Unit 1 of ESL/EFL is designed to teach young learners how to understand and respond to different classroom commands. This unit focuses on teaching essential action verbs that students will need throughout their English study life.
One of the objectives of this unit is to teach students how to give and follow orders using short phrases in the imperative mood. This is an important skill that they will use not only in the classroom but also in their everyday lives.
In addition to learning essential verbs and giving and following orders, this unit introduces the concept of TPR (Total Physical Response) as a language learning method. This method encourages students to learn by using their bodies and engaging in physical activities while learning language.
TPR is a fun and interactive approach to learning English and is used in future lessons to help students learn new vocabulary and grammar concepts. It's a great way to keep young learners engaged and motivated while learning a new language.
Overall, Unit 1 is a critical lesson for ESL/EFL students as it teaches them important skills they will need throughout their English study life. By the end of this unit, students will be able to understand and respond to different classroom commands, use essential action verbs, and give and follow orders using short phrases in the imperative mood. The introduction of TPR as a learning method also sets them up for future language learning success.
