Ever tried to play games with kids in English?It can be a fun treat!But what about when the child doesn’t even know how to say hello?In this case, trying to play games or sing songs can be just plain frustrating.It can’t be denied—teaching English to children is nothing like teaching adults! 5 Creative Ways to Teach Children Through Fun Activities1. Art ProjectsArt is a fantastic way to get your young students excited and interested in a variety of lessons to reinforce different vocabulary.The art project that goes with this lesson should either come at the end of the class or at the beginning of the following class after a brief review of the vocabulary. Students can draw pictures independently, but you should walk around the room and encourage them to talk to you about their work.2. Active GamesYou’ve probably already witnessed the awesome power of kinesthetic learning in the classroom, and active games can be a great way to get beginners up and moving. One of the best for beginners is Simon Says, or a variant thereof.Simon Says can be a very useful way to reinforce new vocabulary while also upping the energy. That’s why it’s a great choice either at the beginning or in the middle of a class.3. Singing SongsSongs are a fantastic mnemonic device for new vocabulary, and the Internet is a wealth of different song ideas. The best time to use a song is once the vocabulary has already been introduced. Some songs are simpler, ideal for using the same day or the same week that the vocabulary is introduced.4. LabelingLabeling can be a great way to remember new vocabulary. We already discussed a bit how labeling can be used during an art project, but you can also use labeling in a classroom or with photographs.If you’re trying to teach the names of different things in the classroom, tasking your students with creating labels for them can be a great way to get them up and moving—and speaking! Once the labels are created, be sure to laminate them. You can use them with all sorts of games, from treasure hunts to interactive matching or memory games.5. Educative PlayParticularly when your students are very young, educative play is a useful technique for teaching them without ever letting on! Students can be encouraged to play with one another in a variety of ways, either with board games or in a playroom or space, depending on the way your school is laid out. The idea with educative play is for teachers and assistants to participate in the play in English, asking questions that students can answer.
This is a collection of basic spelling lists with corresponding image collections that teach basic English phonics principles. The lists were created for Adult ESOL Literacy Learners, but could be adapted for other ages and levels as well.
The materials provided are taken from three postgraduate modules which students study as part of the School's distance learning MA degree programmes in 'Literary Linguistics', 'Applied Linguistics, Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching' and 'Modern English Language'.
Our courses generally consist of 10 units which cover the key areas of study within particular disciplines, in conjunction with material documenting the latest developments within each field. The 'Descriptive Linguistic Analysis' units are taken from the compulsory foundational module, enabling students to gain the core knowledge that they will need throughout their programme.
The 'Literary Linguistics' and 'Language and Gender' units are examples from modules that students chose to specialise in, depending upon their own particular interests. At present, 100 Students from a range of diverse backgrounds in numerous locations throughout the world are registered on these courses. Students use these materials as starting points to their study, and then interaction with tutors and fellow students is maintained via email, discussion boards and chat rooms.

In this on-line lesson provided by 'CELE' international students can improve their social listening skills. This lesson is part of a module developing students' listening skills in academic, social and everyday situations.
This lesson helps students understand how humour is used in conversation and how speakers cooperate and share knowledge in conversation. Students can improve their listening skills through tasks focusing on understanding the main points, listening for detail, and practising predicting strategies. Students can work on tasks to improve their listening skills to identify weak sounds in English (difficult to hear) such as prepositions, contractions and articles. In addition, students can look up definitions of words, explore how words are used in context (including what words frequently go before or after a word), and obtain information about whether a word is commonly used in an academic context.
The listening module provides rich opportunities for students to improve their listening skills at their own pace, when they want to work, at their own level, and in any order they would like.
Students will debate whether they think making English our national language will solve problems that arise from a language divide in our country or whether it will create new problems.
