1. How can you improve your students listening skills in your class?
I will teach them some listening strategies and skills in every step during my teaching procedure to improve my students’ listening skills.
In pre-listening, I will play some relative videos or show some relative pictures and ask them to have some predictions, which can improve their skills of prediction. During while-listening, I will play the tape of the listening material twice. At the first time, I will ask them some questions about the main idea of the material to improve their extensive listening ability. At the second time, students should take some notes, and I will ask them to fill the blank or mind map to help them master the detailed information of the material. In this way, students can improve their intensive listening skill.
2. How to design your post listening?
As pre-listening and while-listening are the steps of input. I will pay more attention to the output during post-listening. I will design a series of communicative activities such as, discussion, survey, role play or debate and ask students communicate with each other by using the target knowledge. I will give them certain time, and divide them into several groups, besides I will give them a certain topic to ensure the activities go on orderly and effectively.
