Materials for Language Teaching
Dr. P. Vinatha
Digital era, Visual aids, Audio aids, paralingual skills
Teaching has become an important aspect which includes knowledge, skills, presentation and basically paralingual skills. Teaching demands broad knowledge of subject matter in all horizons, complete curriculum with standards, positive and caring attitude with enthusiasm, and a desire for learning and techniques of classroom management and a desire to make a difference in the lives of young people. But, in this digital era, the course books should not be the only teaching material used in the classroom; because the use of course books alone would be boring and not very stimulating for the students. One of the outstanding developments in the educational technology in recent years is the increased use of teaching aids in teaching learning process. It seems important that teacher should arrange different teaching materials like Visual Aids: Blackboard, Bulletin Boards, Flannel Boards, Magne Boards, Realia, Pictures, Charts, Flash Charts, Maps, Calendars, Cartoon, Clocks, Sliders, Filmstrips. Audio Aids: Radio, Phonograph, Records, Tapes in order to make students remember their language. The existence of materials is totally based on the creativity and innovative ways of teachers. No one can assume even a single material without a Teacher because it is a teacher who uses the materials in the classroom effectively and the effective usage of those materials is reflected by the involvement of the students. Using this content to teach the English language can make the learning process even more engaging, imaginative and motivating for students. It can be useful to elicit genuine response from learners.
