To help students practice. 1 L2
Compare your views with those of a group of teachers who discussed this issue at a training workshop on teaching English to
children. Do you agreewith their views? Did you think of other advantages or disadvantages?
After taking the timeand reading the views of what the teachers had to say about the advantages and disadvantages i feel that
they are explaining correct things that happen in the classroom. How some students have the disadvantage of understanding the
teacher since they have a limited English knowledge ,and also how using only English can develope confidence in the classroom.
But i think that it can also put a student down and not want to participate with the rest if he doesnt understand it.

-Explain how to Bandabe a wound.-Explain how to Bandabe a wound.
First I will start of by having the box of bandades and cleaning the wound with
soap and water then I will put peroxide on the wound, next I will dry around it with
a towel, finally I will cover it with a band-aid and tell them that their all set and not
to get the wound dirty or it will get infected.
The way that I feel about my students, in my classes their are different feelings I get with my srtudents. I
sometimes have a surprised and wonderful feeling when they out work themselfs and accomplish not only
the tasks that they have to do, but also when they speak and hold up to a 5 minute conversation, and thats
coming from an intro level class. Now when I am in my upper intermediate class or my advanced groups
working I expect a full English class without the need of Spanish since they passed the Oral Exam to get
their. But they sometimes come in after their lunch period and totally forget that they are in English class
and just ask for instructions, talk to one another, and even sing in Spanish that their gets me pretty upsetand just ask for instructions, talk to one another, and even sing in Spanish that their gets me pretty upset
and annoyed coming from them. Therefore as you can see my classes are all up for surprises since I get
the behaivor of an intro level student from my advanced classes. But I see that they feel like they dont
need to keep practecing since they know it, not knowing that they can easily forget it if it is not practiced.
Now what is something that I do to get control of the class, well i start of by telling them that they are
going to have the first five minutes of the class to get whatever it is that they have inside that needs to
come out and then we will begin the normal class. Does it work? Most of the tim it does I get control of 15-
18 students which are mainly girls and begin the class, then after 15 minuts of working with those that tend
to listen and work I get my group back. In my intro class I know that they wont be speaking English but the
effort that they put into it is what counts and it makes me feel great knowing that there are some students
that want to learn. So as you can see my learns make me feel like the wonderful teacher that ever taught
to the worst teacher thinking that I cant control them.
