The teacher analyzes the students’ reading, writing and communication abilities regularly. He pays attention to each and every student so that their individual abilities come out and show. He calls them one by one and asks them questions relating to grammar and tenses. For example, He gives them a word and asks its past tense. He gives them a sentence and tells them to choose nouns, verbs, articles and adjectives. He gives them class tests and lets them make simple presentations regarding phrases and idioms. He uses technological tools like multimedia to show them presentations with colored images and animations to make then better comprehend grammar rules. He makes them choose topics for themselves to write simple essays upon and then lets them read one paragraph from their essays. He encourages them to ask questions about each other’s cultures so that they are better able to socialize. He also helps them consult books from the library to have a better grasp on grammar rules.
I also observed that the teacher emphasizes on working with groups of students. This helps them to better interact with each other and share their problems and ideas about their literacy skills. The teachers groups students and gives each group a vocabulary sheet on which each group has to write down difficult vocabulary from a piece of text from their textbook. Each group is given a dictionary and the teacher tells them to find out the meanings of the difficult words and write down the meaning after each word. This helps them increase their vocabulary and enhances their language learning. The teacher also gives each group a story books and tells them to go through them and respond to short questions. The groups study the books and discuss the stories with each other before the teacher asks them questions. The teacher encourages each group to give views on their books. This helps them build ideas and convey them in a proper manner. Level 1 students got
