ANy suggestion willl be appreciated and tried.. please
I'm an English teacher in Medan - Indonesia. I'm straggling with our 7-9 graders. 50% did not pass the final semester exam. when our elementary students 80% did good. I think one of the reasons English is difficult for them is because it isn't their first, nor their second language. The only time they speak and listen to English is when they are in the class with me which is roughly an hour a week only. Also, The school has poor facility. No, computers..we have only one English lab that equipped with broken stuff. no fund for material copying e.t.c. So far I have tape with good speakers. I download videos on the Internet, burn them for listening materials. as far as copying, I collect the money from the student. And I am working on the proposal so the entire school speak English the entire time during their present on school premises. Hope it'll help them to get used to with English. But.. please.. It seems like doesn't work that well, yet.
