:: RT: Doing English Homework ▶ http://goo.gl/yyR73S ◀ Learning English in context with a 3rd grader, in primary school in Norway | #Education #Pedagogy #PrimarySchool #Norway


When teachers want their students to learn English in the ESL classroom, they push forward the memorization methond of isolated word, in this case: uncle, aunt, cousin, ceiling, bathtub.

Why should students learn isolated words when they can learn full sentences using storytelling / the resources on this song/story we can find on internet.


Original Homework: Isolated New English words - Vocabulary

uncle - onkel
aunt - tante
cousin - kusine
ceiling - tak (innvending)
bathtub - badekar


Modified Homework: English Vocabulary with Norwegian and Spanish translation

uncle - onkel - tío
aunt - tante - tía
cousin - fetter/kusine - primo/prima
ceiling - tak (innvending) - cielo/techo
bathtub - badekar - bañera

Original Instruction: You can learn at least four of them.

My comments: Why not learn all the words using a context?
