Methods in EMI

Methods in EMI are basically just the same as in teaching with mother tongue. My goal is to become fluent. However, when teaching in English there is often more variation in the student’s ability to follow or understand . Some students may be very fluent native speakers and some are not. Therefore I may need to repeat a little more and perhaps use simple words and example as well as a few more (computer etc.) exercises or activities instead of lecturing.

Also some Asian students may nod their heads like they agree and understand but actually they are just conveying that they try to listen and not much can be said about the understanding. I did not know that first. Perhaps in the future more examples or questions are needed in order to check if they really understood. However, a good method is almost any method that creates strong learning, in EMI or in any language.
