Practice Makes Perfect

Wendy . Blog Shakespeare slept here! Publicado 05 Octubre 2012

Some of you have discovered ENGLISH IN ACTION. Some are still reticent.
Everyday different people come by to see what it's all about. Some stay for a short chat, others end up spending an hour or two. Today Luis appeared first. Then María. We interviewed each other and anyone else who came by: UEM employees, undergrads and grad students in a variety of fields. One minute you're talking to someone who studies International Relations or alternative energy, and the next moment an Erasmus exchange student from England appears. "What's your name?" "Where are you from?" and the conversation takes off. Today no one wanted to leave, but some had to go to work, others to class, others to have a late lunch.


WALKING & TALKING- You walk and you talk and you learn some useful vocabulary.
It was sure nice to get out of the classroom!

Next week: DARE TO CROSS THE LINE and COMMERCIALS.

Hope to see you soon. -Wendy

In my opinion, Walking and Talking is a very good idea to learn English. Could be funnier than traditional English class into the University. When you see directly those that you are talking about, it´s easier to remember them

Practice is the best way to learn. It´s what I think. I teach "Computer Sciences and Communication Systems" in the Advanced Career and Technical Education degree. All my pupils need practice, but practice help them to learn fast and they build their own permanent knowledge. My pupils remember perfectly the knowledge acquired by practice but sometimes forget the knowledge acquirede by other way. David.
