Getting students to talk

Have a think about your students. Discuss with the members of your group:

  • How comfortable are they when speaking in English? How fluent? How grammatically accurate?
  • What are the differences with other students in non-bilingual groups in terms of their aural reception skills and oral production?
  • Do you have to dumb down your language so that they can understand you?
  • Do they speak English among them while interacting in class?
