TESOL Videos - How to Pronounce 'THOROUGH' - English Pronunciation
In this episode, we cover the pronunciation of the word thorough. This word is used as an adjective and means being careful about detail. The word comes from the Middle English word thorow, which came from the Old English thurh.
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.
There are various theories in teaching students of all ages and cultures. All theories can be applied depending on the age range and how effective it can be. It is the job of the teacher to realize the most effective techniques for high efficient learning and understanding of a different language. As well as, every teacher needs a basic knowledge of the cultural background of students where the teachers are teaching to be able to be effective when teaching another language. The ESA method is simple but at the same time allows versatile methods in learning to maximize learning and understanding. In summary, by engaging a student, it helps pick the interest of the students for a new lesson even if the activity is not directed to the lesson. Though, the study stage will be easier if the engage stage is not directly related to the lesson. The study stage however needs to be approached carefully for the attention of the students to remain interested in the lesson no matter what the topic. Various subtle activities will help students to be semi-engaged and let them acquire learning new knowledge and pieces of information while improving their already acquired ones. The activate stage allows the students to apply what they have learned thus letting their new knowledge be put to use and see how much they have improved. I believe, this stage is the most important because it will build the confidence of the students every after lesson in enabling them to speak in English in the correct form. Application of new knowledge will always remain better when learners apply what they have learned rather than not applying them at all.
