1.1.1 Intelligibility: This refers to the ability of a speech or message to be understood clearly. In the context of teaching English, it concerns how well the information shared by the teacher is understood by the learners. One-size-fits-all approach: This teaching approach assumes that the same teaching methods and content are suitable for all students, regardless of their differing backgrounds, personal experiences, and learning styles. 1.1.2 Intelligibility is crucial in a multilingual classroom because students come from various linguistic backgrounds. If the teacher's instructions and materials aren't intelligible or clear, students might not comprehend the content, which could negatively affect their learning progress. Enhancing intelligibility can promote understanding and engagement in the classroom, leading to improved academic achievements among students. 1.1.3 A one-size-fits-all approach fails to address the unique needs, abilities, and cultural backgrounds of each student in a diverse classroom. It sidelines the fact that each learner has a unique set of learning strategies, preferences, and pace of learning. This approach can lead to decreased engagement and motivation among students, and it doesn't promote inclusiveness and equality in a linguistically and culturally diverse classroom. An effective teaching approach should cater to the diverse needs of all learners, facilitating a conducive, inclusive, and dynamic learning environment.
