“On the off chance that you can’t clarify it essentially, you don’t comprehend it alright.”
– Albert Einstein (1879-1955) German physicist
Rewording matters in discussion too-particularly when learning another dialect!
Experienced English educators realize that understudies must get the hang of rewording aptitudes to finish scholarly composing tasks. Similarly rewording stays a crucial ability for English language students to partake in school homerooms, regular discussions, social circumstances and business exchanges.
The capacity to re-expression and re-state, typically called rewording, permits English understudies to affirm data, precisely pass on that data and maintain a strategic distance from copyright infringement issues when composing papers. Thus, rewording is typically underlined in English as a Second Language (ESL) and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) composing classes. Classes and educators zeroing in on oral abilities from scholarly introductions to straightforward discussions ought to likewise dedicate some consideration regarding summarizing as well.
English language understudies, regardless of whether college or grown-up and youthful or old, must figure out how to affirm data by asking explanation inquiries. This basic aptitude, pivotal to successful rewording, will expand their capacity to gather data, stay away from expensive slip-ups and lessen their regular feeling of anxiety. It’s likewise difficult to precisely reword a discussion on the off chance that one is befuddled about the importance. Some helpful expressions for an audience to ask include:
It is safe to say that you are saying…?
Do you mean?
What are you getting at?
In the event that I comprehend you effectively, you are stating…
So you are stating… Isn’t that so?
Did I get that right?
Speakers can likewise verify whether their gathering individuals and cohorts comprehend their bearings.
Is it true that you are with me?
Would you be able to get me?
Is it safe to say that i was going excessively quick?
Would it be a good idea for me to reword that?
Do you follow?
Is that unmistakable?
Would it be advisable for me to rehash the bearings?
Do you need me to rehash that?
Would it be better for me to rehash that?
Would i be able to respond to any inquiries?
It is safe to say that anybody is lost?
Requesting that cutting-edge English understudies rehash bearings, in various words, can likewise be a viable gathering movement. The bearings can be to an actual area (home, grounds building, historical center) or how to accomplish something basic like finding a definition or sending an email. You can likewise broaden the task by mentioning definite headings on a convoluted system, for example, getting a driver’s permit, applying for a visa or picking another PC.
Besides, you can request that understudies paraphrase your content share a self-portraying story. Understudy A recounts a story, and Student B retells that story with various words to Student C. This rewording exercise additionally helps fabricate a bigger, more pragmatic jargon.
Another instructing method that I have discovered valuable is requesting that understudies reword sayings and citations. This activity, done in gatherings of two, frequently gets done with inquiring as to whether understudies concur or differ with the particular precept or citation. Obviously, understudies need to give an explanation and additionally a guide to help their answers. ESL guides and English educators fortunate to have little classes can expound on this method to coordinate understudy interests.
In the event that English understudies can precisely summarize a perusing, a radio fragment, or a verbal assertion, they can effectively partake in like manner discussions and homeroom conversations. Numerous English educators think little of the significance of this aptitude, and accept understudies comprehend it more than they may. Verbal summarizing exercises permit the two understudies and educators to evaluate listening cognizance abilities in a characteristic, bona fide way.
