Teaching English

I think that teaching English to any kind of students is a challenge, it is a new whole experience every day, and also you learn from your teaching. as they say, you are a babysitter, you are a doctor, you are a conselor, you are an adviser, you are many more things, but you need to enjoy all this things.
Somebody said that teaching English was easy, that all you have to do is to present your topic and sit down and enjoy the class, I do not think the same way, first we need to like our profesion, second, like I said, we need to enjoy your job and, finally you need to prepare well your class.
I would like to give some advices to those English teachers that do not like what they are doing.
If you feel sick, do not go to work because you might get your cold to your students or they might not understand nothing from a teacher ho has a running nose.
If you found a new rule in the target language, share it with your students.
If you make a mistake or do not know something, do not lie to your students and tell them that for the next class you will found the answer.

This is a good video where you can see how to teach English in a fun way.

Get ideas and put them into practice, and if you have new ideas, share them with all of us.

Sometimes we as teachers need a little help from other teachers, so please share any ideas that you have, or if you found any more videos about learning English in a fun way or having fun with English grammar.

    Well, you’re right!! We, as teachers, need to enjoy this fabulous profession. I have to confess that at the beginning it wasn’t as easy as it seemed, but as the time goes by, I have learned many techniques and I think I have improved the way I teach. I have to say that I enjoy being in front of one group, sharing all the things I know and at the same time, learning from each of my students. Every class is one experience and you have to take an advantage of that.

    I also find teaching very challenging, but I believe that one of the most important things which influences your practice is LOVE. If we truly enjoy what we do, that will always make a difference. I agree with you and Ray say, every class is a different experience, and sometimes there are many different roles the ones we have to play. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to share not only my knowledge, but my heart. I want to keep on learning new things and enjoying what I do. Being a teacher for me is a great opportunity to make a difference.

    Hello Toto. I like your post, and I want to tell you that maybe you are just wlking your first steps in this profession, well, just hold on. Remenber, this is more than a profession, something you do for a living, it is a calling. Yes, you have to be a mentor. a provider of knowledge, a father, a counselor, a punisher, a lider, a brother, a psiquiatist and so on, and all this for free. Just hold on, you have to like what you are doing. Bye.
