    Native English Teacher Sharon

     

    Tell us a bit about your past experiences teaching English

    I was on a website called InterPals where I taught English to non native English speakers. I have had much experience in helping people learn English, correcting grammar, and explaining why and how the English language works.

     

    Tell us more about your education?

    I have graduted high school, and had some college. English has always been one of my favorite subjects. I have a great understanding of it, and enjoy learning, reading, and speaking English

     

    How would you describe a typical English lesson at Spoken English Practice?

    I would like it just being a conversation, where I mostly ask questions, and listen to your answers, but put my own input too, in case that might help you learn sentence structure. I would stop to take the time to correct, and answer any questions in regards to the English language.

     

    What are your favorite conversation topics?

    I love to talk about food, fashion, art, literature, difference in cultures, and nature!

     

    In your experience, what area in English do students need the most help?

    I think that sentence structure, and pronunciation are two things that are really important to getting the language down, beyond that I think grammar is a largely important thing, that even native English speakers have trouble with.

     

    What are your top 3 tips to ESL students around the world?

    Never be afraid to make mistakes. Learning is all about learning from those mistakes, especially when it comes to language. –repetition and studying pronunciation are great ways to get the English language to become more natural. -Don’t forget to have fun while you’re learning. It’ll help you to want to learn more!

     

    A little bit about what you like to do when you are not teaching English.

    I enjoy cooking, reading, making art, sewing, and getting out in nature. I can always go for a great movie, though.

     

    What kind of students do you prefer?

    I have no preference thus far. Positive people, who are eager to learn, and converse!
