*Teaching English as a Foreign Language- My first mini class*
The experience was extremely beneficial for my knowledge and further preparation. I learned that my students are absolute beginners. I thought they knew the basic greetings, but I was wrong. They were familiar with many words and I was able to teach them the proper use of good and well. We also went through the verbs to have and to be. I gave plenty of examples and explained the positive, negative, and question form of the verbs. My mind was a little scattered since it was my first class and I could've provided more exercises. Next time, we will review and move forward. The women are extremely intelligent, but had trouble speaking in only language. I have to teach them to break their habits. The little girl I teach was excellent! She was able to distinguish different sounds, put them together, and spell them out by sole pronunciation. It is awesome and I'm loving it!
My name is Vittoria Anania. I am 28 years old and have intense need to convey myself through writing both physically and emotionally. I graduated from Nova Southeastern University in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications Mass Media. I was minoring in writing and had one more credit to finish it up, but the class was canceled my last semester. It was an intense disappointment, but I haven't allowed it to affect my life or my goals in any way. Therefore, I have chosen to blog and who knows, maybe I will be recognized! I am a certified TEFL teacher. I am a wife and proud mommy to a gorgeous baby girl, Giulietta and baby boy, Giovanni. That doesn't mean I gave up on my dreams, they're just beginning!
