Quick Tip: Get ESL and EFL Students Involved

It can be easy for a teacher to forget that students need to do a lot of practice in the ESL and EFL classrooms.  Rather than try to coax students to talk and get involved in the lessons, it may seem easier to just lecture and give explanations.

You really should try to get students more involved.  Have them talk more and focus on STT (student talk time).  They could even pick an activity or theme for the day's lesson.  By giving them control, they will feel that they have more choice in the matter and will be more likely to learn.

Got an idea for a quick tip?
Email me with your quick tip, name, and website (if you have one) and I'll post it ASAP.
