As a language teacher my priority is to make my students feel comfortable from the moment we meet to be able to establish a good teaching-learning environment. My lessons are based on my students' interests and needs. I prepare lessons that are fun, enjoyable, interesting and with a variety of activities that help the students to learn, revise and improve their language skills.

I based my lessons on the communicative approach where there is more emphasis on skills than systems, my lessons are more learner-centered, and there is always use of authentic materials.
