I thought that I would start a blog, as I have so many things that I would like to say about teaching English in Spain. What a beautiful country this is!
Is teaching a challenge? Of course it is.
Is learning a challenge? Yes, of course!
However, what is life without challenges? What would life be like without a problem to solve? (resolver). Boring, mundane, pointless, monotonous, uninteresting (all good adjectives!). We all need a challenge, we all need to - s t r e a c h - ourselves, if we want to achieve our dreams. We need to be committed to our passions and our needs.
As intelligent people we all need to be challenged. To grow and flourish!
If you want to learn the English language, you will hopefully return to my blog as I will be uploading many worksheets / tips / ideas, that I have designed myself after 15 years of experience in teaching the beautiful language of ENGLISH!
'Check out' (phrasal verb - investigar) my blog for very regular updates.
Until we meet again.
