Online English teaching has become more and more popular and worldwide, it not only can save a lot of time , but also supply many possibilities to study at any time ,any place as long as you have wifi. Nowadays, many adults choose online courses because of the convenience.I have taught adults online for almost a year,I chose this job because the working time is more flexible, and also I feel self-satisfied when I see my students making progress.But how to teach English to adults online?There must have some effective ways for us to take as references.Through my teaching experience, I list some of them which I want to share with other teachers.1. Well prepared your lessons, you may go through the contents ahead of time and prepare enough one to one activities or discussions and do prepare more as supplement in case the class finishes earlier than expected.2.Many adults learners are real beginners, they even don't know the Phonics, they start to learn English with fear and lack of confidence.As their teacher, at the first learning stage, the most important thing is to build their confidence and interest, encourage them more and tell them how much progress they have made.At the same time, supply some really useful knowledge step by step, in a slow but controlled pace.Gradually, when they find they're really making progress, they can read words and say a sentence by themselves, they start to find the interest on learning English.This is very important for the beginners.3. Know their needs well and monitor their progress.At the first period of classes,teachers will try to know the real needs on why the student wants to learn English, most adults have very specific reasons for learning English.They might be preparing for studying abroad,or are just trying to gain a new skill for their career.Some mothers, they study English because they want to make progress along with their kids.No matter what goal it is, our teaching plan should be more strategic and scheduled in detail, like what grammar or vocabulary he would learn in the second class, etc.Teachers need to closely monitor their learning problems and progress to help them reach their specific goals. Try to set a test regularly to the students in order to know the learning feedback on time.4.Apply more activities which are level-appropriate, and age-appropriate.Even if your adult students are basic beginners, make sure your lessons are relevant to their lives.Using children's songs is not a good choice.Plan your lessons around their present goals,such as how to fill out a job application,prepare for a citizenship test, or practice interview questions for a new job.5. Keep a good rapport with your students and create a relaxing and fun class atmosphere.Making friends with your students is beneficial, not only can know their aim and weakness on English well, but also decrease the misunderstanding between you and them.Once they have got accustomed to your teaching style and procedures, you will find the progress is speeding.Remember,encouragement is paramount with adults.They maybe easily discouraged if they feel like they're struggling.Before beginning to teach, get a clear picture of your student's language level, and use what already know to help them build their confidence.From there, you can start adding new language , and they'll feel better knowing they have a foundation to stand on.In all, teaching English to adults is challenging ,but enjoyable work.I feel more satisfactory than any other jobs do.Live and help others to live, grow and help others to grow.This is my life belief and being an English teacher helps me realize my dream.Fortunately, I grow with my students everyday.I hope you do ,too.
