МЕТОДИЧЕСКИЕ РЕКОМЕНДАЦИИ ДЛЯ ВЫПОЛНЕНИЯ ВНЕАУДИТОРНОЙ САМОСТОЯТЕЛЬНОЙ РАБОТЫ

Методические рекомендации по самостоятельной работе над устной речью

( монологическое и диалогическое высказывание)

Работу по подготовке устного монологического высказывания по определенной теме следует начать с изучения тематических текстов-образцов. В первую очередь необходимо выполнить фонетические, лексические и лексико-грамматические упражнения по изучаемой теме, усвоить необходимый лексический материал, прочитать и перевести тексты-образцы. Затем на основе изученных текстов нужно подготовить связное изложение, включающее наиболее важную и интересную информацию. При этом необходимо произвести обработку материала для устного изложения с учетом индивидуальных возможностей и предпочтений студента, а именно:

1) заменить трудные для запоминания и воспроизведения слова известными лексическими единицами:

All people are proud of their magnificent capital - All people are proud of their great capital;

2) сократить «протяженность» предложений:

Culture is a term used by social scientists for a people’s whole way of life.

Culture is a term used for the whole people’s way of life.

3) упростить грамматическую (синтаксическую) структуру предложений:

I felt I was being watched I felt somebody was watching me.

4) произвести смысловую (содержательную) компрессию текста: сократить объем текста до оптимального уровня (не менее 12-15 предложений).

Обработанный для устного изложения текст необходимо записать в рабочую тетрадь, прочитать несколько раз вслух, запоминая логическую последовательность освещения темы, и пересказать.



Методические рекомендации по самостоятельной работе с текстом


Правильное понимание и осмысление прочитанного текста, извлечение информации, перевод текста базируются на навыках по анализу иноязычного текста, умений извлекать содержательную информацию из форм языка. При работе с текстом на английском языке рекомендуется руководствоваться следующими общими положениями:

  1. Работу с текстом следует начать с чтения всего текста: прочитайте текст, обратите внимание на его заголовок, постарайтесь понять, о чем сообщает текст.

  2. Затем приступите к работе на уровне отдельных предложений.

  3. Переведите письменно текст, используя словарь.

For example, if a guest in a non-smoking room complains that the room smells like cigarette smoke, you may suggest a room-move. Once you come up with a solution, make sure to apologize to the guest for the inconvenience and let him or her know that you are there to help.
