Why is learning proper teaching skills important you ask? I'll tell you why! At the moment I am teaching at a training school in Changsha , Hunan , China. I came to China with no previous knowledge of teaching , and really no desire to actually teach or plan any good lessons. After my almost two years of teaching , a lot has changed. I now know how to properly manage my unruly classes , how to plan lessons , how to be assertive as well as patient and friendly when needed , and much much more. Secondly , the difference between my lessons from that time compared to my lessons now are night and day. My student's motivation levels and desire to learn has increased so much! Just a simple change of the teacher's attitude and demeanor in the classroom has changed my students so much. For example : -The students willingness to listen to the teacher has improved drastically -Any problems that I had with classroom management have gone away (for the most part) - The overall atmosphere in the classroom is now more relaxed and there is no tension Building a good connection with your students and getting to know them on a personal level really helps. Lot's of my students will call my by my first name and ask how my day was and generally just want to get to know me better. This really gets them interested in speaking English and they are participating and active for most of the lessons. When I had first started my teaching career I ended up with what seemed like a nightmare of a class. "All these students are the worst!" I thought. But then I realized it wasn't them. It was me. My lack of proper teaching skills and even a motivation to teach had bled through to these children. In turn there was no respect for the teacher and the class had no motivation to learn. After really putting my foot down and studying some basic classroom management and teaching skills the class transformed. They are now one of my favorite classes. I am now the manager of the foreign teacher department as my training centre. Most of the teachers come from their countries fresh with no previous teaching experience. I try my best to teach my staff the importance of the utilization of proper teaching skill and technique in the classroom and the fundamental effect is has for the children and even the teacher (often using myself as the example). In conclusion , learning proper teaching skills is very important because it affects so much! Such as motivation , overall happiness and the student's desire to learn and speak english. Learning how to properly teach using the right skills and methods is really the most important thing , in my opinion! Without this , the classes will fall into disorder , students wont respect you , and you as a teacher will start to lose determination! Every class you have will be affected in a negative way if you don't use some proper technique. I've found this TEFL course quite helpful in confirming lots of the things I have learned first hand in China. I hope it will serve me well in my future years of teaching! Thanks Josh
