How to get large classes talking
Over the last 7 years of working in Thailand, I’ve seen numerous teaching forum threads about how to get large classes talking.
Some ideas on how to make life easier for yourself
Don’t take complaints or awkward suggestions to your local head. Go to them with easy to understand positive solutions instead. And don’t push your case or demand an immediate response.
Should games always have a pedagogical value? No.
Some of these appear in different versions and with different names on Dave’s ESL Café, but most of those were designed for smaller classes in countries like South Korea and Japan and don’t work very well with larger groups in Southeast Asia.
Why should students feel intimidated?
Phonics for absolute and false beginners? Yup, and even up to intermediate level too. And beyond if your students benefit from it.
Try something that really works
This a very logical and easy-to-use starting point for teachers that are new to working with kids or want to improve their skills in this area.
