TESOL_Pre-inter level
 

Have a good day to everyone,

I need more helps about my Tesol exam about SPEAKING METHODOLOGY SKILLS...
 
My topic is "School Talks", Does anybody give me some ideas please? I am confused with which one I do frist? Do I need to introduce some vocabularies and structures in my speech? When using pairworks or groupwork is more logical?
 
Sincerely,

Whihc exam are you doing and what is the purpose of the exam? Do you have to give a talk about school or write an essay about speaking methodology in the context of a talk about school. What level is your exam?

If you could be clearer in what you require, I m sure someone will be able to help you!

Thanks for clarifying.

The first thing youn need is a topic or context in which to practise speaking. What is the function you are trying to get them to use - will they be asking for information or is it a general social situation.

Once you have chosen the theme of your lesson, you should sit down and work out what language (vocabulary/structures) your students will need.

For example, imagine you want you students to order food in a restaurant. They would need food vocabulary and structures such as Can I have... , I d like...

Are you aiming to work on their fluency or their accuracy. Fluency requires you to set a task and let them try it without too much interference. Accuracy would require more frequent correction.

It s fine to pre-teach vocabulary and structure - before they attempt the speaking task make sure they have the tools (language) they need to complete it.

Hope that s at least a starting off point for you.
