I am currently taking 10 months out of PR to explore a culture I fell in love with during childhood family holidays.
While I am here, I hope to learn about new cultures, learn a new language and develop my understanding of new markets.
I have day-to-day responsibility for planning and holding lessons, specifically for those students advanced in English and those at the lower end of the spectrum who really struggle to grasp a new language - ultimately I do have contact with all levels of learners, however.
I spend most of my time with six, seven and eight year olds - I have been given the added responsibity of teaching older year groups following the success I achieved teaching six year olds during my first month.
I create worksheets, games and lessons that allow the children to practice their language skills while allowing me to assess their proficiency. This enbles me to ensure that each child gets the level of interaction that is best suited to their needs.
It is also a hugely important part of my role to build good relationships with the teachers. This is in order to help them to improve their English and to ensure that any work I do complements their lessons and the overall curriculum.
I am developing good relationships with teachers from around the world through social activities, language exchange programmes and lesson planning.
