In April, I started working at a boys' school as an English teacher, so I wasn't able to post my journals on Lang-8 as often as I did for the last couple of weeks. Sorry for not telling this thing to you beforehand. To tell you the truth, it was really hard to get accustomed to a new environment. After coming back home, I was very exhausted, so I usually went to bed around 9 or 10 pm, and woke up around 5 am in the morning to prepare something for classes each day.

On the first day, I did my self introduction in English and I asked two or three students to do the same at the beginning of each class in order to get to know each other. I think this is a very good practice for them to talk in front of other students, so I'd like to continue this presentation all around the year. Probably, next theme would be something like "How to spend their weekends" or "Their future dreams."

You may not believe, but almost all the students bow slightly whenever they see a teacher inside the building. They are very polite. Also, other teachers and stuff are kind and cooperative, so I'm comfortable being at school. Anyway, this year, I'd like to do my best to improve their English.

Thanks for reading my post. See you then!
