An Introduction, Part III
Today I had a class with four students and some people didn’t know some people, so I asked them to introduce themselves. Even though my students introduce themselves a couple of times in my lessons (I ask them to do so when a student from another class joins their class for a substitute lesson), they still seem unsure doing it. They also usually stop after their name and their age, and I have to ask them to keep going and say more.
It happened again today and I realized that it’s not easy for my students to introduce themselves, but they do it anyway when I ask and they say more anyway when I ask.
It made me realize that I should also introduce myself using my own words even though I don’t think I have anything to say, so the last part of this Introduction series is an introduction by me. 😀
I am Carmelia.
I am young at heart so my age doesn’t matter. 😂😂😂
Many of my students might say I’m noisy, but I’m actually not. I just think that noisiness and cheerfulness are part of my job as a conversation teacher. 😆
I am actually very, very introverted. I do not talk to people I do not know. I don’t even look at people when I’m walking on the street. 😂 So if you see me on the street and I ignore you, please do not think I hate you.
I am simply being very introverted. 😂😂😂
I like English and I think one of the reasons why I am teaching it is because I think English is a good language to use to express yourself.
As an introvert, I find it hard to express myself when speaking. But when I’m writing I can play with words and color them to say what I want to say in the way that I want to say it.
I can do that with English and I want my students to one day be able to use the language to express themselves however they want to, too.
