My role here is two-fold. My first role is teaching English, primarily English language acquisition but some literature as well. Keeping students engaged is paramount so I try to make learning as interesting and fun as possible. My second role here is to prepare students for university in the West. The cultures are significantly different and it's important that they understand as much as possible about the differences in order to minimize the transition and increase their chance of success.
