Increase motivation • CLT provides the students with authentic and meaningful interaction
This increases their motivation and attitude to learn the target language…
Fluency and Accuracy • CLT gives equal importance to both the spoken language and the accuracy of the production.
Real- life contexts • Students have to produce and receive language in different real-life contexts.
Students’ Sense of Autonomy • In this student-centered class the focus is on the interests of the students.
Students will have the opportunity to learn about their learning styles.
In-Class Activity • Tell your students that you are going to tell them a very simple story about your country
Brainstorming ( warm-up )Ask them to write the first word that comes to their minds
Ask each student to read aloud his/her words • Each student has to share his/her words with another student
Use paper cards in which you already wrote the simple sentences of the story
Divide your students into two groups. • Ask each group to choose an English name or logo for their group.
Divide the blackboard into two parts. • Ask one of each group to write the name of his/her group.
Each group have to read the whole cards they have well. They have to help each other.
Ask one of the groups to start the activity by selecting one from the other group to dictate him/her on the board.
The one who dictates has to repeat the words as many times as the other student needs to write the words correctly.
The teacher draws stars on the board after the dictation for each correct word.
Then the other group turn comes as they have to choose one from the other group.
The teacher collects the points for each group to see which group is the winner…
Engaging students in an activity will increase their motivation…and therefore their learning…
