Teaching English Without Teaching English

Roberto Guzman shared about how he used his three-phase system to guide his students in learning English without teaching them.

It was the effort to improve the learning experience for students that he focused on the need of critical thinking skills and hands on language development skills.

Getting students to think about what they are thinking can be a good way to raise their metacognition.

Most teachers taught English as routine structures as well as many grammar rules to remember.

If we were to provide experiential learning on how they used their English in different situation and how it would affect the way they present an information, they would develop greater awareness of the practical and appropriate use of English.

Learning English as a life skill would enable students to be a lifelong learners of English.
