- As I reflect on my initial blog entry (see Appendix A), I realise that my understanding of literacy has developed expeditiously, from a simplistic view into a multi-faceted outlook that underpins learning throughout the curriculum. Although I had indicated an awareness of the interrelationship of speaking and listening, reading and writing (SLWR), I did not conduct in depth analysis that considers these elements specifically with the process of learning. This essay will discuss how my understanding of SLWR has evolved, and in examining the links between lectures and workshops, further reading and school based training (SBT), will reflect on how this has impacted on my development as an Engli...   [tags: english teacher, speaking and listening]

Teaching English As Second Language

- Teaching English as second language is an incredible act of balancing multiple aspects of language at one time – syntax, morphology, phonology, and much more. L2 teachers must utilize each of these if they are to effectively teach the L2 to students in their classrooms in a way that produces the most improvement across facets such as grammar, pronunciation, and comprehension of the language. SLA research shows that there are multiple, often controversial ways of teaching an L2 – none of which seem to be completely solidified as being the best....   [tags: English language, Language]

English Education in Korea: Is it Worth It?

Thankfully, after choosing East Asia as the general area for my studies in this assignment, I was able to narrow my focus down to English education in Korea because my sister Mikaela has been teaching English in Korea for over two years, so she is a good casual research guide and primary source.
