Por que os métodos tradicionais já não funcionam mais

English course: why traditional methods no longer work?

Despite all the changes in recent decades, we realize that many educational institutions have difficulty adapting to new realities. The fact is that traditional teaching methods no longer work.

Therefore, in today's post, we will understand what traditional teaching methods are and see the importance of an English school encouraging the motivation of its students. Let´s go?!

The Traditional Teaching Method: Does It Still Work?

O sesi explains that, for a long time, most schools in Brazil (whether language or not) followed the traditional teaching method. And what is this traditional method?

This means that in classrooms there was always a teacher as the central figure in learning, who had the task of transmitting all the content. Sitting and lined up, it was up to the students to absorb the materials and then prove that everything was assimilated through the assessments (tests).

In this way, it is clear that traditional education, widespread from the 18th century in Europe, considers that all individuals learn in the same way.

However, in the last few decades, some changes have appeared, mainly decentralizing the role of the teacher, in addition to taking into account the fact that people learn in different ways.

What are the new teaching methods like?

O New Students Portal  explains that learning necessarily needs to involve the technology. And this happens because we no longer live in an age of encyclopedic knowledge, where all information is thought of in terms of right and wrong.

Currently, every subject is seen from different perspectives, with each individual being able to co-author their own learning.

An article fromBrazil School Portal explains that, for someone to learn, it is necessary that they want to learn. Nobody can teach anything to a person who doesn't want to learn. That's why it is very important that the teacher knows how to motivate his students.

And how to use new methods for teaching English?

O Brazil School Portal points out that, through a variety of resources, methods and procedures, the teacher can create a favorable situation for learning, for example, knowing the current interests of students in order to maintain or guide them.

Thus, for the student to learn English, it is not enough to explain and demand that he understand the target language. To learn it is necessary:

  • arouse your attention;
  • create in him a legitimate interest in the second language.

And when a student feels motivated? A student is motivated when he feels the need to learn what is being addressed.

Still according to the article, the motivation of the English language can be:

  • Instrumental motivation: it is a reason that drives the individual to succeed, such as passing exams, getting a good job, guarantee a place at the university;
  • Integrated motivation: seeks mastery over the culture and problems of this reality;
  • Resultative Motivation: the one in which the good result of the student's work drives them to want even more. Motivation comes from the success of your past experience;
  • Intrinsic motivation: positive interest in the subject itself as a field of study and work.

Therefore, an English school that wants to be effective, needs to work on the motivation of its students, awakening the desire to learn more and more. That is, escaping from traditional methods and creating new methods for the effective teaching-learning process and transformer.
