A way to Communicate
Dear teachers in Farwaniya, Due to the heavy load on our shoulders as supervisors I thought of exchanging views through an Internet web page. Don't get upset if our visits are few , your are always in our hearts and minds.

Why do we teach English in the primary stage?
 The objectives of English teaching for primary school pupils are to familiarize the young learners with the use of English in their daily life, and to get them to build up enough confidence or fun in using English in a real situation when they learn it as a foreign language. We have two main aims to attain the objective. One is to familiarize primary English teachers with a variety of techniques currently used for the teaching of four language skills integratively. The other is to provide practical guidance for the teaching of the three key stages of a lesson which are presentation, practice, and production.

Teaching Young Learners

Teaching young learners is different from teaching adults.Young children tend to change their mood every other minute , and they find it extremely difficult to sit still.On the other hand , they show a greater motivation than adults to do things that appeal to them.Since it is almost impossible to cater to the interests of about 25 young individuals , the teacher has to be inventive in selecting interesting activities , and must provide a great variety of them.

The Order of Acquisition

"Language is usually delivered in the classroom following an established belief regarding the order of language ACQUISITION : Listening , Speaking , Reading then Writing.This means that we:

* present the language orally ; the child listens.

* then ask the child to reproduce this language orally, the child speaks.

* then present language in the written form ;the child reads.

* finally ask the children to reproduce this language in a written form ; the

   child writes.
