Teaching philosophy

Teaching a language means giving confidence, opportunities and the skills to learn the language. Later on, it leads them to communicate and find an appropriate job. My short-term teaching purpose is to teach vocabularies with their pronunciation and grammar so that the learners can learn to communicate effectively. On the other side, my long-term purposes are: to motivate my students to speak the language not only inside the class but outside the classroom as well, and to make them learn how to teach the language. In another word is to make them be to be English Language teachers.

My teaching style is rooted in Affective Humanistic Approach (1970). This approach appeals to me. I try lowering their Affective Filter by the Humanistic Approach which provides a positive reinforcement, respecting students feeling as they lean the language and spontaneous thoughts and interpretations. Mistakes in my classes are totally allowed. I totally believe that leaners learn from mistakes.
