Mr. Pham Huy Hung presented UEFers the "linear thinking" learning method
With his teaching experience and impressive IELTS band score, Mr. Pham Huy Hung shared with UEF students the “linear thinking” method, which has two focal points. At the sentence level, it is crucial to read the sentence structure, analyze the main clause, subject, main verb and temporarily leave out details, while the paragraph level requires a focus on identifying the coherence and cohesion between sentences. The unique feature of this approach is to zoom in from the general to the detailed.
Additionally, to help students gain a thorough understanding of this method, the speakers encouraged them to practice some examples and then gave them specific explanations. Valuable and lovely gifts were also presented to boost their spirit of learning English.
