I will give them time to prepare what they want to speak. They may write the script on their notebook, but when they present they will be not allowed to read or to cheat the script. The duration that I give them for preparation depends on the topic being discussed. 5 or 10 minutes is enough. Or I give about 20 – 25 minutes for work discussion activity.
Before closing the lesson, I ask students to discuss what they have learnt in Thai language. It is done to ensure that they understand the lesson and the learning objectives are achieved. After discussing in Thai language, I will ask one or two students to explain in English.
Well, that’s what I’ve been doing in my class to engage my students to speak in my class. Hopefully it can inspire you all.
Do you have any other ideas? Please feel free to share with me in comment box.
Thank you for reading ^^
