Good Correction in English Language lessons

 

Support in the lesson

Correction is the cornerstone of English language teaching. It is the main advantage of practising English with the support of a teacher. Error correction does not normally occur when simply chatting outside of the English language lesson. Correction from one’s peers or colleagues is very rare. It is often unhelpful or incorrect, and would usually be considered rude or inappropriate.

Video is a great tool to use in English language lessons. It can really get learners engaged in a topic, and is also a fantastic way to generate interesting and communicative group activities. It can be great for speaking, listening and even writing practice if used imaginatively. Even examination preparation classes such as IELTS, FCE, and CAE could benefit from occasional short video clip activities.

There are so many ways to use video in the classroom, and below are a few ideas.
