Teaching and Learning ESL Grammar is not that boring
« on: February 25, 2018, 05:35:39 PM »
Learning grammar can be a matter of great fun, too. Shared is a learning outcome from Unit-1 of New Headway Upper Intermediate Fourth Edition while revisiting 'Tense' in a novel way incorporating Tasks after Tasks appropriate of local context to bring out a better upshot. Students thought, fought, cried, applied, created and cursed me for giving them extra burden of these personalised creative 'tasks'. But how much did they know that they need changes in their 'way of learning'-- do they really learn is a big question, though,  and that they direly need to shun rote-learning. And when they do that, learning becomes exemplary and teaching stands for a worthy profession, too.

Thank you.
Thought of sharing this little attempt with my fellow-colleagues at DIU. Please follow the link:
