The students I teach in my primary school do not show much interest in learning English nor are they motivated to engage in English speaking activities. They are rather shy and get bored easily. They even start communicating in Cantonese when they don’t feel like being part of the lesson. This is one of the biggest challenges I have faced in this school. At any extent, I wanted to solve this problem so that all my lessons achieved their aims successfully. In this article, I write about the lesson I taught about dinosaurs, why I came up with this topic and how it turned out to be a successful lesson.
