How can a student get 10/10 in a listening test but then struggle outside the classroom? Why is this disconnect happening? Damien explores these questions in more detail, using an article from the latest issue of MET and his own experiences.
In his latest series of vlogs for Pavilion ELT, Damien Herlihy is celebrating the release of the new look Modern English Teacher by focusing on the theme of each issue. Each episode will offer some highlights from that theme and then Damien will relate those ideas to his own teaching context. We hope that you’ll be able to do the same – no matter where you are in the world!
In this episode, he looks at the theme 'Teaching Listening' in the March/April 2022 issue. He focuses on the article “Three Things to Listen Out For" by Jonathon Ryan, which explores the disconnect between listening in the classroom and listening in the outside world.
How is Damien’s series making you reflect on your own teaching? Let us know in the comments under the vlog or below our shares on the Pavilion ELT social media!
