Classroom language in Primary teaching
2004-09-18        作者(来源):龚慧

It is important that the class accept the use of English in the classroom as something normal right from the start. The idea that a foreign language is not only an area of learning but is also above all a means of communication should be made clear from the first session. It is important not to delay the use of English for classroom language and take advantage of the contextualized situations which exist in the classroom from day one .

Remember there are many everyday classroom situations including marking the beginning and end of the class, talking about classroom materials, talking about the sequence of activities and eliciting non-verbal responses. Try to use English in a natural way and avoid forcing the class or give verbal responses form the beginning . Non-verbal responses are just as good in showing how much the class have understood.

Make full use of gesture , mime, actions or any other extra-linguistic aid to make yourself understood and to give meaning to what is being said as far as the activity or language itself will allow. If you start to use English in the way outlined above, it may have the following positive effects on the learners’ attitude:

*They will react in a normal way and not be surprised when a member of the class talks to them in English during the session.

*They will get used to decoding messages and understanding from context.

*They will recognize that English has a true communicative value.
