The article analyzes the current issues of the mother tongue, the teaching of which in primary school serves to develop speaking skills in the areas of speaking, reading, and writing. According to the National Curriculum, the development of language-related behavioral skills aims to nurture a person whi develops thought-provoking skills, listening culture, social communication and interactive skills. The development of oral skills in the teaching process has a systematic character, the vocabulary of students is gradually enriched according to the classes and their speech is also improved. After learning to read and write, reading habits are strengthened, elementary analysis of texts begins, the content and purpose of reading and writing change.In primary school, the skills of written speech, consistent and logical expression of ideas are developed. It also pays due attention to the development of students' self-expression and creative skills. In elementary school, we use purposeful and effective activities to enable the student to read and write thoughtfully.In primary school, we use purposeful and effective activities to enable the student to read and write thoughtfully. Work is also underway to develop and develop students' comprehension and interpretation skills, critical thinking or reading assessment.In the process of teaching, we apply approaches that will facilitate the process of overcoming personal, personal, social, professional or professional difficulties independently.
The relevance and importance of child rights protection has risen significantly in recent 100 years. It was preconditioned by the lack of standards on child protection in the industrialized countries at the beginning of the 20th century. The standards on child rights have undergone a complicated process of development, which started with adoption of the Geneva Declaration on the Rights of the Child in 1924. In 1989 the United Nations General Assembly adopted The Convention on the Rights of the Child, being ratified by the majority of the countries around the world and is deemed to be the fundamental document (https://www.unicef.org/child-rights-convention/history-child-rights). In Georgia, the issue of Children’s rights protection drew increasing attention in 1994, after the country had become a part to the Convention on the Rights of Child and therefore, had undertaken the obligation of protection and promotion of children’s rights and their freedom. On September 20, 2019 one more significant step in this direction was taken when Georgian Parliament adopted The Code on the Rights of the Child - very first Article of which reads as follows: The purpose of this Code is to ensure the welfare of the child by promoting the effective implementation of the Constitution of Georgia, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, its supplementary protocols and other international legal acts recognized by the State (https://www.matsne.gov.ge/en/document/view/4613854?publication=0).Proper mplementation of the Convention on The Rights of the Child in the country implies formation of a child as a full member of the society, preparing him/her for life challenges and independent life – being the very objective of gradual introduction of the children’s rights and the mechanisms of their defense in the sphere of education. The present article overviews the educational programs of state universities in Georgia, particularly Batumi Shota Rustaveli State University and reveals the actual state of teaching about children’s rights. The research methodology includes the qualitative and quantitative methods, in particular, collection of information – the syllabus of all the educational programs, their classification, analysis, in-depth interviews with the lecturers/teachers, comparing the outcomes of the program with its aims and revealing the results according to the components. Basing on the outcomes of the research, it will be possible to define the future perspectives of integration of teaching of the children’s rights into the educational programs at Batumi State University and the strategic planning of their implementation procedures.
The pandemic crisis caused by Kovid-19 has put Georgia and the whole world community in a difficult situation. The transition from traditional attendance to distance learning has been and is a great challenge for the field of education. In such a situation, it is important to use forms of teaching / learning that, despite the spatial distance, further ensure the cooperation and quality of the participants in the education system. The scientific literature on collaborative writing was summarized using a qualitative method. The aim of the research was also to describe a collaborative learning writing project focusing on endangered animals and birds. Evaluating the results of a practical project should highlight the creative texts that have been created through the online tool. A detailed discussion of the types of text allowed students to freely express their thoughts in a variety of ways on a virtual sheet of paper. According to the project participants, the way of personification was impressive, which made them creatively experience the condition of animals and birds. However, it should be noted that the complex approach to this project has developed not only written competence for language learners, but also all the necessary social and communication skills, as well as enriched thematic vocabulary in terms of ecology and natural sciences, strengthened syntactic structures. It was also a great charm that, unlike the textbook, working on the project gave more freedom to the students, which increased their degree of autonomy and cooperation. Discussing the issues selected by them activated a positive emotional bond. It should also be noted that the development of emotional intelligence is an important prerequisite for human success. In conclusion, it can be said that one of the most important criteria for the success of any project is the high degree of student involvement, which allowed us to achieve the set goals despite the initial difficulties.
It is now accepted that sign languages have a rich morphological structure in both flexion and derivation terms. Most foreign scholars believe that sign languages show simultaneous morphology rather than a consistent sequential one. Morphological marking of verbal arguments in the Georgian Sign Language (GESL) verbal paradigm is performed in three ways: 1. Deictive marking, such as the incorporated verb paradigm; 2. Possessive-destination marking with semantic content, such as version category, expressing respectful and disrespectful forms, as an additional semantic marking for an indirect object; and 3. Morpho-syntactic marking – adding the morphological markers for arguments conveyed by nouns. The subject of the transitive verb in the aorist is expressed with an ergative case, for the rest verbal forms the subject is in nominative (unmarked), while the indirect object is often marked with a deictive marker of dative case. Thus, here we have the combination of the abovementioned first and third types. In GESL (and in other sign languages as well) such combinations are usual. The semantic groups of verbs in sign languages can be distinguished according to the following two principles:
The article highlights that a language helps a person to describe the world. The problem is not the correct language usage, but the mechanism of understanding the environment. It is mentioned in the article that a language provides communication. By percieving the norms, the rules and the peculiarities of communication, a person becomes a member of the society and his speech acquires the qualities of understanding.The article highlights that one of the main characteristics of the communicative behavior of different linguacultural societies is the peculiarity of speech, which is specific for different age, gender, social groups and is expressed in various but in the same typical situations. The article emphasizes that this type of nomination communicative strategy can be applied any time during the course of an interaction as a way of continuing the communication. The interrelationships between communication and courtesy strategies, communicative functions, characteristic categories of oral communication, the strategies of positive and negative courtesy are discussed in the article. We have found that communicative dominants are closely related to the courtesy system of a particular linguacultural community. They are formed on its basis, as a result of regular use of established communication strategies.The article emphasizes that the communicative dominances typical to the verbal behavior of the people are especially important in both theoretical and pragmatic terms, because it is possible to describe the national style of communication in perspective and to develop a didactic rule of communication that ensures the development of communicative language learning.
Technology has an important influence on the way many people learn today and has certain benefits. The aim of the paper is to show that only existence of new technologies and equipment isn’t sufficient for successful learning process and developing transferrable skills of learners. A number of factors are involved in determining whether and how technology should be integrated into the classroom and how likely it is to impact positively on learner motivation Among them are digital storytelling using Animoto and Kaltura, also using technologies such as virtual and augmented reality, Learning Management System(LMS), online apps such as kahoot, quizlet, mentimeter, padlet and others. However, successful, motivating use of technology depends on teachers and learners knowing how to realize its affordances. In this paper I used descriptive, qualitative method and resulted in that, teachers need to act as a learner, a leader, a citizen, a collaborator, a designer, a facilitator and an analyst to use technology productively in teaching process. As for learners, they need to know the following skills: Identifying learning needs; Setting SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time- bound) goals; Planning learning; Selecting Resources; Practice; Monitoring process; Assessment and revision(Reinders, 2010).So, support for teachers and learners is at the heart of realizing the potential benefits of technology for motivation and learning.
The present research focuses on the conceptualization of strong negative emotions experienced by the personages involved in conflicts, or quarrels, in contemporary British and Russian drama and approaches them from a cognitive linguistic perspective. The study attempts to reconstruct both potentially universal and culture-specific conceptual metaphors through the establishment of a set of correspondences or mappings between a ‘source’ and ‘taget’ domains. The materials yielded a number of culture-specific metaphors alongside with a number of potentially universal metaphors shared by the Anglo and Russian cultures, whose universality could be accounted for by the shared embodiment.
Debate dates back to ancient times, when disagreements between people first arose.Formally, the debate originated in ancient Greece, where it was part of the institution of democracy, when politicians debated with each other about the validity of proposed laws, discussing its merits and demerits.Rhetoric is a form of oral journalism. Written journalism is what has so far reached first in the form of epistolary and then print editions and today is considered synonymous with journalism. These two branches are still considered to be integral attributes of journalism. If you do not have a solid system of argumentation, it will certainly be difficult for you to enter into controversy with an opponent. However, there is a golden rule that is undoubtedly important along with a deep knowledge of the issue. Citizens used the debate to defend themselves. Arguing on both sides of the issue, students also studied with great interest to better understand its essence. Some of the debaters, called sophists, aimed to win the debate, they focused on the style of the audience and their persuasion.The golden rule for mastering the mastery of polemics is good manners. It refers to self-control, inner form of behavior, relationships with other people, expressions used in conversation, tone, intonation, bowing, gestures and even facial expressions.Mastering polemics requires a lot of effort. In addition to the established rules, it also takes into account personal dignity. For example, restraint and humility are considered good manners in society. The tone of the conversation should be delightful and original, you should show learning in this matter and not pedantry, you should be funny and not noisy, polite and not ostensibly grown up.Intelligence is not only in education, but also in the ability to be able to understand others. It manifests itself in thousands and tens of thousands of trifles, for example, in the knowledge to argue respectfully, to listen to an argument.
