Read text 1 and answer questions 1 to 5:
Good Motivation, Better Relationship
As teachers we should be aware of the fact that students
between the ages of 13 and 17 are growing, their bodies are
changing physically, mentally and emotionally and these
changes affect not only the way students learn, but also the
5 way they want to be treated and the way they behave in
school and in society; their roles in their families also face
major disturbances: teenagers become more aggressive, rude,
passive, and basically want to do only what they please.
Therefore, working in classrooms with teenagers might
10 become a complete challenge. In order to get our students’
attention we must focus our efforts in developing a good
relationship with them, not only at a teacher-student level, but
also in helping them to develop better relationships at a
student-student level and with their immediate family as well.
15 Students have so much around them; we live in an
overwhelming society with so many distractions and stimuli.
So instead of allowing concerns about the school or the
classroom drive our efforts, we must strive to work on
everything that surrounds our teaching because it plays a
20 fundamental role in our relationship with our students. It is
also important to understand, that sometimes school is all the
stability they have in their lives, and the only place in which
they can be themselves.

6.Read text 2 and answer questions 6 to 10:
What is TBL?
How often do we as teachers ask our students to do
something in class which they would do in everyday life using
their own language? Probably not often enough. If we can
make language in the classroom meaningful therefore
5 memorable, students can process language which is being
learned or recycled more naturally.
Task-based learning offers the student an opportunity to
do exactly this. The primary focus of classroom activity is the
task, and language is the instrument which the students use to
10 complete it. The task is an activity in which students use
language to achieve a specific outcome. The activity reflects
real life and learners focus on meaning; they are free to use
any language they want. Playing a game, solving a problem or
sharing information or experiences can all be considered as
15 relevant and authentic tasks. In TBL an activity in which
students are given a list of words to use cannot be considered
as a genuine task. Nor can a normal role play if it does not
contain a problem-solving element or where students are not
given a goal to reach. In many role plays students simply act
20 out their restricted role. For instance, a role play where
students have to act out roles as company directors but must
come to an agreement or find the right solution within the
given time limit can be considered a genuine task in TBL.
In task-based lessons our aim is to create a need to learn
25 and use language. The tasks will generate their own language
and create an opportunity for language acquisition. If we can
take the focus away from form and structures we can develop
our students’ ability to do things in English. That is not to say
that there will be no attention paid to accuracy; work on
30 language is included in each task and feedback and language
focus have their places in the lesson plans. We feel that
teachers have a responsibility to enrich their students’
language when they see it is necessary but students should be
given the opportunity to use English in the classroom as they
35 use their own languages in everyday life.
