Three ways to help English language learners 'notice' grammar We'am Hamdan, who teaches English at the British Council in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, describes practical ways to build 'noticing' in your next grammar lesson. What is 'noticing' grammar and what is its role in the English classroom? When I was learning English, my teachers spent a lot of time in class focusing on the form of the target language, but with no context. As a consequence, my natural and varied use of English suffered. Later, I experienced ‘natural’ English through movies, music and novels. These resources helped me to work out the meaning and form of grammar simultaneously. In his 'noticing' hypothesis, Richard Schmidt says that paying close attention to both the form and meaning of language items will contribute to one's learning. So, how can teachers help learners develop language proficiency using the noticing hypothesis? Help learners notice gaps in their language knowledge I checked learners’ general understanding of the text, then I re-read it. Man kill cat.
Say and tell: How to talk about talking (1) | About Words - Cambridge Dictionaries Online blog by Liz Walter Most of us spend a lot of time talking – in fact a recent study showed that the average Brit spends 6 months of their life talking about weather alone! It’s no wonder therefore that we often need to describe that activity. Unfortunately, simple verbs such as speak, say, talk and tell cause a lot of problems for learners of English. This post looks at two of the most common ‘talking’ verbs – say and tell – and gives advice on how to use them correctly. We often use say to report what someone else has said, using a that-clause. She said (that) she was thirsty. He says (that) he’s a friend of yours. For more detailed information about reported speech, look at my previous post on the subject: . It’s important to remember that when we use the verb say, we do not use the person being spoken to as an indirect object: He said he was a teacher. He said me he was a teacher. Like this:

Spice Up Your English Class: POINT YOUR FINGER: a game my adult learners really enjoy A few weeks ago I gave one of my workshops for teachers about how to use games in order to teach English as a foreign language. Only one of the participants didn’t show interest at all, and yes I took it at heart. I approached the neglectful lady while everyone in her group was focused on the task and she was phubbing instead. ‘I don’t want to sound rude but’, I began. She looked up, glanced at me then looked down back to her smartphone. I hesitated but then I continued, ‘Don’t you like this game? That evening, on my way back home, I couldn’t help but wonder, ‘ Why do so many people still think that games are only for kids? I’m sure that adult students’d better let their hair down after a long day at work rather than being in the spotlight if they got an irregular past simple wrong. There is no doubt that children’s learning process is way too different from the one of adults but a playful activity has never harmed anyone.

BBC Learning English - Course: intermediate / Unit 25 / Session 2 / Activity 3 If It Were My Home How to help learners of English understand prepositions Why are words like 'on', 'at', 'for' and 'about' so tricky for learners of English and how can teachers help? Adam Simpson, winner of the British Council’s Teaching English blog award, explains. Prepositions and their importance in English Prepositions are tricky little beasts. What exactly are prepositions and how are they used in English? In a list of English prepositions you will find very common words such as 'in', 'up', 'behind', 'from', and 'with'. While prepositions are limited in number, they are important because they act as vital markers to the structure of a sentence; they mark special relationships between persons, objects, and locations. What problems can prepositions cause for learners of English and their teachers? It’s very difficult to use prepositions correctly in English and they present a number of problems for both teachers and learners. First, most prepositions, especially the common ones, have several different functions. Go with the tried and trusted basics
