Meeting and interacting with a person from a foreign country.
Pros: visit to the college
Cons: not enough time during class time to spend with student.
A typical day at work is setting up class. Have the student recite given material. Having student repeat vocabulary. Introducing student to our college. Teaching English rules in punctuation, grammar, and vocabulary.
I have learned that teaching English to a foreign student takes a lot more work. I have learned a little about her language and her country. – more... I learned that the student loves our province and enjoys living here.
Management was always available and answered all questions I had. They were easy to reach by phone or email.
Co-workers were ready and willing to give any help needed and was very informative.
The hardest part of the job was trying to understand what the student was trying to communicate.
the most enjoyable part of the job was breaking through our language barriers and understanding each other. The student understanding the rules of English and putting them into practice. – less
