870. You understand the message?

One day teacher of English A said to teacher of English B, “I would advise you that if you’ve got to explain to the whole class something they’re lately doing bad regarding behavior, do it in English, not in Spanish, their mother language. Also when you’ve got to bring out their effort and striving to do things well. You may think they won’t understand you.

They’ll understand the core message, and some students will understand more information.

The point is that, for example, when you’ve got to scold them they can observe in your face that you’re mad [angry, cross] and you’re explaining something important. Don’t reprimand them at the moment you got burned out. Wait for the next day or even more.

They see you’re upset, and alike they understand more language signs in your speech: it’s kind of intuition. At that moment I think they’re acquiring the target language, not just learning it. It’s good they listen to English, though they may not understand something, or even much. At that moment, tentatively, they’re acquiring English, because they’re listening in English massively.” / Photo from: addins kitv com
