What a Cliche: “There’s No Place Like Home”
As many people said, home is where they live, but for others, it is where they feel the most wanted, appreciated or involved. Therefore, everyone’s description of home could be different. It could be a specific place where you find comfort, joy, love, support and a sense of consistency or simply refer to “home life”. How about you? Where is your home? Nevertheless, no matter what, people will still continue to use this phrase out of context, so I guess what I’m trying to say is that we should always think before we speak because we don’t always know the implications of what we’re saying. Some things may seem as simple as black and white, but have roots deeper than what you can see from the surface.
Look at the view in the photo above, Yes! That’s Taal Lake View where you can see from Tagaytay City, my hometown (near Face to Face School). And that girl who’s looking at the view is my daughter. She loves sight-seeing like me.
Finding Face to Face School was a blessing in disguise. I’m so grateful to my beloved friend who introduced me about Face to Face School. For me, this school is my second home not just because it’s where my hometown is but it’s where I feel loved and appreciated the most, like “family life”.
By the way, this is teacher Nelly. I took up Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I’ve been teaching English to Asian students for more than 10 years now. Teaching is something that I enjoy and love to do. It gives me wonderful chance to share my knowledge and learn from other people’s experience. Learning a certain language like English is about bridging gaps and breaking barriers.
Currently, I’m one of Face to Face’s speaking teachers. Mostly, I handle situation and vocabulary classes.
To be more specific, using dialogues to help students develop their conversation skills is common practice in most English classes. Once they have become comfortable using a dialogue, students can then go on to have related conversations building on their familiarity with the dialogue and the vocabulary particular to the situation. (situations like, Introduction, At the Hotel, Asking for Directions, At the Restaurant, etc…) Students may use them as role plays to introduce new tenses, structures and language functions. Once students become familiar with a form through the use of a dialogue, they can use this as a model to practice, write and expand on their own. Apart from focusing on the dialogues, students may also learn how to interact with others and use vocabulary words properly.
We, Face to Face teachers, are here to help you enhance your confidence.
So, let’s start the ICE BREAKER!
At Face to face, students and teachers are not just going to learn but at the same time they gonna have fun-filled moments during the class. See you soon! Thank you and Be inspired! 🙂
