Teaching approach and comments


The students repeat all that the teacher says. At
the beginning, it seems they dont understand
what they are saying, but actually they know lot
of vocabulary.
They watch a video and the teacher makes
answers regarding it. She/he makes sure that
they have understood the video.
Everything based in oral skills.
The teaching-learning process it seems to be a
routine. They repeat very day what they know to
say.
I like the way that the teacher keeps the
participation and attention grade into the students
and at the same time the silence and the control
of the group.

Kindergarten: small groups. All the body is


involved in English
Primary: The teacher is telling a story and the
students repeat what the teacher says. It seems
it doesnt have sense. They also have visual and
tactile supports.
ESO: the teacher is teaching grammar with fixed
structures and at the same time she makes them
conscious of the sentence analysis (S+V+DO...).
Metacognitive grammar strategies in order to be
conscious about how they are learning
The tasks involve all the group but the teacher
gives them an individual support
They start from brainstorming
