About the lesson

(1) Limits.
There will always be a new word to learn, but many students don't know that there is a limit to the quantity of information a teacher needs to teach a student. We know from academic research that a knowledge of 3,000 words equals about 90% of a conversation in English. A teacher should teach a limited quantity of grammar within this 3,000 word limit. After this 3,000 word limit, it's only a matter of adding new words. That makes sense!

(2) Important.
When I teach you something, it's supported by academic research, not commercial language learning methods.

(3) The Lessons.
You need to watch a movie or an episode of a series, write notes, and then explain the notes to me in English in the lesson. As you speak, I'll correct your mistakes: pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, etc. Preparing for the lessons only takes about one hour. You need to explore the mistakes after the lesson. I will teach you how to explore your mistakes.

(4) Reading and Listening.
Students read books which are very difficult. Then they simply stop reading. We know from academic research that a knowledge of 3,000 words equals about 90% of a conversation in English. The highest level graded reader (a kind of book written in simple English) has a maximum of 3,000 words, so reading graded readers makes a lot of sense.

(5) Fluency
Fluency means speed. I can teach you techniques to help you improve your fluency.

(6) The Fees
You can pay fees by means of bank transfer once a month. I live in Ireland, so fees are paid in Euros.

(7) Additional Information
I teach conversational English to adult students. I don't teach traditional lessons, and I don't use traditional textbooks or methods. I don't teach business English or exam English. Your lessons will be private and online, and you will study at the same time and on the same day each week.

About Noel

I don't use a method. Languages are learned by means of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. I have about 14 years experience teaching English. I think a lot about how I teach. The result is that my students do most of the work in a lesson. The more I teach you, the less you need me, but that depends on how much time you have to study, and how open you are about using new skills and techniques.

    Você fala fluentemente esta língua por causa de suas origens ou porque um professor te motivou a aprendê-la?

    I'm a native English speaker. I've always been interested in English. I began to read English from a young age, and I have continued reading about a wide variety of subjects ever since. My reading has greatly contributed to my ability to teach English. A good teacher is a good reader! There is also a large quantity of academic research supporting the importance of reading as a means of increasing knowledge of vocabulary and deepening knowledge of known vocabulary. If you want to speak English well, don't underestimate the importance of reading.

  • 02

    Cite uma pessoa (da atualidade, histórica ou fictícia) que, na sua opinião, representa bem a cultura da língua que você ensina.

    The greatest influence on my English is Professor Steven Pinker. His command of English is extraordinary. He gets to the point immediately. When you read his books, you certainly need to pay attention. His English is clear and vivid. He supports what he says with vast quantities of research. When I read his books, I need to reach for a dictionary many times. That's good for my English, and it's therefore good for my students.

  • 03

    Existe alguma palavra, expressão ou tradição típica que você goste particularmente?

    I particularly like the following words: languages are learned more than they are taught. The commercial market is full of products promising fluency in record periods of time. Languages have never been learned in record periods of time. However, it's possible to learn a language more efficiently. Therefore, I teach my students a lot of skills. The idea is that the more I teach you, the less you need me, but that depends on whether or not a student is willing to learn a broad range of skills and become a more independent learner.

  • 04

    Por qual motivo aprender esta língua é importante (seja no âmbito escolar, profissional ou pessoal)?

    Why a student learns English depends on the needs of the student. Some students need English to advance their careers. Other students need English because they would like to travel a lot. In my opinion, people should learn languages so that they can see the world from a perspective which is utterly different from their own. Seeing the world from the perspective of others is a fundamental life skill.

  • 05

    Qual a maior dificuldade no aprendizado desta língua e o como contornar este obstáculo?

    For some students, they simply don't know where to begin when learning English. Should they read more or listen more? Which is more important: grammar or vocabulary? There are many more questions. Therefore, I structure my students learning by recommending the following daily routine: read English every day, listen to English every day, revise new words every day, learn at least one phrasal verb every day, and try to resolve at least one problem every day. I also recommend a weekly (weekend) routine of preparing for lessons, and exploring mistakes made in previous lesson. If you want to learn a language, you need to know what to do, how to do it, and how often to do it. That's what I teach my students. I teach them language learning skills. Teaching is also a means of taking bad ideas out of a student's head, putting good ideas into a student's head, and that means trying to change how a student thinks, which is a very difficult thing to do, but if a teacher can do it, teaching can be one of the most fulfilling jobs in the world.

  • 06

    Você poderia compartilhar alguma história e/ou curiosidade engraçada relacionada à sua profissão ou as aulas particulares?

    The extraordinary variety of personalities is certainly the most interesting, stimulating, and rewarding aspect of my job. Each new student is a completely new challenge. Starting to teach a new student is like starting a new job. It's impossible to get bored. The sheer variety of personalities and temperaments is endless. Teaching such a huge variety of different people is the ultimate enjoyable challenge.

  • 07

    Nos ajude a te conhecer melhor, nos conte um pouco sobre suas viagens, amizades nativas no idioma que você você leciona entre outros! 😄

    Making friends in the language you are learning is the most important thing, and for one simple reason: people are the most interesting texts. Movies and series are interesting, but they don't match the complexity and diversity of people.

    O que faz de você um Superprof (além do poder de se comunicar em várias línguas 😉) ?

    What makes me a Superprof is that I give my students responsibilities and they learn more effectively as a result. I don't prepare for my lessons; my students prepare for their lessons. What I do before and after the lessons is more important than what I do in a lesson. What I know from experience is more important than what I do in a lesson. Only with experience can a teacher know that the student should do most of the work in a lesson. I put my students under a little pressure and that also helps them learn more effectively. Most importantly, my students tell me that for the first time in their lives they actually know that they are improving.
