    Teaching languages or teaching of languages

    Hello!
    I would like to ask you which sentence is correct.
    1) I like teaching of languages.
    2) I like teaching languages.

    Is there any difference depending on the position of the speaker? Does it matter if the speaker is a student (who likes learning the languages) or a teacher (who teaches other people) ?

    Thank you for any comment :)

    "I like teaching languages" means that you personally teach languages and you like it.
    "I like the teaching of languages" means you like the idea of languages being taught. (Note the 'the')

    Note that we don't put a space before a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark and that one single punctuation mark is sufficient at the end of a sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
