We teachers of English or other languages should foster a meaningful teaching for our dear students.
The topics we treat about should also concern our students and their world and interests.
Even the sentences we have them make up for example should be concerning their likes and interests. We won’t confine to a repetitive learning, although there are things they have to repeat so as to learn them, like the irregular verbs...
Even then the sentences and usage the students will make will be related to their world. This doesn’t mean we won’t open up windows to other topics that can be new for them, and so enrich their knowledge and experiences. Let's try a balanced teaching. / Photo from: bigstock-Little-Girl-Playing-The-Piano nocamels com
