Any language that is widespread in the mother tongue is known as "lingua franca". Such languages are widely used, for example, in business and commerce, in science, in diplomacy and in culture. Starting in ancient times and from the late Middle Ages, Europe had two main lingua franca in Latin (mainly in Western Europe) and Greek (mainly in Eastern Europe). With the rise of the Habsburgs, Spanish became the language of international diplomacy, while the French language had not moved in this area. Many other languages are also sometimes referred to as language franchises in international communication, some of which are German, Russian, Portuguese, Polish, Classical Chinese and Arabic. Today, due to the great cultural, economic and political influence of the former British Empire, the Second World War, and the United States of America, the English language has become the dominant language franchise for international trade, science, technology and flight. In addition, English became the leading language of the Internet, partly because the Internet was first developed in the United States, partly because English was already dominant among scientists and technologists who were the first hard and partially English-speaking countries (especially in the United States).
Given the importance of English, more and more people want to learn the language. This further increases the importance of English understanding and speech that encourages more people in English, etc.
Many non-native speakers of course have the ability to add some English in their daily use of hearing and language. Certainly, a large number of people have learned English from watching Hollywood movies, viewing British or American TV shows or listening to Western popular music. However, non-native speakers who want to use English as a part of their professional life generally find that English-formal education – "English as a Second Language" (sometimes referred to as "English as a Foreign Language") is abbreviated as "ESL" or "EFL ") – it might be useful.
Teachers in ESL Courses generally strive to have students well versed with language proficiency and written English language skills. This is done through various classroom activities, including language reading, reading and writing, and classroom games.
ESL Courses are becoming more popular bingo games. Bingo is ideal for teaching situations because it is very easy for learners to learn and play because they do not require expensive materials and because they can be used to teach a variety of subjects. The game is in the classroom: –
1. Before class, the teacher prepares a series of bingo cards (for a student) that includes subjects that are taught or revised. Depending on the subject of the lesson, this may include numbers, dates, dates, or English words (words of speech – words that can not be sound but are common in English and need to be recognized that reading is fluid – are especially popular). Please note that although little preparation is needed, this is not what teachers do not have to worry about – they can download free bingo forms ready for use from the internet or buy low cost bingo card printing software that allows them to be on any topic or subject print an unlimited amount of bingo cards.
2nd At the beginning of each class, each student receives a bingo card. The teacher acts as a bingo caller and the students are playing, either pointing to cards on a card, or using a coin or counter to include the squares if you want to re-use the cards in a later lesson.
Of course, since the purpose of the game is to practice English, it is very important that all games can be played in English! Entrepreneurial teachers can also adapt the game if they wish, for example, may require the winning slides to read the items they have read in English.
