How to teach English?

It's a big question actually. Ask yourself some questions: Are you going to teach English to kids or adults? how old are they? what things make them happy? what things are they interested in?

  • Relate your class to their interests.
  • Make your classes interesting and informative.
  • Music helps.
  • Movies help too.
  • When you feel your students are bored, stop! change the class. Search for the flipped classroom.
  • Don't be traditional. It doesn't mean you know a lot that they have to know a lot.
  • Don't make it complicated if their level isn't suitable.
  • Test your students' level before teaching them (all four skills ) 
  • The 45-minute class is pretty good for children. More than that, they will be bored.
  • Sing with your students to help them improve their self-confidence and pronunciation.
  • Remember, if they trust you, you will help them better.
  • Your body language is very important. Always smile.
If you still have any problems, you could write a comment, and I'll help you out.

Now from my 10 years of experience whether learning or teaching. There was an old way to teach English in ESL schools. Although there are lots of ways to help beginners learn vocabulary easier than the teacher-centered method. Using a dynamic lesson and many activities is useful for students to have opportunities to speak well so that they can get the jobs they wanted. Learn about learners' needs. Make the class enjoyable and full of games. Understand that a language takes time to develop. Learning phrases that are used plenty of time in daily life is good. A student must do his best on his own by practicing with other students the things they learned in lessons. This is basic and simple to implement. China has a big market than Europe in the field of language teaching. However, the restrictions in your adventure to have accreditation and good education are hard. Your certification isn't enough to get a working VISA in EFL or ESL schools.

How to choose the material?

It depends on whether you teach students from Spain or America, native or non-native speakers. Someone might say, " Are you kidding, teaching English to native English speakers?" -- I am not kidding. It's a language that has adverbs, adjectives, stories, novels, and lots of hours to learn something new. It's competitive. Now, we have lots of apps that help intermediate and beginner students process the language easier. There are lots of books online. If you are confused about what material to choose for your students, message us on Facebook at Learn Special English.
