During my study in new zealand, I benefit a lot not only from the course, but online tutor as well as the teachers in excel college. From this course, I have learned various teaching methods and techniques such as ESA, boomerang and patchwork. I have also learned how to prepare and plan a lesson effectively. I have learned it is important to be respectful to students and attitude and manners are equally important in a teacher?s job. I?ll try to be a creative teacher and keep staying up to date all the time. I?ll do what I can to make good use of course books and other recourses, such as information on website / Internet, newspapers and magazines. I have learned that games are not just a waste of time, and that there is actually a lot that we can teach in the form of games and play, especially to younger students. I?ll do my best to design various teaching activities which are interesting for students in order to get them to fully participate in the class. Above all, I will work as hard as teachers here to keep learning new techniques and keep improving myself to be an excellent teacher.
