My English teaching experience

My name is Clark and I'm from Toronto, Canada. I have been teaching English in Taiwan for 4 years. I have taught in a wide range of different situations, and have had fun every step of the way. To me, English is a puzzle, and I enjoy showing students how the pieces fit together.

Teaching English at Compass

Compass offers a truly unique learning environment. The small class sizes gives students more chances to participate, and also allows for more personal attention from teachers. Another unique feature of Compass is that we teach lifestyle English; we want our students to be able to apply their skills in real life situations. Other schools focus on taking tests, which isn't always the best way to learn English.

Learning tips to ESL learners

At the risk of sounding like a cliché, my best tip is to simply practice what you have learned. Take a look at your handouts and notes when you get home, and try to teach someone else one thing that you learned that day. You can kill two birds with one stone this way; cement your knowledge of English and impress your friend or loved one!

我是從加拿大多倫多來的Clark。在台灣已經有4年的教授英語經驗,教授的範圍也很廣泛,對我來說每件事都很有趣。我覺得英語像一個拼圖,我喜歡教學生如何去把它們湊在一起。

康培士提供了一個真正獨特的學習環境。小班教學為學生提供了更多的參與機會,同時也可以得到更多的關注。另一個獨特之處是我們以生活方式來教授英語,我們希望學員們可以把英語靈活運用在日常生活之中。有別於其他針對考試課程的學校,有時候那不一定是最好的學習方法。

給學員的學習建議:

雖然聽起來有點老套,但是我告訴你最好的學習技巧就是實踐你所學到的。到家的時候把你今天的講義拿出來嘗試去教別人。然後你會發現這是個一石二鳥的方法,可以鞏固你的英語又可以打動你的朋友。
