I have attended number of classes and lectures during my school. But here I would like to talk about classes which I just started a couple of months ago and I enjoyed a lot. well, I have just completed my senior secondary education in an art stream, and now I want to go abroad to pursue higher education. ‘
This is my dream that I will study at a foreign university but for the visa requirements, IELTS is mandatory. So I started preparing for IELTS for two months. At first, I thought that it would be easy for me because I was good in English subject. But, in lectures, when I started to do every module of IELTS I was facing numerous problems such as time management in reading, lack of confidence, writing mistakes, and failing to catch the words in listening.
Most interestingly, Thank God I had a very knowledgeable teacher Mani Dhaliwal. He recognized my problems and gave solutions accordingly. The teacher explained everything in detail and although the lectures were long, I didn’t get bored. He made these difficult modules easy with his exceptional skills. He used to teach us grammar in a very funny way. I still remember each and every rule of grammar.
Apart from that, he not only taught us academic information but also used to give social examples for better understanding. I think my English has improved a lot because of those lessons and lectures. So this a time when I attended lectures of IELTS and I enjoyed a lot.
Part 3:- Follow-up Questions of Describe an English class/lesson that you enjoyed
1. What are the benefits of learning a foreign language?
There are many benefits of learning a foreign language. Firstly, it helps students academically, as the skills they learn in one language like comprehension and finding out the main theme of a paragraph can also be applied to their language. Secondly, it opens up more opportunities in the future. For example, it can help students pursue higher education in a foreign country. Similarly, a foreign language can help people secure a job in a company, which deals with foreign clients.
2. What are the benefits of being a foreign language teacher?
The main benefit of teaching another language is that the person can enhance their knowledge of the language. I think people learn much more about the language when they teach than when they study it. Secondly, foreign languages also tend to get paid better and they might also get opportunities to travel abroad. Finally, I feel the language classes have the most diversity in terms of age. I have seen people as old as seventy learning French and German. So, it never gets boring teaching a foreign language as people get to meet different people.
3. Will computers replace foreign language teachers in the future?
think computers are certainly beneficial in helping students learn a foreign language. However, do not think computers can replace language teachers completely. Computers can help students improve their grammar and pronunciation but they cannot help students develop or express ideas. Moreover, there are cultural aspects to a language, which can be only taught by a teacher in my opinion.
4. Is grammar the most difficult part of learning a foreign language?
No, I don’t think grammar is the most difficult part as there are certain rules of grammar. I think it is logical and so it can be learned with practice. However, pronunciation can be very tricky as I find there are no fixed rules to it.
5. Do you think grammar is important in language learning?
Yes, I think grammar is really important in language learning. If the grammar is wrong, the sentence can give out a completely different meaning and it can lead to misunderstandings and embarrassment. For example, I taught and was taught to mean completely different things, just the presence of was in the middle – changes the meaning completely.
