Homework Help: English

Posted by Henry2 on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 at 1:13pm.

Of course not. I let them repeat things orally and I keep repeating things to them. I have them do listening tests and summarize them.
The problem is that they don't want to learn. If I ask them to repeat, they complain to the headmaster about my "mechanical" method of teaching. They want to be let free to repeat what they want without being corrected. They absolutely don't care if they mispronouce or mispell words.
I sometimes have to listen to students who make an awful lot of mistakes and I can't intervene (according to the headmaster, who can't speak English).
Once we had a lecturer but the students didn't seem to care about him, too.
What shall I do?
I specialized in phonology and I know how important sounds are when learning a foreing language!!!
