I agree that listening is very important but there are some students who don’t hear the grammatical contractions in spoken English, espercially when this verb form isn’t used in L1. ( the verb ‘to be’ in Arabic) and unless it is pointed out they will never produce it.
Absolutely Joan. We do have to point it out and watching television in no way should replace a classroom setting. But it should be used to re-inforce the things students learn in textbooks and classrooms.
btw: I speak Arabic and never noticed there wasn’t an equivalent to the verb « to be ». The same way I never noticed there were irregular verbs in English until I started teaching English. Just goes to show you that learning grammatical constructions is not the only way to learn a language. 🙂
I not only use songs in classes, but teach younger children by putting sentence ‘chunks’ to tunes so they learn them really easily! Music is very powerful!
