I have been teaching Mandarin in Brisbane around two years. Currently I am doing weekly online teaching class weekly. This year I just traveled back from Taiwan when finish national language training retreat. As an language teacher always keeping professional learning development to maintain in high quality teaching and building up global community to support modern learning resource is necessary. I have taught John Paul and St Lawrence college language this year before pandemic happened. Learning language is a stepping stone to see different world because we all need language communication. I love enjoying couching student to be confident when they spoke in foreign language. Impossible is possible.
Every language learning experience takes time. Keep consistency to maximise the exposure of target language is the key method.
It can be easier such as you could not swim but you took surfing lessons.
