Teaching Approach

I love communicative approach most of all because it helps my students not only to memorise English grammar but also to start speaking freely. I really enjoy teaching process and try to adjust to my students’ level and age. I create a good teaching environment and make explanations clear and simple enough for everyone. I use British coursebooks such as Skeakout, Headway, Total English, Kid's box, Choises, Oxford Practice Grammar.
