teaching second language

How can teachers provide more engaging writing opportunities for learners to feel confident in their writing abilities? Teachers could provide meaning activities that are contextual for the learners. In this article, teacher Anitha, Puducherry, explains with more meaning activities.

This article is taken from "Thisaimaani"(Path-2, Journey-2), a magazine for the teachers, published by AzimpremjiFoundation, Puducherry. 

The child learns the mother tongue by listening to his/her parents and other people around. The child picks up the language from her/his sorroundings where it is used meaningfully. The child develops as a linguistic adult with the help of the perfect learning environment. On the contrary, when we introduce a foriegn/second language(here, English) to her/him, there is very little opportunity for listening to that language fluently.
