ESL with Emotional Intelligence

ESL with Emotional Intelligence

The author has kindly given us permission to release this version of her book fro FREE during Ramadan. She has been a teacher, trainer and an academic coordinator in the English Language department for a prestigious University. Her latest training program has been accreditted by Ofqal as a level 5 Diploma. This latest work is a unique way to support people acquiring the English language. The key to successful English language is reading and writing. One of the struggles with ESL students is an intrinsic awareness of not wanting to look foolish when speaking another language. Writing journals are a great way to get a student engaged in the art of writing. What strengthens this process is when the writing is relatable and supports the development of the individual. The journals cater for ESL students with prompts related to the four intelligences, making it easy for them to write and minimising the effective filter. The journals are an excellent source for differentiated teaching and self-learning, as the subject matter is the most popular one amongst nearly all students…. Themselves. Suad Mohamed

Astronaut Jim - reading comprehension with True / False questions and creative activity

Astronaut Jim - reading comprehension with True / False questions and creative activity

This activity is for young ESL learners (aged 7 - 14). It is useful due to the fact that it deals with space vocabulary, repeats new words several times in the text to ensure that the words stick and has pictures that help children follow what is happening in the story. For stronger students, they will not need the pictures, but weaker students can use this to their advantage. The True / False questions aid their reading comprehension. You can also monitor their pronunciation as you can ask them to read out loud. Learning Objectives: To use the space vocabulary studied. To understand how an English story is set out on the page. To practise the present simple tense. To apply preexisting vocabulary to a new theme (colours to space for example) How I used this worksheet/recommended: Teach vocabulary to do with space (I used flashcards for this). Ask students what life is like on a different planet (elicit the words scary, exciting, fun etc.) Tell students that we are going to read a story about aliens. Children read out loud in turns. Children do the True/False by themselves. Correct as a class. Children ‘wind down’ by designing their own planet with aliens and labelling it. (Practises writing skills) This is an excellent activity which was received well by all my students, ranging from 7 to 12.
