Dear friends! I am from Ukraine. My pupils are of 10-14 years old. They ´ve been studying English for about 4 years. They would like to check up their level of grammar and I promised to ask for your help, concerning tests or exercises, given by english-speaking teachers. Could you send interesting tests for foreign students ( my students) on my e-mail (email@example.com) and then I will send them( tests with answers ) to you in order that you will check up . It ´s very important to get evaluation from you, my students are deeply interested in your opinion and respect your thoughts! Thank you for cooperation!
I consider myself an experienced teacher. But I burst into tears when it comes to pose lesson aims. Basically the problem is I can ´t produce them in English. I used to be tought to do it in my native language(Russian). I have to search loads of English plans to find English interpritation. Can you help me? Maybe someone has a list of aims in English or you know any sites with it? I ´ll be very appreciated. Help a busy Mum of three little daughters who has to work at nights.))) Thank you very much!
So, I decided it was time to do a lesson on gerunds, because one of rmy students was having a lot of trouble with them when speaking. I gathered some worksheets and materials, refreshed some of my knowledge, and headed into the classroom--disaster!
It ´s been a very long time since I was not able to find a way to simplify a subject so my students could grasp it, but every attempt I made with the gerunds seemed to head off into a spiralling state of unclarity. I even stopped mid-sentence on a few attempts (realizing what questions my next example would bring up and make them even more confused).
I finally just told them that there are so many "special rules" for gerund use that it is better to just try and train our "it just sounds right" feeling through drill. When then proceded to work through about 70 sentences and I explained as we went. (Thanks to whoever ´s worksheet I used)
My question to you:
Do any of you have any special success stories or strategies for making gerunds "simple"? It ´s been a long time since I felt that way in the calssroom and want to prevent a repeat.
edit: I used nionia1986´s worksheet: http://www.eslprintables.com/grammar_worksheets/verbs/gerunds_and_infinitives/GERUND_versus_INFINITIVE_58361/#thetop
That was one of those areas, I was about to enter, realized it to be a minefield, and slowly back out of it. (Something to the affect of: " Technically, gerunds are not the present participles we use in the continuous tense, but going into it to deeply at this point will only confuse you and not get us to our objective.")
