Not only will it be greatly appreciated, but a donation at this level will earn you one English question answered, per month, that I will turn into an *Aside Post on GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!.


*An "Aside Post" is similar to a facebook Status Update.  So this will be a short post, but the question will certainly be fully answered.

About

Greetings,


My name is Claude, but on GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!, I simply go by the title:  "The Teacher".

This is because - first of all - when I'm teaching, I don't want the focus to be on me, but on the material being taught.  But also because I have had a great many students who - instead of calling me by my name - would simply call me, "Teacher"...  I liked that better.

Anyway...

I have been teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) since 2009, and one thing I can say for certain, is that - the "traditional" systems of teaching English as a foreign language - along with all of the text-books and the methods employed by the administrators of the various language schools (both traditional and on-line) are definitely not set up for highly-intelligent people.  They are set up for "average" intelligence, which is not much higher than a high-school level of intellect.

These systems and methods may be sufficient for the general masses of people needing and English education - but most of my students have been professionals in various industries who have a high level of intelligence...

The Text-Books And Teaching Methods Are Not Created For Them

I started GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! as a way to provide (as the slogan on my website says) "Authentic English For The REAL World"

What that means is:

Not only teaching English at the level of intelligence of those who are my students - but also - Teaching English that is Authentic to the way Native Speakers actually use English.

  • No in-authentic Vocabulary & Phrases which (though they may exist) no one actually uses...

  • No teaching of Common Expressions which are examples of poor English skills (a big problem in the English teaching industry)...

  • And NO refraining of explaining certain things, just because they may seem difficult (something which is a BIG problem with other teachers in the industry)

As my slogan says, I give you "Authentic English For The REAL World" - and I give it to you at the level of YOUR intelligence, (not that of the people writing the text-books)...

;)

P.S.  I also do not accept ANY limitations due to the feelings of others, i.e....

NO POLITICAL CORRECTNESS!!!
