Many teachers hailing from the different parts of the country attended on the first ever International English Teachers Conference held last August 18-20, 2017 at the Teacher’s Camp, Baguio City. This is a national event of Vivixx Academy and spearheaded by Baguio English Schools Association.
INETCON 2017 discusses how our teachers can help their students learn the English language more efficiently and effectively. The teachers who attended the event were from various educational institutions and ESL schools. It tackled on Speaking Class focusing on Oral Proficiency Development, Intervention Measures, and Assessment Systems.
According to the lecture, Oral Proficiency develops at home through our parents. If an individual has the initiative and the willingness to learn a certain language, one can make it. Persistence is the key to language proficiency. Embrace the mistakes and learn from them. One of the speakers said that you just need to practice, practice, and practice.
What are the measures to be used in helping your student learn better? It is noted that through corrective feedback guides them to understanding the rules and whatnots of the oral communication. Giving relatable demonstrative examples are also effective.
English learning providers are booming, which is a proof that the conference is very timely and relevant. It is also a part of the educational goals of the City of Baguio to boost its national performance and education tourism.
