Monol ‘s Intensive Oral ESL Course is designed to improve speaking skills and provide a four-hour one-on-one course in each of the subjects.
I want to briefly explain each subject.
1.PD (Picture Description photo description )
This is an hour-long course with texts and associated words on the textbooks, and the teacher guides the students to correctly describe the pictures in oral terms.
On the first page, I see pictures and questions related to the subject of this lesson. After learning these topics, I started discussing these issues with the teacher. Next, I describe the pictures as much as possible and include some reference words in my description. As I describe the picture, the teacher will record what I say in my book. After that, the teacher will correct my grammar mistakes and how to speak. But if I write the sentence before the class rather than in the class, I can not only reduce grammatical mistakes, but also increase the chances of speaking more, and I will not waste time in the class, so I can achieve better effect. The last part of a unit is to discuss the extension of the content with the teacher, but often I cannot understand those issues. I like the last part because I usually share the situation with the teacher about Korea and the teacher tells me about the trends in the Philippines. Here, we can learn more from these discussions. An hour flies fast, every minute is very happy.
2. DBC (Developing Basic Comprehension improve basic understanding )
The DBC is similar to listening lessons in normal ESL , but the difference is that the hourly sound is one hour shorter than normal ESL and the audio file is faster than the normal ESL . Before listening to the sound file, I have enough time to understand the topic, which gives me a little lesson content inscription. While listening to the file, I need to write something about what I have heard, such as key ideas and keywords. After listening, I’ll say my thoughts orally, explain the outline of the story, and my sentences be modified. Actually, this is the same as the PD course. The teacher will write down my sentence and correct the mistake in the Oral Summary section. Then I will listen to the audio file again so that I can answer the rest of the questions and get a better understanding of the course content. In the last part of the class, I read this article aloud, from which I can correct my pronunciation. Even with the same degree of material, it’s hard to say that ESL ‘s audio files are faster than regular ESLs and use more difficult words. I can improve my vocabulary and listening skills in this course.
3.ECD (English communication development in English to enhance communication )
On the other hand, ECD subjects focus on two hours of specific topics. Every day will end a topic.
This is why there are many units in the class to discuss and think about. The purpose is to allow students to constantly practice speaking in a way that answers questions. There are two key points in a unit: listening conversations and language focus.
In the first part, I need to hear the audio file and fill in the blanks. I can learn many terms in this section. However, this audio file is a human voice dialogue (native English speaker) the content of the dialogue is not about learners, so the speed is relatively fast, and it is natural. The first time I listen I find it hard to catch his focus, but I can now easily find the direction and content of the dialogue. Part of the focus of language is to practice what you have learned today. There are many similar questions in a unit, such as interviewing friends or conducting simulated conversations, and practicing everyday.
The key part of the language is to practice what I learned on that day. There are types of activities, such as interviews or conversations that are applicable daily.
