    I ,too,enjoy teaching English like Harry Smith.In fact, I love the English language so much.Im totally in love with this beautiful ,international language! I'm teaching English tuition to school students as well as to working adults.I'm not an expert at English. But I'm always trying some ways and means to improve it.I teach on English Grammar. The internet is a great resource centre to learn about English.I don't prefer my local English authors because I have spotted a lot of grammatical mistakes.
    Every day, I'm learning new things.If you want to improve in this language, you need to first love the language itself.English has gripped my heart so much.I could go on and on speaking about English and its power to effect a change in anyone's life. It has changed my life dramatically! My general knowledge has improved much.I'm CRAZY about English! That's what my friends' say.

    For some teachers it's really very difficult to teach. They have just graduated from the university and they need someone's help. Unfortunately it's the real picture of what I know from the letters of such teachers. We have no right to forget about them. We must help them even if we are short of time. I enjoy teaching because the door of my classroom is always open for young teachers. They not only learn from me but also help me to teach better.

    Today I had another letter from a teacher of English. She wanted to ask for advice. She told me that she lost her temper at the lesson and got very angry with her students whom she loved very much. I just wrote her not to worry about it. We all have difficulties and we have no right to give in because we are teachers. Our students are the best. They make us think and find new methods of teaching. I always tell them I'm very grateful to them for their being so different.

    Hi Harry, I agree with you whole heartedly. Some people think its just another kind of profession, something that you just have to do just because you have chosen it. And if you ask people like these the reason they have chosen to be a teacher....the answer you'll probably get is "Oh, I get more holidays." or "There's more money in it." And I totally agreet with these responses. But at the same time it is also true that you enjoy doing and not just because you have to do .......

    You work very hard and that's very interesting. When I started my teaching career I was very young and full of energy. I could work about as much as you do in your school.My only problem was I had a lot of difficulties and I myself had to overcome them. There was no experienced teacher to help me. Today I'm full of energy too. But I think it's not good to have from 6 to 8 classes a day.Four lessons a day is ok. You both enjoy teaching and you don't get tired at all. I wish you good luck in your teaching career.Cheers!

    I really enjoy teaching at school though my salary is very low. I'm giving private lessons to improve the situation. It's high time the government thought about teachers and doctord in general. If they raise our salary we'll have more free time and school will be saved. Otherwise I don't know what is going to happen to school in the nearest future. The best teachers have mostly left school. The rest are thinking of leaving soon. We must stop it.
