So today’s topic is about my Work Habits.

Which I would like to share with you in the following list:

- I’m a workaholic but in a “good” way, I know how much I can pressure myself with my school duties in order not to make me sick and visit the hospital, so I kind of learn how to manage the time and my tasks.

- I like to be the leader🙃 so, in other words I would probably tell my teammates what to do. Sometimes that gives the other people a vibe that I am arrogant or a really sick bossy person, but that is just my personality. It is worth mentioning that I express myself with all of the due respect to them.

On the other hand both of those habits are good and bad at the same time, because the mostly causr me a lot of unnecessary stress in my life so I really need to work on that!

Emerging from the dead because I need to vent. Listen, I know this whole thing of online school is tough, but I’m tired of seeing posts complaining about teachers all the time. I know some teachers are assholes, but some of us are actually trying. I teach English at a language school. I’ve taught good students, mediocre students, and bad students. the amount of times I’ve seen students disregard what I say, show a complete lack of respect, and act like they have 0 responsibility is ridiculous. Parents have no regard towards their kids’ education, and throw it all on the teachers. I’m not their mother or their babysitter. I do my best to help my students, but if you think you are the first entitled student to look at me like I’m dumb, guess again! I’ve seen it many times. I don’t earn nearly enough money to lose sleep because you don’t want to learn, that is your problem, and your money being wasted. I don’t give out excessive homework, I don’t tell at my students, I try to engage them in fun activities and help them feel confident enough to speak a new language. They don’t make any effort to show up to class(if they show up at all), they don’t do their homework and they leave their microphones muted and ignore me when I ask a question. I’m not a perfect teacher, but you guys sure as hell are not perfect students. So get off Instagram and go do your homework for once!

Do you know what’s the other meaning of “𝙃𝙞𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙗𝙤𝙤𝙠𝙨?”

HAHAHA! Yes! You are right! When we say, Let’s hit the books, it simply means, “ Let’s study!”

Now, let us take a look at the example here:
𝗜 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗵𝗶𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗯𝗼𝗼𝗸𝘀. 𝗜 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮 𝗵𝘂𝗴𝗲 𝗲𝘅𝗮𝗺 𝗻𝗲𝘅𝘁 𝘄𝗲𝗲𝗸!

Now, it’s your turn to make a sentence using “𝗛𝗶𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗯𝗼𝗼𝗸𝘀”!
Don’t forget to mention your friend in the comment section box!

One of the most commonly asked questions during interviews is, “Where do you see yourself in 3-5 years?”. For recruiters, this is to measure the applicant’s commitment, for the latter, it’s a matter of where he sees himself in the future.

Our data in the past few months show that a majority of people applying for ESL teaching positions see the job as a temporary source of income amid this global pandemic. Even before the quarantine period, most of the applicants don’t see themselves as online teachers in the long run. Why?

This line of work is deemed to be something that doesn’t get anyone anywhere. The way most people see it, you’re stuck with no career growth of any kind. This might be true with some ESL companies in the industry but not with Dazao English. Aside from its distinct teaching approach that makes the workload lighter, the company has a lot more to offer.

Upon passing, Dazao teachers are given a 6-month contract. During the evaluation, their performance will be assessed to determine if they are eligible for a possible transfer to the company’s sister brand. This gives teachers something to look forward to upon employment; career growth and an even higher pay rate. Dazao English also provides teachers with proper training that helps them grow both personally and professionally. Furthermore, the company assigns coaches who give professional help when necessary.

The main goal of Dazao English is to make education available to everyone; on the side, it aims to make online teaching a long-term career for anyone.

So what do you plan on doing next? Still unsure? Join Dazao English today and secure your future!

I made a note for myself and also for my students, next morning. I’m teaching a group of notaries to prepare for their English tests. They’re planning to take the doctoral degree as soon as possible.

I’m so inspired by their high motivation to understand and speak English better. One of interesting reasons comes from a young lady who wants to teach her future kids to speak English, besides her education target. It’s such a sweet and sincere, I’d say.

And I keep telling everyone who learns English with me… that learning languages always opens the door where we can get into the world of make believe.

Don’t you think so?

Say Hi!

Hello, my name is Miss Michelle and welcome to the result of my boredom in the midst of Covid-19 pandemic. 

Considering my background as a Literature student minored in Creative Writing, you’d think that I’d owned a website before this site was ‘banned’ in Indonesia. There had been a couple of trials to make one, for sure. However, as a highly confused college student, I decided to halt; knowing that I hadn’t found the right passion to vent out about. Which brings us here.

I’ve been working as a teacher for a pretty infamous English course for two years. For all that I could remember, I’ve been teaching and mentoring since I was very young; unprofessionally of course. I’ve always been meticulous at keeping notes so friends would come over and have study sessions at my house together during high school. I’ve volunteered at a certain organization back in college to teach public schools’ students and literally risked my life doing it (more about that later). It was for sure a challenging journey to work professionally as a teacher when you have very limited skills aside from the knowledge of the language itself. I can point out grammar error anytime but it takes more effort to enforce these precisions towards someone else. Many trainings and sharing among teachers have definitely make things easier as times goes by.

Anyhow, if there’s one thing that I’m confident in is that I’m a creative person. I’ve got some tricks I’ve picked up from my mom, friends, online and volunteer community when it comes to language activities. Over the past two years, I’ve gathered many fun and interactive learning activities and games that I’ve done with my students with great results and feedback. Starting from pre-kindergartens to adult learners’ classes, there will be various activities for you to try to implement in your lesson plan. I will post a regular language game or activity in this blog. Had it been of any help, please share and comment on how these activities could be modified and improved; I would love to hear many comments and inspirations to create a better and more effective learning environment.

The purpose of this blog is not to brag about my teaching skills, because two years are not essential enough and I’m still lacking in many aspects. This blog is dedicated to fellow teachers out there struggling to keep the students motivated during online classes, my co-workers who have been great inspirations throughout my professional career and for my lovely students who I missed dearly and have been making great efforts to study online. 

Here’s to hope things will get better soon. Stay tuned and cheers!

So as a first year English teacher during a pandemic, my heart reassures me but my body is tired. My love for my students is what keeps me going, but my hunger to help my students succeed can not be satisfied.

There’s so many obstacles in the way right now.

Distractions are behind those faces trying to learn and make their families proud.

However, there’s that glimmer of hope in my kids’ eyes.

Lighting up as they see dozens of faces at one time across their favorite devices: computers.

Before the pandemic, technology was a great engagement tool. Maybe there will be something great that comes out from all this.

My scholars are the future and all my bets are on them.

Part of me wants to be a teacher, but majority of me despises interacting with children. Now teenagers, maybe, but small children, no.

I would want my room Sherlock or Good Omens themed. Anyone who makes a really obscure refrence gets extra points on their assignment. If you read the original cannon for a project, extra points and a spot on my wall of nerds. If you watch the show and make refrences throughout the day, you’ll be my favorite student.

As for what I would teach? Elementary general classes or high school chorus, literature, or STEM (the pathway I’m on rn). No way in hell I’m teaching Middle school.

Anybody wanna add what they’d teach?

Speaking English more fluently and confidently means using day-to-day expressions that make the speaker sound more natural in conversation. The SPOKEN ENGLISH series of episodes is dedicated to making learners aware of the more frequent idioms, expressions and fixed phrases that will help us speak with ease, become more advanced and feel more relaxed when talking in English.
💡In this second video you’ll be learning about 5 fixed phrases used to express:
🎯 an excellent chance to do something important
🎯 that something makes you feel a bit more optimistic in a bad situation
🎯 that you don’t know or remember anything about a certain topic
🎯 that you will stop doing something
🎯 that you need to be less critical of someone

Each episode takes a look at 5 expressions. In order to make the learning experience more fun and engaging, we will learn the new language through a quiz every time. I recommend that you take notes after each quiz question so that you can compare the answers afterwards.

Another useful practice that will help you become more natural and fluent in speaking is pausing and repeating each expression. The sooner you hear yourself sounding more natural, the sooner you will be better able to use this language in conversation.

So here’s a fun and productive way to spend at least five minutes today!
