Tips for examinations

1/ write on the top of the examination paper your SURNAME (in CAPITAL LETTERS) and name as in the example: SMITH, John

2/ write the date and your class group

3/ if doing an exercise of matching items from 2 columns never use arrows.

4/ write clearly, that is, try a nice handwriting

5/ separate letters (h e l l o ) and words (How old are you? )

7/ please, do not make extremely small words!!

say, you say (English language classroom)

30 November 2019

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

English language
Classroom board:

The teacher writes a word on the blackboard:

say

 

what is this word?
is it a noun, a verb, a pronoun?

 

__it´s a verb

 

it is a verb. Right!
now, let´s see…
can we call this verb form INFINITIVE?
just say anything! The first idea you have…

 

__yes, it´s the infinitive

So, the Spanish translation is decir?

 

__yes, that´s it

 

No, that´s not right.
The infinitive of a verb, generally speaking, must be signalled by the particle to.

Q.A -oral assessment-

26 October 2019

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

Oral assessment is a must in a class of foreign language. I like the technique of Q. A (Question.Answer) to the students. To begin, the teacher provides some essential messages for communication by writing phrases on the board.

e.g: What´s your last name, Peter?

Immediately the teacher invites the choir of students to repeat the answer: Smith.

The MOODLE (@moodle) platform is useful to share these formulas. I have prepared some pages for beginners with an eye to this website:  www.7esl.com (answers to common English questions)
