Before the break I was talking with a friend who is also one our fabulous LOLA teachers, Wanda Bolaños at SGES. She was sharing some videos of her students' presentational speaking, and I was so encouraged by what I saw and heard. I wanted to share this with all of you because I gained several things from our conversation:
The next video is a perfect example of encouraging student leadership and training up a potential future language teacher. This young man was allowed to lead the morning routine for another class--watch how how he assumes the role of teacher!
This young lady impresses me with her confidence! She doesn't even seem nervous.
Thank you LOLA teachers for all that you do to prepare every student for language success!!!! You are teaching them about proficiency, how to manage themselves in another language, as well as teaching them to be successful communicators! Keep up the good work!
