Although, going into college, I was always on the fence about whether or not I would like to go into teaching ESL or not, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher. My experiences throughout my life have guided me towards my goals. In my personal experience, I have always enjoyed teaching my family English. My family is from Taiwan and Malaysia. Although my first language was Mandarin, my English skills have become a lot more fluent than my Chinese.
There are a lot of people learning and using English as their foreign language in the world. They have different motivations for acquiring English because their objects of learning it differ from one another. Some need to study English to get a job and talk with relatives and others call for learning English as it is a required subject in school. Moreover, their motivations are affected by their first language, some of which are similar to English and do not require a lot of efforts for the speakers to acquire English. In my case, I was studying English because it was a required subject and related to my grade in school in the first six years.

If they hadn’t learn English they couldn’t have the jobs they have right now because English is a common language used to interact and communicate with people from different countries. I learned a new language and wasn’t bothered that the American kids began with an advance education because of their parents and relatives.
In my future teaching, I will follow his teaching techniques because he really taught me how to be a good English teacher. In conclusion, I have learned lots of things by distinguishing two English teachers because one of them was a good teacher and the other one unfortunately was not. I think, this gave me a better chance to reflect upon what I have learned at the university. After, I took part in this internship program, I felt myself capable of teaching English Language . I believed that this internship will open many doors leading to my future.
I will help my students to find other resources to support their learning process. For example, I can suggest students to search about an idea, fact, or any information from books or the internet. This will help them in enhancing their knowledge and will also prevent them from relying on the teacher support only. In addition to that, I will help them to read and write more and encourage them to practice English outside the classroom. I will also provide students the tools that will assist them in learning and will also build their interest of learning in the classroom and incorporate a variety of assessments that I gained from the assessment ... ... middle of paper ... ...ssible way.
English as a Second Language The field of work I have chosen requires allot of talking this is because I am going to be an ESL ( English as a Second Language) instructor. I believe that by me going into that field I will help give students a chance to expand their learning skills and help them get through the rest of their life with a good standing of themselves. Many schools are in great need of people in the field of this type of education. They are faced with a language challenge because most of the students who are from foreign countries do not speak English at all. There are many ways schools and teachers are helping students learn English.
I want students to be interested in other countries and communicate to foreigners with English. Now, I am proceeding toward a Bachelor of Education/ English Language Arts 5-12 at Concord College. While I do not have to have the United State’s teaching certificate to teach English in Japan, I wanted to experience a different culture. English is important to me because English is global language. I have been studying English since I was ten years old.
Some would say that America has gotten over the language/ cultural barriers and now almost everyone speaks the common language of English, but there are still many immigrants who do not know English. Bilingual education is put into public schools for this reason, so that immigrant children can be assimilated to English gradually. The national language should be English instead of the official language because America has prided herself in being very diverse. If we take away the diversity, then we take away the core values that America has always had since her founding. Just as the Native Americans had to learn English from the Pilgrims, immigrant children need bilingual education to help them learn English.
Other days she would make me write basic words to learn to pronounce and write them. It was a lot of work for me to learn the standard English everyone knows. When I was in elementary school, no one at home knew English, so I would have to stay after class to ask for help when trying to do my homework. My sister assisted the same school I did, and she too had to stay after class, when school was over. It was very hard for my sister and me at first, but we both overcame our
