Here's why you should Learn a new Language - English.
Why do you call yourself a Personal English Language Trainer - aren't you an English Teacher?
Thank you for asking me that, it's a great question. Well, it's about the changing face of education.
Athletics, the arts, and professional training in business, law, medicine and engineering provide important and more modern educational counter-examples. If the goal is to help learners make meaning of and transfer content in the future, then they have to be coached in how to do so. Coaches lecture, of course. But for far briefer periods and not for most of the course. Indeed, watching good coaches coach is to see new ways of considering our essential question: what’s the best use of class time? When should we lecture, for how long, and on what subjects – if our goal is deft performance with knowledge and understanding?
