Find Out Why English Is Important in Many Different Fields!

Hello guyss ๐Ÿ˜€, I hope you all are still loyal to read and visit this blog although the posta here are not updated every day. For today’s topic, I am going to discuss about the reason why English is important in many different fields. 

In the past, English were not really seen as an aspect which wass important in many fields such as education, culture or trades. However, In this global era, many companies and institution decide that their employees must be able to communicate in English. As we can see in some job vacancies, the companies will mention about the capability to speak and write in English. With the short description about, this post will find out why English is important in many different fields. 

1. International Language

This first reason has been known by most people. English is spoken internationally and many people understand it although they do not use it formally.

Since it is spoken in most foreign countries, it becomes one of the requirements for jobs, travels or everything which involves foreign country. People need to master English to ease their communication with other countries’ citizens.

So, do you still think that English is needed in particular field?

2. A Tool to Introduce Other Cultures

English as the helper in communication is also a tool to introduce other cultures accross country. This is felt by English learners who learn to master English as well as they are able to.

Don’t you realize that English makes you know other countries’ cultures? I personally feel it because while learning in the university, I learn many foreign cultures such as Saint Patrick’s Day, Helloween, and Thanksgiving Day. Besides that, you can introduce your own cultures so that other citizens can understand it. 

Learning English can be good start for you who want to know about cultures of some countries. 

3. International Relationship

Besides as the tool to introduce cultures, English can strengthen International relationship. It makes communication among citizen clear and concise. 

International relationship can be about politics, trades, or cooperative project from one country with the others. That is why embassies which try to recruit employees make English as a ‘must’ subject that should be mastered.

4. Education Measurement

Why English is important in many different fields is because it has been a standard that must be fullfilled, especially in education field. 

English can be a measurement for education since the curriculums of certain schools are based on the international standard such as Cambridge and Oxford. It usually occurs in non English-speaking countries such as Indonesia, China, Japan, and Korea.

I hope this post can help and motivate you to master English more. I am sorry for late update due to the inspiration seeking.

[College & Teachers] Tips for Developing Your Lesson Plan!

Lesson Plan is a mind map which contains lessons and techniques used by teachers. It is created before teaching. It becomes important because teacher can enhance the students’ ability through it. Moreover, teachers are able to calculated the time in learning and teaching.

A good lesson plan will bring good effects to the lesson given to the students. Whenever it is not well-developed, the students will not be able to absorb the materials maximally. Creating lesson plan can be confusing for some teachers and students of Education Faculty, especially when the lessons must be divided into themes for around two until three meetings. Troublesome lesson plans will be burdens for students of Education Faculty when doing teaching simulation

In this article, there will be several tips which you can try in order to create lesson plans. I hope it really helps you!

1. Skills vs Themes

In everyday situation, we may see some teachers are confused in deciding skills and the themes. Factually, you should not get confused of those two things.

As your first start, you can see the textbook of the students. After that, you can choose among four language skills. For example, you choose speaking, then you can decide the kinds of activity to improve speaking skills. Once you have the ideas, it will be easier to decide the themes, but make sure that you choose proper themes which are suitable for the students’ age.

2. Achievement Indicator

Achievement indicator is goals which you want your students to master. It is the most important part in creating lesson plan because you can guarantee the results after following your lesson.

This part must be relevant with the skills chosen. While deciding indicators, you have to arrange it neatly. You can use specific words such as determine, identify, etc.

3. Types of activity

This part will connect to scaffolding and worksheets or practice given. It must be mention in your lesson plan so that it can be clear.

Do not forget to look back to the indicators while choosing the activities. Since you have decided what skills your students must master, it must be relevant and interconnected.

4. Media

When you have decided skills, themes, indicators, and activity, you should know what kinds of media you will use when teaching.

Including media in your lesson plan will help you in preparing the lesson. You will be not disappointed whenever you have determined media in teaching.

5. Techniques

Techniques are about how you deliver the materials to the students. It helps your students to learn and understand the materials. This part must be carefully decided because once you use wrong techniques, it will affect to goals or indicators.

Techniques used in teaching must be included in order to achieve the goals decided. The techniques you have chosen may not be fully used according to the situation and condition since there will be some possibilities such as the absence of a student or noises

6. Sources

The last part is sources where you get materials. Materials from internet or any references books are not fully developed from you, so you must include the sources.

Usually, sources are included when it is about worksheets, videos, or techniques.
