Becoming a teacher of any nature, requires a good amount of skills, but becoming an english as a foreign or second language teacher requires a special batch of skills. All types of teachers should have the same general qualities; communication skills, patience, good listening skills, the ability to connect and build relationships with students, hard work ethic, preparation and organization, and be friendly, personable, and approachable. Being a teacher means interacting with people for most of, or part of the day, and sharing your knowledge in an understandable way, with the students. Specifically teaching english as a foreign or second language, the classroom setting becomes a lot more different from that of a traditional one. A classroom can be online, of mixed ages, and even of mixed languages, where it is hard for everyone to communicate. To teach english in this manner, I feel that it is incredibly important to be passionate about what you are doing, understand the impact that learning english can have, and understand the difficulties of learning a new or second language. English in today’s world is the key for so many different opportunities; business matters, going to an english school, exchange, or a career opportunity, the level of english needed is so important. As an english teacher, we hold that in our hands to teach students well, and make sure they are prepared for whatever goals they have involving english. When teachers understand the difficulties the student is going through, and the struggle of learning a new language and being lost, it becomes much easier to relate to the student and to understand how to teach them better and not worse. We’ve all had bad and amazing teachers in our life, and in the same sense that teachers take strategies or ideas that worked well from good teachers, english teachers can take strategies and ideas that helped them learn a new language as well. It is very important to be able to relate to students and to give them the tools they need to learn english. The last thing that I find incredibly important in being a teacher is the ability to adapt. As I went through this course and studied every unit, I found a common thread; that as there is a structure and a way to do things, there are many different types of students, teachers, and ways of learning. How some teachers teach I may not be able to learn, and how some students learn, my students might not be able to. Every classroom and person is built off of a different set of circumstances, and understanding those circumstances and adapting your teaching to them can affect how well the students learn. Teachers should be able to analyze what is working and provide emphasis to that and minimize what isn’t working well in your classroom. There is no one right way to teach english or to be an english teacher, but having these qualities is important no matter how the style of teaching or location. Being patient, understanding, caring, relatable, hard working, friendly, flexible, and a good listener, are important to being a good teacher, and more importantly, a good english as a foreign or second language teacher.
