End of Course Assignment 2

ESSAY

For writing this essay as in the end of my TEFL Academy TEFL Course (120 Hours), I
have selected the second option, the second class B a mixed nationality group of twelve new
adult immigrants with very little English living in an English speaking country. (CEFR Level
A1). After that I had choosen the class I have decided that this class is living in England. It is
very easy to me to choose this kind of class as from Romania, from my county, a lot of gypsies
had come to England to work, and they are in the same situation.

I had chosen a reading passage about the importance and the use of the National
Insurance Number (NIN), since I found the matter very difficult to deal with when I first arrived
in England and I have wished that someone would have helped me with it matter back at the
time.

It is possible that not all the students will need to know what the National Insurance
Number is in their near future, you can find very singular situations regarding immigrants in
every country. But exactly as it would be important to have a little more knowledge about how to
move in the underground, or about where and how to find a GP, having a little knowledge about
how to obtain a personal recognition number in the United Kingdom, it is something that I would
advise to learn from the very beginning to everyone.

I have filtered myself the original text and extrapolated the essential info in a more
understandable language form, to be able to explain them easily the new topic about the National
Insurance Number (NIN).

The materials I would use would be photocopies, paper and Realia pictures (attached on a
wall-board with Blu Tac). The vocabulary I would teach would be: to identify, to apply, to
ensure, to arrange, to run smoothly, to provide, to sit on hold, to follow-up, to be entitled to,
contributions, highky advisable.

Since the class is on a low-level, I would definitely put every word into a specific context
from the beginning, giving examples of when and how the word can be used, I would elicit the
class to come up with ideas in order to find the meaning and I would use the drilling technique
for the pronounciation part. I will repeat with them the new words.

This will allow the teacher to also dig deeper in the main topic of the lesson from the start
and will allow students to become familiar with the topic much sooner than the reading stage.

Once the vocabulary has been introduced and practiced enough, I would introduce the
reading text. The students will be given a limited time to read the text in silence, by themselves
before introducing the comprehension tasks. The reading text will be the center of the lesson, the
students will ask open questions about what is not clear right after they read it. It will be
commented and discusses through a T-C/ST-C conversation and concept questions.

Anything that will follow, will be obviously linked to it, including the folllow-up
activities. There are three follow-up activities that I intend to do with the students of this class:
activity one it could be a role play, activity two it can be a True or False Activity, and
activity number 3 a Form a sentence activity. In every activity I present the main skill of that
activity, the aim of that activity and also the instructions and procedure of that activity.
