I would like to share the most memorable experience for learning and teaching language. I have been teaching English several years. I have had the opportunity to work in different schools and environments. I have used my skills as a teacher to adapt to the different situations with passion. I love to work with different types of learners and programs. I have learned that the most important element that determines the success or failure of any initiative in education is the teacher. This has led me to realize my overall goal, which is to continue to improve as a teacher. What my point is that as a teacher and becoming a great teacher, I have learned a lot of good things. Language learning and teaching should be concerned with authentic life.
When I was a University student I got a chance to study in Canada as an exchange student. In my courses I studied the practical teaching methods Audio linguist, Total Physical Response and Community Language Learning. The background knowledge and theories I learned have been very useful to me. I am especially interested in volunteer work and group activity. I volunteered in the Thursday morning preschool program called Kids’ Kollege in Canada. I was primarily responsible for taking care of babies and preschoolers, helping them with crafts and games, and to put away the program supplies. So I got good experiences not only the educational subjects but also to learn and understand from the views of my classmates and my students in extracurricular activities.
I developed a great awareness through meeting of new cultures and various people. It means learning second language should be in the real situation, authentic life.
