Tips during examinations for the student of English language

2 December 2019

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

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.
Use numbers and letters to match both items such as: 1.b 2.f 3.e 4.a 5.c 6.d

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

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

6/ use punctuation marks as well (, . “ ¡! : )

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

say, you say (English language classroom)

30 November 2019

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.

Prioridades en una clase de Latín +[EXTRAS] web de latín

9 November 2019

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

rosa, ae (rosa)

En una clase de iniciación al Latín, las prioridades serían: gramática, cultura latina, curiosidades y costumbres romanas, vocabulario, literatura y aforismos.

El libro de texto ayuda a seguir una línea coherente a lo largo del curso. Patricia Cañizares Ferriz y Óscar Martínez García son los autores de  Latín 4º ESO (Ediciones S/M) de la colección Savia. Barcelona, 2016.

La distribución de cada uno de los 9 temas del libro en tres partes resulta acertada. Así, los tres focos de la asignatura son Cultura, Léxico y Gramática. Se muestra un esbozo de cultura muy general, vocabulario y se divide el estudio y práctica de las 5 declinaciones del sustantivo entre todos los temas. Asimismo, el conocimiento de la conjugación del verbo latino en presente de indicativo y pretérito imperfecto, y en menor medida, el futuro. Incorporan pequeños mensajes en cada lección a través de viñetas o cómics, añaden un glosario de términos en un apéndice al final del libro y columnas de curiosidades en los márgenes de determinadas páginas. Por descontado, ejercicios prácticos y propuestas de actividades fuera del aula.

Con  todo, la jerarquización del enfoque de la asignatura en tres pilares principales: léxico, gramática y cultura me parece lo mejor del proyecto de Cañizares Ferriz y Martínez García.

Si a este material añadimos una pizarra, tiza, cuadernos, una plataforma digital en la que los alumnos disponen de listados de vocabulario, ejemplos prácticos de declinaciones y verbos, artículos sobre la cultura latina y quizá algunos textos latinos breves, aforismos y un diccionario, la clase de Latín será al menos interesante y fructífera.

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)
