Teaching Methodology for a General English Class
A typical general English class at Insight will be structured in the following way:
- General conversation & past tense
Each class is started with a past tense speaking exercise to ensure students can function using this tense. The activity will increase in difficulty as the course progresses.
- Review of new vocabulary from previous class
Students review all new vocabulary which was taught in the previous class.
- Review of structures as a speaking exercise
A review of any new grammatical structures taught in the previous class will follow the review of new vocabulary. This will be done as a speaking exercise, encouraging students to speak as much as possible.
- Homework check
Any homework assigned will be checked by the teacher, together with the student, to ensure understanding and correct any misunderstandings.
- New material
The teacher will introduce new material and teach new topics which the student has not yet covered. This will be done as a speaking exercise following a method of ‘Presentation’, ‘Practice’ and ‘Production’.
The first stage is the presentation of an aspect of language in a context that students are familiar with, ensuring the students are comfortable with any new grammar or vocabulary taught before moving onto the next stage.
The second stage is practice, where students will be given a speaking activity that gives them plenty of opportunities to practice the new aspect of language and become familiar with it whilst receiving appropriate assistance from the teacher.
The final stage is production where the students will use the language in context, in a speaking activity set up by the teacher who will give minimal assistance allowing the student to produce the language themselves.
If required, students can work together with the teacher through activities to reinforce what has just been taught.
- Lesson Review
A short review of the lesson will then commence to ensure the student has full understanding of the topic taught.
- Future Tense
As a natural end to the lesson, the student will practice a short speaking activity based around future tense.
All general English classes at Insight focus on maximising student speaking time. We ensure the students talk as much as possible in class. This allows them to build grammatical accuracy, fluency and confidence in a variety of English situations. We focus on their needs and support them through their learning journey, in order to allow them to develop naturally into high-level general English users.
