Critical Thinking


This teaching resource suits the needs of beginner university students who study in Teacher Education, Pedagogy, or Slovene major and aspire to acquire or teach Slovene as a foreign language. They need to develop their listening skills and at the same time they need to expand their vocabulary. This resource assists both the lecturer, who can use this video with students in the classroom, and students who, rather autonomously, can explore it as well.

Case study

The target students are primarily the ones attending teacher training, pedagogy, or Slovene major programmes of any level (Bachelor, Master, PhD, or even Post-Graduate). The teaching resource is ideal to be used in small seminar groups (up to 15 students). The employed method should incorporate clear instructions from the teacher who is to guide the activities in which gradually takes on a facilitator role from the initial one of an instructor. Cooperative project work is also essential for effective discussion of the topic. As a result, students will practice the Slovene language by developing their listening and speaking skills while widening their vocabulary. To avoid any risks, students are to be in a safe distance to see and hear the video well. The resource can be used in subject-specific intracurricular or extracurricular university seminars.


Warm-up activity: Ask the students to collect as many language games for practicing personal pronouns in their native language as they can. Give them sufficient time for preparation. When they have finished, play the games with the students. Step 1: Pre-watching activity. Tell the students they are going to watch a video on Slovene personal pronouns. Ask the students to pay special attention to the way of writing and pronouncing them. Ask them to write down the pronouns. The video will allow students to recognise and practise vocabulary, in addition to practising their listening skills. Watch the video from 3:50 till 5:00. Alternatively, more advanced students can watch the whole content. Step 2: Watching the video. Students watch the video once or twice and do their task. Make sure the quality of it is acceptable and that students can hear the video with no interference, and also that they can see it well. Step 3: Students asked go to the blackboard and write one Slovene personal pronoun on it. Afterwards, all the students practice the pronunciation of the respective personal pronouns with the help and guidance of the teacher. Follow-up activity: Ask the students to make a selection of the games they collected at the beginning of the class based which ones they can play using the Slovene personal pronouns. Give the students enough time for preparation. When they are ready, play the games they chose with them, but this time use the Slovene personal pronouns while playing.

This video is useful for students who learn Slovene at a beginner level. While watching the video, they can study Slovene personal pronouns together with their pronunciation, and simultaneously they can learn vocabulary. Lecturers can incorporate the video in their lessons to cover subject-related activities with its help. With the accompanying activities, students study Slovene personal pronouns in writing and speaking alike, learn vocabulary and build their Slovene skills by listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Different activities and types of student work make this compulsory part of language dynamic and interesting. Innovation: Knowing personal pronouns is a must when it comes to learning any language. Even if the study material is fixed, the variability potential of accompanying activities can make the students discover the importance of autonomous, indirect, passive, and subliminal learning and skill development what they can extrapolate to other fields of studies, making the whole learning process closer, more natural, and enjoyable to them and their future students. The language of the resource is Slovene, therefore it cannot be used in classes of teaching other languages. However, the accompanying activities can fit any other language. Skills assessment and validation: The students’ understanding, and acquisition of the video’s material can easily be monitored before, during and after watching it. Although the video represents a fixed content, it can be played once or twice, altogether or interrupted while the accompanying activities are variable. Usability: The essential language topic of personal pronouns in the video, its length, accompanying activities, and little technical requirements makes this resource easily usable. The video is usable in classrooms with computers with internet, speakers, and projectors. Students can also watch it at home.
