Use the whiteboard/blackboard. Italy still works with traditional blackboards in most cases, though some schools have whiteboards. Draw a scene on the board and have students write sentences in their notebooks to describe it, or have them comment on it as speaking practice. Be sure the drawing can elicit the grammar and/or vocabulary in your lesson’s objective, and that it contains enough details to give each student a chance to cite something original. Make a rough copy of your drawing while you’re planning your lesson to be sure you can execute it on the board, and that you can draw it quickly while students are focused on another task.
Find out and learn by heart the common English mistakes most often committed by people. Just like the grammar rules, you need to memories them as well so as to avoid making the same mistakes. You could just make a search in the internet and find out the list of the most frequently committed English grammar mistakes and memories them by heart.
There are also some learners who prefer to study both with visuals and with audio, thus the use of various videos when learning English. Others may also choose different sitcoms, movies, cartoons and even movie trailers. These things make word association and word recall easy, especially for those who tend to remember things better through visuals. Preparing worksheets and discussions after watching the movie can be helpful, as well as building new vocabulary.
Have students make their own materials. Students love to produce materials. A good idea is to have them create a worksheet and then exchange with a partner. They love to challenge each other and it’s good practice for accuracy with spelling and grammar. Make-your-own word search and crossword puzzles (great for vocabulary lessons) are always hits in the ESL classroom. The teacher should monitor the work closely to catch and correct any errors before students exchange worksheets.
English music lyrics can provide these learners new words and a way to remember them. Remembering a language through music usually works better for most students because they connect words with melodies, making them easy to recall. Kids and teenagers may like to sing along, as well, and do simple exercises such as filling in the missing lyrics in their activity sheets.
Take advantage of online quizzes and blogs. There are many free platforms available for teachers to create their own webpage or website. If the school has internet access (schools in Italy are catching up on technology), it is even possible to conduct an entire lesson online. The teacher plans the lesson and then uploads it to the site, where the students can follow along, complete on-site worksheets by downloading them to a word processor, and test their knowledge with online quizzes. Its ideal for a mixed-level class with students who finish earlier than others in lockstep. They can simply go on to the next activity on-site, or click on one of the linked pages in the teacher’s ”links” directory to find more ESL activities and games on the web.
