1. Why did you choose to work at CIP?
– Even since I was a child, I had always dreamed of becoming a teacher due to its indispensable contribution in the field of education. So, when I received a lot of affirmative feedbacks from a friend about CIP, these intensified my interest to become a teacher of this school- undoubtedly, the company lives up with the expectations I had beforehand. Secondly, the diverse components that constitute the working environment of the school, create more interest and excitement, such as teaching students and working with fellow teachers from various cultures. And last but not the least, the company gives importance not only on progress of its students but also its teachers’ personal growth.
2. What do you do to improve your students’ English skill?
– I always believe that continuous assessment helps the students to progress their English ability. Through this, I can identify my students’ strengths and weaknesses in various areas of the language. This helps me create a suitable lesson plan pertaining to a particular target language.
3. What subject do you like teaching the most? Why?
– I enjoy teaching writing to my students. It cannot be denied that this subject is often regarded as the most difficult and boring to students. It is quite challenging for me, but fulfilling at the same time, especially when I help students overcome their perspective towards writing and instill the importance of the subject in improving their English ability.
4. What do you do to improve or maintain your good English skill?
– I have significant ways to improve or retain my good English skill: application, self-assessment, and study. Through application, it is difficult for me to dispense the language and at the same time I can personally check whether I am communicating effectively through the responses of the people around me and this will lead to studying to figure out the answers to various aspects of English I think I am lacking.
5. What advice could you give to students to improve their English skill fast?
– I highly recommend that learners of the English language study in a foreign country where English is primarily spoken or has international environment like CIP. In this way, it limits the frequency of students to communicate using their own language and acquire utmost exposure to the language. Furthermore, learning does not only settle with having inputs, so there must be an output. Application plays a substantial role to test and enhance the students’ ability to communicate effectively and acquire confidence in using the language.
