Sometimes teacher ask them to write the main idea on the white board. Some of then retold the story fluently but most of the got the difficult in vocabulary so what the teacher do to over come this errors? The teacher had his own correction to correct this problem.
If the student doesn’t know the meaning of difficult word the teacher put that word in the sentence and asked the teacher to guess the meaning based of the context, for example when student didn’t know the meaning of the “storm”. The teacher put this word in sentence : You will see the storm if there is a heavy rain. When the heavy rain comes, there is a chance that a storm might happen.
From that then student will think the storm is a condition which often comes when there is a heavy rain.
Some time the teacher used the gesture to show the meaning of the difficult word, and correct them by facial expression.
While in pronunciation the teacher gave the correction by repeating the correct pronunciation after they pronounced the wrong way.
