Hang Out! - Walkthrough

  2. 2. Overview  Hang Out! Is a six-level course book series designed specifically for elementary learners of English.  The series follows a comprehensive language program developed around a CEFR-based curriculum, showcasing levels PreA1 – B1.  Student’s are guided by the Scaffolding ELT methodology, allowing them to progress from producing simple phrases to complex sentences in a wide-range of topics, situations, and environments.  Through vivid illustrations, realist readings, and engaging comics, students follow a family of characters in their daily lives, eventually building their knowledge of high-frequency vocabulary, common grammar structures, and useful expressions.
  3. 3. Key Features  Engaging activities covering all four equal strands of learning (Meaning- focused input, Meaning-focused output, Language-focused learning, and Fluency development).  Teacher’s Edition with extensive classroom notes and Classroom Digital Materials.  Free downloadable content to expand the lesson and provide additional practice.  Workbook and interactive teaching CD.  Student Digital Materials and Student’s App (Class Booster) for extra practice in class or at home.
  4. 4. The Four Strand Theory The Four Strand theory suggests to provide a roughly equal balance of meaning- focused input, meaning focused output, language-focused learning, and fluency development. Teachers should keep a record of the activities done in the course, the strand they fit into, and the amount of time spent on them.
  5. 5. 1 - Meaning-focused input Main Goal  Focus should be on trying to understand, gain knowledge and enjoy what you are listening and reading about.  Learning through listening/ reading – using language receptively. Conditions  Most of what learners are listening to or reading is familiar .  The learners are interested in the input and want to understand it.  Learners learn from context clues and background knowledge.  Large quantities of input are present . Activities  Extensive reading, shared reading, listening to stories, watching TV or films, being a listener to a conversation.
  6. 6. 2 – Meaning-focus output Main Goal  Get your message across to someone else with language knowledge that is largely familiar to you. This idea is very popular in language teaching and is called communicative language teaching.  Learning through speaking and writing – productive skills. Conditions  Learners write/talk about things that are largely familiar to them .  Main goal is to convey their message to someone else.  Learn from communication strategies, dictionaries/ previous input.  Plenty of opportunities to speak and write are available. Activities  Talking in conversations, speech or lecture, writing a letter or note, diary, telling a story and telling someone how to do something.
  7. 7. 3 – Language-focused learning Main Goal  To learn language features: grammar, vocabulary, spelling, pronunciation and discourse.  Use language-learning strategies. Conditions  Learners give deliberate attention to language features.  Features should be simple and not dependent on developmental knowledge that learners do not have.  Features that are studied in this strand should occur often in the other three strands of the course. Activities  Intensive reading/listening, pronunciation practice, using substitution tables and drills, learning vocabulary form word cards, translation, memorizing.
  8. 8. 4 – Fluency Development Main Goal  Improve fluency of language items and features in your target language in all four skills: listening, writing, reading and speaking.  Developing speed and reinforcing learning. Conditions  All of what the learners are listening to, reading, speaking, or writing is largely familiar to them.  Pressure or encouragement to perform at a faster than usual speed.  There is a large amount of input and output.  Learners’ focus is on receiving or conveying meaning. Activities  Speed reading, repeated retelling, ten-minute writing and listening to stories.
  9. 9. Scaffolding Main Goal  The support or assistance given during the learning process, provides comprehensible input and moves the learner into the proximal development zone. Conditions  When a learner sees an image or word which is being explained, the learning aid assists in making the input more comprehensible, which is necessary for sufficient language acquisition.  Young learners need scaffolding, both orally and visually, to reduce the fear of learning and boredom in their language classroom.
  10. 10. CEFR Alignment Competency Development  CEFR alignment  Vocabulary (English Profile project by the British Council categorizes a large pool of vocabulary according to topic and CEFR level)  Can describe him/herself, what he/she does and where he/she lives.  Can-do statements I can communicate very basic information about myself and my family in a simple way.
