There are changes in some of my students that sometimes amazed myself - they changed just because they feel they need to change; not because I told them to change. I'm just a mere teacher - who likes to help my students to become themselves and I will not force them to do the opposite!
Well... some of the comments did make me laugh my heart out; my cakes and my cupcakes were everywhere in the comment spaces.
I can be emotional sometimes but when I'm in class, I'd try my very best not to show my weaker point and I tried to smile every time I saw their faces. I like being surrounded by students who like to try out something new. They participated in every activity that I did in class and they can't wait to do different activities in class.
I don't really believe in orthodox ways in teaching English Language. The language itself can be hard on certain people and if I were to teach them using traditional ways, they will feel bored in my class. In leading them to a new journey full with fun and learning experience, I tried different methods and activities just to help them to acquire the language.
When I was teaching in schools, I used to have limited time in helping my students to acquire the language, but still I managed to do different activities in class - games, treasure hunts, language activities and so many more. So, I tried to apply the same activities here (in Matriculation) and the one hour given is a bless for me to make various interesting activities.
So...who said that English class is boring? You can ask that to my students!
