“Will you consider including synchronous tools in your future EFL classroom in Saudi Arabia? Will there be any drawbacks?”
Synchronous tools possess the advantage of being able to engage people instantly and at the same point in time. These tools allow people to connect at a single point in time, at the same time. There are many tools that can be used with English language students such as audio, web conferencing, online, chat and instant messaging. In my future as an English language teacher and also as a digital native, I will use synchronous tool in my EFL classroom for several reasons. First, I think it’s important for learning the language. The language learning depends on communication between teacher and student. It will be useful to use synchronous tools. Other reason, it will help me to achieve my teaching goal to make my student able to communicate with other and I can make them feel enjoyment during the class.
In my opinion there are no drawbacks for using synchronous tools in Saudi Arabia.
