 Building students’ confidence
in English
 Classroom techniques
 Technology for English study
What is confidence in a foreign language?
Confidence is built through:
- use of authentic materials
- an alert learning situation
- development of communication skills
- students exposed to culture.
(Garcia & DeFeo, 2014)
Today’s students need to know
WHY English???
“Engage them or enrage them”
(Prensky, 2009)
English: not just another school subject
English is a muscle!
English is like cotton candy.
English is a toy—
PLAY WITH IT!!!
 Language learning = sociocultural activity
 Development must be scaffolded for
maximum effect
(Vygotsky; Lantolf & Thorne, 2007)
 Authentic materials provide sociocultural
relevance to lessons
(Brown & Yule, 1983)
Confidence
Motivation
Practice
Providing practice opportunities
leads to confidence
Teachers need to model
confidence
3 Types of Activities
• Total Physical Response (TPR)
• Shadowing
• Storytelling
Total Physical Response (TPR)
-Get the students moving
-Reinforces language
-Allows practical use
of the language
Knowledge = Confidence
Shadowing
Immediately repeating after someone else
-Improves listening skills
-Reinforces pronunciation
-Speeds up fluency
(Murphey, 2001)
Fluency = Confidence
Shadowing
From a high school English textbook:
Storytelling
Students put new words & grammar into
practice about a topic they know about
- Realistic use of the language
- Reinforces vocab & grammar
- Activates learning
Language use= Confidence
After teaching the dialog
and practicing the grammar,
have the students create
dialogs of their own.
Storytelling
-Create a story
about a picture
“The woman is
walking her dog.
She is going to the
store to buy ice
cream…”
Total Physical Response (TPR)
Shadowing
Storytelling
Active learning OUTSIDE the textbook.
Engage your students & build their
CONFIDENCE!!
Now let’s practice thinking of
activities to engage our students to
build their confidence.
Who has a cell phone?
Technology brings the world to
you!
Connect with the English-speaking
world to improve your English

an appropriate YouTube video to show or
recommend.
