HERE are some guidelines for English teachers on classroom practice. How much classroom time should be allocated to teacher talk and student talk? Should teachers think more carefully about why they talk? How can oral group interaction among students be generated to make English classes enjoyable and at the same time in line with curricular goals? What can a teacher do to enhance students' interest in grammar? How can newspapers be used as a positive teaching/learning resource, apart from being used for reading comprehension exercises? How can TV programmes or other audio-visual materials be used as a teaching-learning resource? Student interest is usually high for novel, out-of-the-ordinary activities. How can students be encouraged to use English outside the class? Students in general lack confidence when speaking English. Can student confidence be built up through regular activities to improve pronunciation and fluency?
