UNIT 27: Teachers´and learners’ language in the classroom.

28 Jun

Classroom functions are the purposes for which we use language in the classroom. These functions are many and varied, for example explaining and instructing. for each classroom function there are different exponents we can use. The choice of exponents depends on the learning context and purposes, the learners’ needs, their age and the level. When we choose language that is right for the situation and our audience, we say that we use language appropriately.

In the exercises below you will find the next vocabulary:

Discourse Exponent Getting learners´attention Instructing Modeling
Encouraging Nominating Prompting Utterances Swap
