    where is the problem?

    My students do not understand me while talking. While explaining I feel as if I am talking alone, no one seems to get what I say. I want to know where is the problem, in me or in my students. thanks.

    Have you asked the students? What ages are they? Are you speaking to them with words they haven't learned yet?

    I am not a teacher.

    I am confident that there will be some teachers of English who can give you better advice than I. If they are not motivated to listen properly, perhaps you can find out from them what would make them interested.

    Good luck!

    Barring the corrupted students, personally, I think that every student always wants to get knowledge from their teachers. Frankly, I guess that it is from the way you teach them. If you can, try to change the ways you are teaching them. Ex: Do something that attract them more, arouse the interest in your topics. I hope this will help. Good luck
