To learn a language is to have one more window to look at the world.

Methodology

Many children learn several languages at a very young age. Language teaching involves many methods. There is no one single method strongly recommended in the teaching of English since the level of the learners differ from one another. So, it becomes inevitable for a teacher to know the different methods of teaching and learning. Awareness of variety of methods help him to apply the relevant method in his classroom effectively and successfully. The different methods are : Grammar Translation, Direct Method, Audio-Lingualism, Humanistic Approach, Communicative Language Teaching and Principled Eclecticism.

Experience

I have been in the teaching field since the past 20 years including 8 years as Principal of ICSE schools. I have been an English instructor for middle and secondary grades. I have also been a soft skills trainer for my immediate staff on various occasions.Many children learn many languages at a very young age
