Teacher talk is a new series of videos featuring some of our TeachingEnglish Associates speaking about important teaching issues. In this video, the theme is student motivation.

Watch David Petrie, Adam Simpson, Lizzie Pinard, Chia Suan Chong, Anthony Gaughan, David Dodgson and Rachael Roberts discuss areas such as establishing learning objectives, giving activities a meaningful purpose, students' inherent motivation, varying activities and giving students a choice.



Hello everyone!

The most important part of the video for me was teacher talking about the importance to teach as a meaningful purpose. Students want to learn only things they understand why that subject is important for their lives.

I think is important to use the inherent motivation that student have, but is important also to construct a external motivation using all these techniques that are presented in the video.

And how to motivate Ss who are not interested in learning at all? I'm teaching a group of very stubborn teenagers who never listen when I say why we're learning a particular thing. They simply don't want to make any effort in the class, not to mention working alone at home.

I really need to know more those tips and this video is a real help.
