InterestsI believe that students learn better in a relaxed and unstressful environment, so my classes are informal and friendly. although still structured & purposeful. Above all, I want my students to feel inspired, contented and optimistic when they leave my classes. I teach them to be creative, imaginative & informative, & I encourage them to laugh as they learn. My classes are student-centred and fun, and the language and activities are targeted to useful, every day situations. We focus on games, interactive worksheets and conversations to keep the language alive and memorable, followed by short written assignments,which help the students to retain the language accurately. Like them, I come from a different cultural background, so I understand their problems, nervousness and new goals in Canada. The sharing and understanding of differeing cultures is the key to success and personal enrichment in my classes. I love my students and my job!
