hope you'll join us!
