Why is it important to learn a foreign language?
Learning a foreign language can open so many doors and opportunities. Not only will you be able to communicate with others, but you will learn about different cultures that are not like your own. It is a great thing to be culturally competent and globally aware. By learning a foreign language you can achieve those two things.
Subject: English as a Second Language
How do we make students who are learning English as a second language comfortable?
It is important to reinforce making mistakes and taking risks when a student is learning English as a second language. It can be intimidating speaking a language you don't fully understand, but constantly encouraging the student and praising him/her for achievements and success is very important. Educators must encourage students to make mistakes because it is all part of the learning process.
What is the role of a teacher in school?
Teachers have many roles during the school year. Not only are they expected to be a master in their subject area, but they are also expected to be respectful, approachable, and kind. A teacher's duty is not just to fill students' brains with information and see how well they do on a test. A teacher's responsibility is to engage students, facilitate communication among peers, and show students the "how" and the "why." A teacher should also be a role model, or someone a student can go to for support with any concerns.
