TESOL Videos - How to Pronounce 'PERSEVERATE'- English Grammar
In this episode, we cover the pronunciation of the word perseverate. This word refers to the continuity of something, especially repitition.
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
This unit focused on teaching new language structures, and the four things that students need to be able to do with the new language. These four things are: to be exposed to it, understand its meaning, understand how it is constructed, and to be able to practice and produce it. I also learned about the different type of lesson focuses and what approach works best for each of these focus. The focus can be on teaching vocabulary, introducing grammatical structures, or teaching language functions such as \"inviting\" or \"suggesting.\" Within each of these lessons, I learned what students will need to know during these lessons and why each of these focuses are so important. For example, students would need to know a few things about a vocabulary item such as the meaning, use of the word, the grammar of the word, the interaction with other words, spelling, and pronunciation. Therefore, it is important to use engage, study, and activate for all of these lessons appropriately and in a targeted way. Generally, vocabulary and grammar lessons could use \"straight arrow\" ESA lesson approaches. Language functions and grammar lessons are also great for patchwork or boomerang lessons. What is important is that the students get a wide variety of exposure for each lesson. Finally, I learned what type of activities work best for each lesson. For example, in a grammar lesson, the \"study\" phase should focus on proper grammar building so activities such as gap fills or sentence building would be well suited for that particular lesson, while other activities, such as crosswords, would be better suited for the \"study\" phase in a vocabulary lesson.
