E-LEARNING MODULE GUIDE
Each e-learning module consists of four sections: Interactive Review, Cheat Sheet, Fluency and Pronunciation Practice, and Work Plan.
- The Interactive Review, obviously, is an interactive review of your last lesson.
- The Cheat Sheet consists of Grammar, Vocabulary and Usage Notes discussed during the lesson, plus an Audio Review that the teacher and student prepare together at the end of each lesson.
- Fluency and Pronunciation Practice helps you speak with more ease and with a better pronunciation.
- Work Plan tells you what you need to do to be ready for the activities in the next lesson.
- Open the Interactive Review section…
Fill as many of the blanks as you can from memory. Do NOT click on “Finish Quiz” yet!
Now close the Interactive Review section.
- Open the Cheat Sheet section…
Study the Grammar, Vocabulary and Usage Notes.
Listen to the Audio Review from the beginning to the end. (You can pause and rewind the review as you wish.)
Now close the Cheat Sheet section.
- Open the Interactive Review Section again…
Fill in as many of the remaining blanks as you can. If there are still things you don’t remember, try to fill in the blank with a logical answer that seems correct to you; if not, type a question mark (?) in the blank.
Now click on “Finish Quiz”. You will see how many questions you have answered correctly and your success percentage. Now click on the “View Questions” button to see the correct answers to the questions you have got wrong. Spend a few minutes studying your mistakes and make sure you understand how to avoid them in the future. If you are not sure you understand the problem, note it down ans ask your teacher at the beginning of the next lesson.
Do the Interactive Review at least one more time, preferably after a few hours or a couple of days. You can do the same with the older e-learning modules from time to time.
- Open the Fluency and Pronunciation Practice section…
Practice the words, phrases and sentences with the help of the audio recording.
A couple of hints: Pay attention to what you HEAR, not what you expect the pronunciation to be based on the spelling of the word. Also, try to repeat as quickly as you can. This will help you remain closer to the original pronunciation you hear rather that the (probably incorrect) pronunciation stored in your memory.
- Open the Work Plan section…
Do the activities for your next lesson. The better you do these activities, the better your chance of having an active and fruitful lesson in which you can participate more, talk more and learn more.
- Work actively! Don’t just read. Take your eyes off the page and see if you can repeat the sentences, ask yourself questions and answer them. See also if you can make similar realistic sentences about your own life.
- Create an English environment around you. Read the news in English, watch films in English, speak with your classmates in English before and after the lesson, …
