Who am I?
Don’t worry I am not having an existential crisis,
My name is Chris Wilson and I am a Teacher of English as a Foreign Language. I am currently teaching in Krakow, Poland. I used to teach at Badajoz English in the City of Badajoz in Extramadura, Spain. Before that I was a teacher at International House Dnipropetrovsk for two years.
During my time as a teacher I’ve taught all sorts! From Serious Business men, to not so serious housewives, from elderly retirees to new school pupils From motivated and eager polylingusits to unmotivated teenagers (who barely speak in the first language let alone English!) And I love it!
What is this Blog about?
This is my blog to contain my reflections on teaching, exciting things I learn, good (and BAD) lesson reports, material and generally my journey as a teacher. Above all I want it to encourage you as a teacher and to make you enjoy teaching more. If this happens then it will all have been a success.
Want some ideas of where to start?
