Get Involved – Have Fun

Start the day with high energy activities, as lethargy breeds boredom. This will help with classroom participation and bring the fun-factor into learning. However, you must be careful not to create hyped up students as this can cause havoc to the lesson plan and any routine you wish to adhere to. Aim for a balance; off-set reflective time with interactive activities.

A good activity to do with older students is to split them into three teams and give two teams four pieces of paper, some paperclips, sell-o-tape and a pair of scissors each. Then ask them to build the tallest free standing structure in ten minutes. The other team will observe and make notes on how the two teams worked together – what was positive and negative. This activity needs teamwork and by having a team making observations at the end re-iterates how they worked together.

Brainstorming

This is a great way to get students to learn and practise vocabulary, give the class a topic and ask them to write down all the words they know related to that topic. Alternatively, you could split the class into groups and ask them to work together in English to come up with a list of words and then they can report back to you as a group. You can use brainstorming to warm up the class at the start of a lesson or even at the end to see what they’ve learnt from the lesson. A way to keep your class on their toes is to ask them about topics from past lessons; if you’re really confident, ask them about a lesson which occurred a month ago – this will help re-enforce the language. While studying tefl courses london being the capital of the U.K is at the forefront of any new techniques in teaching, therefore, you will be well place to succeed in the future.

Remember: the classroom should be a supportive environment. Nurture and understand your students and you will become a very successful tefl tesol teacher.
