    Re: I enjoy teaching English

    I work in a special teaching environment, not in a school but in a prison, together with another teacher. However, this job fits me and my character like a hand in a glove. I love rules and consequences, but I am a warm person as well. Furthermore, I enjoy being surrounded by men (there are not many women there) - my experience has been that men talk less and do more. We teach our (adult) students individually (ISP) and in the classroom. They need to be approached as normal human beings, and education is a way for them to bridge the huge gap between 'indoors' and 'outdoors'. It gives them hope that there is life behind those "bars", and prompts them to channel their energy into becoming better human beings. After all, this is what education is all about. I've worked with adults most of my teaching time, but this one experience is really a challenge for me. I love it.

    * I mean, no one´s going to argue with you when you talk only to yourself for, of course, we don´t start arguments with ourselves, do we?

    I think I member that some time ago you were a little bit afraid of this new challenge (am I right?). I am happy to hear you love it! Indeed it looks a difficult but interesting task. Good luck!

    If you enjoy teaching you'll be a very successful teacher. it doesn't matter where you teach: at school or somewhere else.

    Re: I enjoy teaching English

    There is a textbook for Russian schools which is called "Enjoy English".
    Of course, the textbook is for the students to enjoy learning English. But the teachers can also enjoy teaching English. And consequently they will both enjoy English and have good results.

    I absolutely agree with you Harry. It's very true.
