    Hello,
    please can somebody help me? I’m very new to TEFL and I have got though nearly the whole methodology unit online. I’m now stuck and my date deadline is nearly here I’ve gone all though my notes. My mind has gone blank.

    The assignment is to do a presentation
    Meaning.
    Pronunciation.
    Form of the target language.

    a. Can I borrow a pencil?
    b Can you say it again please?
    c. What does ……… mean?
    d. How do you spell?
    e. I don’t understand?

    It tells me to think about how you would teach meaning of each phrase to the students. You need to do this visually through context and examples remember writing the phrase on the board comes last. I need to do this with a maximum of 100 words.
    I would be grateful of Any advise and help. Thank You.

    Try roleplay to demonstrate meaning

    Have you considered using role play as a way of showing the context and demonstrating the meaning of each sentence?
