BEING ENTHUSIASTIC IN LANGUAGE LEARNING

How do we make our learners enthusiastic in language learning?
Enthusiasmthrough;
  - creating the wonderful classroom atmosphere,
  - taking the role of facilitator not the authority,
  - making the learners as the center of the learning by taking into consider their needs and interests,
  - applying the useful and different education techniques and materials,

How can we create the wonderful classroom atmosphere?
a. Changing the physical settings;
a.1. having a colorful and bright classrooms,
a.2. using the classical music,
a.3. using the costumes and colorful clothes,
a.4. making different seating arrangements to enable the interaction between the learners,
   
b. Considering the Affective Factors;
b.1. having a motto or different greeting sentences to motivate and encourage the learners,
b.2. having a new identity in order to make the learners more risk takers,
(Suggestopedia; LOZANOV, Georgi ),
b.3. Pair and group work activities. (Gattegno, Caleb. 1972- Silent way);
b.4. experiencing the imaginary life in the classroom,
b.5. Using rhythmic repetitions in the classroom.
b.6. instead of being the authority of the learning process, behaving as a language counselor means someone who is a skillful understander of the struggle students face as they attempt to internalize another language. By understanding students’ fears and being sensitive to them, S/he can help students overcome their negative feelings and turn them into positive energy to further their learning. (Counseling &Community Language Learning)
b.7. using more attractive words instead of the repulsive /cold usages such as homework and exams in order to lower the affective filter of the learners, (Affective Filter Theory; KRASHEN,Stephen;1985)
b.8. The input “i” should be slightly above the learner’s current knowledge “i+1”. The language the students are exposed needs to be understood by them in order not to frustrate students with a heavy load of things to be learned. (input theory; KRASHEN,Stephen;1985)
