's preferred teaching style:
I believe in learning through a variety of methods and activities. It is important to keep students engaged and interested in their learning so that they can be successful. Besides incorporating a little humor into the learning process, I believe in the importance of grammar, culture, repetition (in a form that is not monotonous), writing, speaking and reading. Everything done in my class should be in context and relevant.
