QW 030912 “100+40+50=190”

100+40+50=190 people. It’s the biggest number of people that I’ve taught for two days. I had absolutely NO idea to teach 100 students at one time. I tried not to think about how big the audience was going to be. I tried hard to focus on giving my best possible class for those people who would come all the way to the seminar. Once the first class with 100 people started, it just came to me that I would have a very good class for the day. It didn’t take too long for me to concentrate on teaching and sense the climate of the class. The second class on the first day with 40 people was fun and intimate. I soon recognized that some of the participants came to my previous February 14th seminar, which helped assure me that I could have another good class. They were so responsive and seemed to enjoy “participating” in the class. My teaching is never a lecture-style, but an interactive style which includes lots of pair or group discussions based on individual thoughts and ideas even if it’s a TOEIC test-taking skills class on a ground that we’re learning a language, a tool created to interact with people, right? Fortunately, my teaching style seemed to work quite well for the second class. The third class with 50 people was a little quiet for the first 15 minutes. My initial thought was “Oh, is it going to be like that for the rest of the hours?”. As they repeatedly read the key sentences aloud, worked on pronunciation, discussed right answers with their neighbors, they began to relax and open themselves to me. They kept practicing what they were just taught, just like kids never get bored of doing the same thing. After the class was finished, a staff member who supported my seminar gave me feedback that the class that I taught had was very interactive and the participants seemed to “participate” in the class to a large degree. I’m full aware that there are millions of different ways to give a good class. Still, her comment made me happy. What I’d always like to emphasize for my class is students’ interaction and participation because we’re learning a language called English.
