Because I was a teacher and the inspector who was in charge of it. I was writing my reports according to the programme. The door of classroom has always been open for everybody. They could come and listen to my lessons and even study with little schoolchildren. I have always been independent in teaching and I will always be. Nobody can stop me teach my students who like the lessons I give them. My critics are my students. They can change the process if they want.
    I admire you. But in our country we must follow the programme adopted by the ministry of education. It is the compulsory in the whole country. Teachers no right to refuse them. But I am thinking about to teach my student by mixing between my own material and textbook of the ministry of education. In our high school, we only can independent in lesson plan but can't independent in textbook. We can teach in own method but still follow ministry of education

    And what if you teach your own material based on the textbooks? I mean you can remove all uninteresting exerceses and texts and do listening one day and forum(free discussion) another day. I'm sure you can. From what you write I can see that you are very energetic and hard working. I hope you are ambitious too. In this case you'll have no problem. Don't forget your students love English and they will gladly learn what you teach them. I don't speak about politics at my lessons. We speak about music, sport, literature, culture and what not except politics.

    Thanks for the links. I'll visit the websites as soon as I have spare time. Could you tell me a little more about your natine language? I mean "Do everybody read, write and speak your native language?'' How well are you taught English at school and kindergarten?

    You can learn English better if you work hard. Also you must must keep the most important rule of learning English i.e every day at least one hour to devote to English. Good luck!

    Thanks for your encouragment. Right now I teach own material based on the textbooks. I find something that really interesting and helpful for my students from the textbooks and mix them with my materials as long as they don't go far from the programmes of ministry of education.I still follow the texts of MOET but I design in my ways. It seems flexiable. So my students enjoy it very much. I am very grateful with what your experiences that you have shared to me.

    Yes, most popular grammar references is used in my country is Raymond Murphy's Essential Grammar. Beside it I use some grammar books written by A.J Thomson & A.V Martinet, and some by Betty Schrampfer Aza such as: Fundamentals of English grammar, understanding and using english grammar, basic english grammar from elementary to advance.

    Well, I see you have no problem with grammar books. I hope you are allowed to use foreigh textbooks to teach vocabulary. I must say that you feel your success in teaching English only after a long period of time, when your students get enough knowledge and start using it properly.
