Ann, Currently, we are working on Unit 7 (In the Hotel) in the "Beginners' Course" and on Unit 4 (Meals) in the "Main Course".

At the lessons we use the flash for:  1) reading texts during the warming-up activities
                                                     2) drilling grammar exercises in headphones
                                                     3) listening to the texts in the "Additional Material" for reproducing the gist and giving the details

Moreover, all of the students were registered on the forum, so they are free to listen to the audiomaterials in the corresponding branch. There are two more new pupils who haven't yet got the flash, I will take care of it next week.

     Did I miss the information about using the flash for drill purposes?

I missed it here, but I never skip drill at lessons.

We use the flash during warming up activities to read the texts at the speed of the speaker and also when we read various texts from the "additional material and speech exercises" the flash is used to listen to the texts and grasping the gist. Those ones who don't listen to the flashdrive form the minority but in rare cases I talk to such students individually after the lesson or if the issue remains - get in touch with their parents via their classroom teachers (To be frank, I did it only once, because, as a rule, there is no necessity in that).

     To DAS about the flash. Could you possibly describe how you work with it? You write "especially  those ones who drill the flash drive systematically".  And those ones who don't? What are your actions in this case?

     Could you give some concrete examples of ou success, DAS?

    I can  only speak for students from my groups, so I can confirm their pronunciation and intonation and overall listening skills have become much better (especially of those ones who drill the flash drive systematically). Moreover, during the course of our lessons we read many texts and learn to reflect upon them, write essays and personal letters hence improving both receptive and productive abilities of our pupils. Furthermore, we devote the last phases of the lessons to speaking (according to the general plan), discuss up-to-date issues with advanced groups and provide the beginners with controlled speaking practice. Nevertheless, grammar of certain students still leaves much to be desired, particularly during free speech activities, some of them tend to forget about accuracy when concentrating on fluency and last but not the least, some of them need to have their vocabulary enlarged.

     Giving our students seven lessons per week we definitely must provide them with proper English. I wonder why we can't.

But we can! Such big amount of classes per week allows our students to have enough practice in all skills: reading, listening, writing, speaking etc

Ann, It's really difficult to disagree with you here. Though I consider an ability to communicate the meaning to be the most important one, sometimes listening to one's crooked grammar is "a pain in the ears".

     Most people don't care if they speak proper or unproper English or Russian. It's not a matter of pride and good education and background any more. They just don't care.....

Practice makes perfect!
Doing something over and over makes a person better at it,
           but very few people are capable of it nawadays.
