"into the one of the best" "how does he achieved" /elaine/ … changes in school there is "disciplina" /dou/ /compulsory/ …have receive is better that… for someones this school have there are no many some boys says she like it a lot more close Was it corrected? Yes/NO How? "into..?" "Did you say: How does he achieved?" /elein/ … changes at school Your remarks The lesson started with homework checking and it turned into a free speaking activity in which the students would be asked to express their opinion about the topic. The topic the teacher had chosen was certainly fluency focused. They had been dealing with "Schools' Reputation", so the students found it motivating to give their opinion about their school and neighboring ones. It was great to see how the teacher managed to get the girls into a conversation in English, just by reminding them that Spanish was not "understood" inside the English classroom. It is important to highlight, however, that by analyzing the mistakes corrected we could infer a pattern of accuracy focused correction. The teacher tended to correct the mistakes as soon as they happened. Another important thing to appreciate in the observed lesson is the fact that the teacher gave equal importance to grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary and intonation mistakes. It was clearly seen, though, that the crucial element of a Communicative Classroom, meaning, was also present in this free speaking activity. The teacher reacted to the content as well as to the language in itself.
