*** +++ *** I have learned the following: ?Be kind to students and sensitive to their needs; ?Be well prepared for every lesson; ?Do proper lesson planning, as this will promote confidence and ensure a smooth lesson delivery; ?Avoid teacher centered lessons and encourage students to participate more; ?Have a variety of activities during the lesson to avoid boredom; I am planning to incorporate all of the above-mentioned points in my teaching. Besides this, I will also ask students for feedback on a regular basis, either by means of a questionnaire or just an informal chat, to determine whether they are enjoying the class or whether I need to change my teaching style in any way in order to cater to their needs.
