Lesson plans form a very important part of teaching. A lesson plan is the instructor’s road map of what students need to learn and how it will be done effectively during the class time. Here you can catch a glimpse of some of my work in lesson planning.
- Beginner Level
Beginners is a general term teachers use to describe students who are just starting out to learn English.It is rare to find complete beginners in the classroom. Almost everyone has had some exposure to English – however minor – and knows at least a few common English words. And also, beginners should not be confused with age. You can find a class of beginners who are very young children and likewise a class of beginners who are mature adults.
- Elementary Level
Elementary level students have a basic command of the language needed in a range of familiar situations, for example: they can understand and pass on simple messages, understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases.
- Intermediate Level
Intermediate level students can talk and read about a wide number of subjects using appropriate vocabulary and fairly correct, if basic, grammar. They can confidently use all the main tenses, and are beginning to use phrasal verbs, modal verbs, and suchlike. An intermediate level student has generally enough knowledge of the language to branch out to more specific English courses, such as Business English or English for Academic Purposes.
- Advanced Level
Advanced is used to refer to learner levels for students who can hold extended conversations and write extended texts. It is by no means a strict definition and there can be a great deal of overlap between advanced and intermediate students. They are aware of differences between formal and informal English and whilst they may make occasional mistakes and their pronunciation is obviously not like a native speaker, they have little difficulty in communicating on everyday topics as well as specialized subjects.
