Cold Shoulder - English Idioms
The idiom "cold shoulder" means treating someone with coldness or ignoring someone. Our example is as follows: Anna is giving me the cold shoulder. She must be angry at me.
Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.
In my opinion, this unit returns to teaching theory and takes a closer look at reading and listening skills called receptive skills. The unit examines the importance of these skills and then covers various techniques and activities associated with them. I think this material is very useful for teachers as it provides stages of teaching receptive skills.Repetitional practicing lesson planning with ESA method is good.
All that is to remember is following:
Choose interesting/motivating material
Build interest before reading/listening(good engage stage is necessary)
Simple preview is needed
Vary the type of material
Vary the type of skill to practice
Use comprehension tasks(incorporating activate phases)
