THE REASONS FOR THE TOPIC BEING CHOSEN: Today English is considered one of the most important factors to the trend of globalization in all fields of life all over the world. Thus, English as Second Language has been taught in many countries and the demand to use English fluently as well as to acquire four basic skills is becoming essential among all students. As a result, methodology has been studied for years to find out the most effective ways of teaching and learning English. In Vietnam, high school students have to acquire four skills of English as reading, speaking, listening and writing when they study English. Among them, listening is considered the most difficult skill. Learning foreign languages including English is difficult for learners, especially students. The objective of learning English is to develop the four basic skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and the useful knowledge so that students can use English for their further study or for their work. Therefore, English textbooks of grade 10, 11 and 12 are written with the same viewpoint which is thematic approach and raise students' awareness of active studying. All four skills are applied to teaching English for students. Listening is one of the four skills which learners as well as high school students have difficulty learning most. In order to have a good skill of listening learners should practise listening very often with the different styles and contents. Teaching and learning the listening skill is not new, but can be hard for teachers and students. Having researched this topic, I hope to improve some problems of teaching listening skill including Post listening part more effectively. The students will be able to obtain the knowledge better when learning how to listen. I hope that the topic "Some Activities in Post Listening" of Grade 11 – the basic programme will be more interesting in order to attract students' excitement during listening periods. That is the reason why I choose the topic. II. SOLUTIONS: II.1. The logical basis: Having spent much time teaching listening skill, I myself believe that the aim of teaching listening is to develop listening comprehension skills for students such as intensive listening, extensive listening, listening for gist, listening and making predictions, listening for sequence,… For this reason, I have designed some activities in Post listening of Grade 11. They are Questions and Answers, Gap-Filling, Role play, Discussion, Games, Recall the story, Games (Doing Crossword and Word Square), and etc… As “Post- Listening” lasts about maximum of from five to ten minutes, these activities must be connected with the lesson and adapt to the students' level. They help students have activeness and pleasure after listening. The students do not depend on the tape scripts. After "While Listening", students are able to recall the story, role play, write it up, or further practice. Nguyen 3 Huu Canh high school Teacher: Vu Thien Duyen Some Activities in Post- Listening – Grade 11 II.2. The practical basis: During teaching listening skill, I realize that most students are not very interested in listening. The reasons are that they read the tape scripts in the guide book to answer the Tasks in the textbook. In fact, they are not able to listen. From the practical problem, I think I must redesign some tasks of "Post Listening" with different styles to improve students' listening comprehension better. These tasks are up to students' level for each class. Through these tasks, we can organize the class with Individual work, Pair work, or Group work which encourages them to be more confident and dynamic for their learning English. In order to have the effective listening lesson, there is the cooperation of the teacher and students. Therefore, students’ listening and speaking skill will be improved. II.2.1 PREPARATION: + The teacher delivers the hand-out of Vocabulary and asks the students to be well-prepared before class. Students will practise pronouncing, check the meaning, and imagine the content of the listening text. Students mustn't read the tape scripts until the new lesson begins. + The teacher should design some activities in Post-Listening attractively so that they can understand the lesson and do the task. The teacher can use pictures, posters, handouts to save time in teaching Listening. II.2.2 THE LESSON AT CLASS: - The teacher divides the class into pairs, groups, team, which is suitable for each activity. - The teacher can use pictures, posters, handouts, activities and directs students the way to do each suitable task. - The teacher can encourage students who have good presentation by giving plus marks, small presents so that they are interested in learning English. - Correction is an integral part of the lesson. The teacher’s attitude towards correction is positive and correction techniques are used to encourage students, not to put them down or make them feel stupid. In my opinion, it is not necessary for the teacher to correct every mistake that happens in the lesson. The teacher does not expect the students to be accurate – just to be able to get the main ideas and so mistakes are ignored at this time. III. RESEARCH CONTENT: Having experienced in teaching English Grade 11 – the basic program for many years, I have designed some activities in Post – Listening for the following lessons: unit 1, unit 2, unit 3, unit 4, unit 6, unit 7, unit 8, unit 9, unit 10, unit 11, unit 12, unit 13, unit 15 and unit 16.
