  • it's Sometimes it's really difficult to get our students toe illicit a response in class.

  • So a strategy that instructors can use is to double wait time after asking a question so students have a time to process the answer.

  • What is?

  • What's two plus four plus six plus eight?

  • Yes, it's 20.

  • Now.

  • You're probably saying to yourself, Oh, you didn't give me enough time It was gonna get there.

  • And this is how language students are.

  • They need a little bit more time to process the information.

  • They know how to do it, how to add the two plus four plus a six plus eight.

  • But it takes more time.

  • So as an instructor, if you take that time and give them instead of the three or four seconds of wait time, try stretching it to 20 or 30 seconds.

  • The students will have more time to process, and they'll feel more comfortable, and we'll be able to give an answer.

  • Same thing if you're a student, ask your teachers say Hey, don't tell me yet.

  • Give me a second to really think it through and you'll find that if you give that given that extra process time, you'll come up with the answer.

  • So if you're an instructor, when you give the question zipper up Onley one uncomfortable during the wait time is you give your students the same amount of time.

  • Students.

  • If you're the one that's trying to find the answer to that question, really take your time.

  • Tell your professor or instructor to hold off and then answer that question.

  • Good luck.
