GOOD TEACHERS DON'T TEACH
The word 'teacher' may come from the verb 'to teach' - but that's exactly what good teachers don't do. Think about it. You have no difficulty speaking English. You are not there, in the classroom, to improve your English. In fact you're almost incidental in the classroom. The only reason you're there is that your students need to *learn* English. That's what they're paying for. It's a strange situation. They're paying you for something that ultimately they have to do themselves. Perhaps they don't realise this. But you can. And when you see this situation for what it is, you can adopt a different attitude, one of helping, advising, encouraging - one of drawing out from the student what is actually there already. Your students already speak English. They just don't realise it!
