An authoritarian style of leadership may create a climate of fear, with little or no room for dialogue and with complaining being considered futile.
We make subtitling affordable and cost-effective
In a study of public-sector union members, approximately one in five workers reported having considered leaving the workplace as a result of witnessing bullying taking place. Rayner explained the figures by pointing to the presence of a climate of fear in which employees considered reporting to be unsafe, where bullies had been tolerated previously despite management knowing of the presence of bullying. A culture of fear at the workplace runs contrary to the "key principles" established by W.
Edwards Deming for managers to transform business effectiveness. One of his fourteen principles is to drive out fear in order to allow everyone to work effectively for the company. The consumption of mass media has had a profound effect on instilling the fear of terrorism in the United States, though acts of terror are a rare phenomenon.
With the rise in use of smartphones and social media, people are bombarded with constant news updates, and able to read stories related to terrorism, stories that come from all corners of the globe. Media fuels fear of terrorism and other threats to national security, all of which have negative psychological effects on the population, such as depression, anxiety, and insomnia.

It goes without saying that the first time anybody stands up and delivers their first lesson will be a nerve-racking experience. However, it is also an experience that mellows over time, and one that all teachers remember fondly as time goes by and they feel more at home in a classroom. There will be some of you out there with experience of teaching in a classroom already.

You may be well versed in employing many different methodologies and strategies in your classroom already, but many or most will have been with native English speaking students, or those with a near-native levels of English. This means that some of the skills we will be equipping you with may feel a little alien at first, but your experience will not prove to be a hindrance. Indeed, you will already have successful classroom management skills that can be adapted to fit a second language classroom fairly easily and other trainees on the course will benefit from your presence.
In addition, some of the skills that you will learn on the course can also be adapted to work in a classroom of native speakers too, and it is not unusual for experienced teachers to comment on exactly this after completing a good TEFL course. As EFL teachers we will select target language that is appropriate for both the skill level and the age of the students. In short, the students will be able to name the 6 food items by the end of the lesson and tell whether they like them or not. You may have delivered a few presentations in your time but the type of presentation we deliver in a second language classroom will differ quite a bit from those.
For a start, you were speaking to proficient users of the English language about something they were, most likely, vaguely familiar with anyway.
Learners are alert, have focused their attention on the new language and are responsive to cues that show them that something new is coming up. A simple way to ensure some of the above is if the teacher makes the target language interesting to the students. The language will of course, be of more interest to the students if it is put into some type of context that the students are familiar with.

Naturally, the easier it is for them to relate to the context, the more likely they are to be interested in the language presented. A teacher might make exaggerated facial expressions whilst presenting these ideas to make the ideas both fun and easy to perceive for the students. We want to ensure that the learners both see and hear the target language easily. So if a whiteboard is being used, it should be well organized with different colors being used to differentiate between different ideas. If images are being used, there should be no ambiguity as to what they represent and sounds made by the teacher should not only be clear, but should be repeated and the teacher needs to check the material has been perceived correctly, and can do this by asking the students to repeat the sounds he or she is making.
Therefore, there is an onus on the teacher not to use any unnecessary language at this stage. The commands should, whenever possible, be supported by clear body language. The learners must be able to understand the meaning of the material. So in the case of likes and dislikes they perhaps need to see an image of a happy face and associate it with liking something and a sad face and associate that with disliking something.
In the videos you will see, expect to see the teacher doing this during the presentation stage. The learners will have to retain the information from the presentation and use it further on in the lesson when we have consolidated their learning of the material and we will give them an opportunity to produce it on their own. For the target language to be retained by the learners, it needs to be engaging and we need to consider that different learners will remember the material in different ways. Some by the way the material is seen, others by the way it is heard, and others if it is associated with a physical movement perhaps.
We need to make sure our presentation has something to enable all these types of learners to retain the information. Below are some of the characteristics of an effective language practice:. The practice activity must have learners rehearsing the skill or material it purports to practice.

So in the case of the lesson you will view shortly, it must have the learners practicing both the food vocabulary items and the structure of the dialogue, i. Before we ask our learners to practice new language, we must have ensured that they have some understanding of the new language. We will have done this during the presentation stage. If they have not had the new language clearly presented to them and been aided in being given some understanding of it, then they the learners will not be practicing at this stage but will be going through another initial learning stage.
