Opis: Children learn languages differently from adults. They learn more spontaneously and naturally. Most students in Slovenia begin learning English as their first foreign language in the second grade of primary school at the latest. Teachers have to use age appropriate materials and methods. Authentic songs are materials that introduce the language of native speakers.
The thesis focuses on the use of authentic songs in the 2nd and 3rd grade of primary school. The theoretical part contains the reasons, the criteria for the choice of songs and the ways to use them in class. It lists the advantages and disadvantages of authentic materials and suggests how to prepare authentic materials for the use in the classroom.
The empirical part presents examples of the classroom use of the songs "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush", "Wind the Bobbin Up", "Rain, Rain, Go Away", "The Big Ship Sails", "Ring Around the Rosie" and "Hickory Dickory Dock". The songs have very interesting origins and can set the basis for the introduction of various themes that are included in the English syllabus for the 2nd and 3rd grade of primary school.Ključne besede: songs, authentic materials, English classes in the second and third gradeObjavljeno: 24.08.2018; Ogledov: 570; Prenosov: 47 Celotno besedilo (1,78 MB)
Opis: Research suggests that many ESL teachers either modify or supplement the set textbooks they use in class, or develop their own materials for classroom use. Indeed, in recent years, the internet in particular has opened up a rich and at times perhaps baffling array of resources for those ESL practitioners who wish to incorporate authentic materials into their teaching. While the benefits of authentic materials are well-documented, their use is, however, not entirely unproblematic, and as research into the field of material (authentic or otherwise) development grows, this raises a number of issues as to the form these materials should take and how they can best be employed. This article presents a set of vocabulary building activities for future nursing staff; these activities are in use at the Faculty of Health Sciences in Maribor. The article explains the rationale behind them in light of the theoretical framework of language acquisition that underpins them.Ključne besede: ESL teachers, vocabulary acquisition, authentic materials, trainee nurses, theoretical frameworkObjavljeno: 10.07.2015; Ogledov: 579; Prenosov: 54 Celotno besedilo (105,48 KB)Gradivo ima več datotek!
