Patience

October 24, 2011 at 18:36 (Uncategorized)

Beginner students require a lot of patience, a lot of simple explaination and a fair amount of board drawing.

Sometimes it also take a lot not to burst out laughing when someone is trying really hard – owl ‘parrot at night’.  But mostly I need patience because my morning student is lazy.

I have noticed when talking to the other teachers about beginner and elementary students, that teachers that have learned, or attempted to learn, an additional language as adults have way more time for the low level students and don’t mind teaching them.  It’s interesting, I would like to look into it further.  But at a much later date.
