Since I started teaching, an
increased knowledge and a better understanding of ELT approaches and methodology
through doing Cambridge CELTA& DELTA module 2. I have made me more willing
to ‘let go’ in the classroom. Methods of teaching English have developed
rapidly, especially in the previous 40 years. As a language teacher or teacher
trainer, it is important to understand the various methods and techniques in
teaching English. From my experience, there is not one single best method

inherently superior to the others.


Each teaching method is based
on a particular vision of understanding the language or the learning process. The
main methodologies for ELT teaching are listed below:

Grammar Translation –
the classical method

Direct Method –
discovering the importance of speaking

Audio-lingualism – the
first modern methodology

Communicative Language
Teaching – the modern standard method

Principled Eclecticism –
fitting the method to the learner, not the learner to the method

I want my students to be central to the lesson,
and prefer to see materials and techniques as aids to their learning rather
than key to my planning. My lessons have reflected my belief that students are
more motivated when involved in real communication activities linked to a
context which genuinely interests them and over which they have some control.
Hopefully, this leads to better L2 acquisition.


As an experienced English teacher, I see it as
my role to be:


full of good teaching ideas
and lesons to share with my colleagues.

an engaging skilled teacher,
trainer and facilitator

confident in your subject

up-to-date with relevant
theories of teaching and learning

experienced in teaching
Cambridge programmes and qualifications

always committed to
developing my teaching practice

able to connect and
networking with people from different cultural backgrounds well
organised and capable of meeting deadlines.
