First day in school


This has been my first day in school. The teachers are helpful, the kids are nice, I have a desk in the teacher’s room, all is fine. I got my timetable. I will teach around 800 students in classes of 40-45. They are between 12 and 17 years of age.

I had my first classes too. I started with a long introduction and asked the students questions to find out about their level of English. They are mostly at beginner (A1) and elementary (A2) levels, with some really exceptional intermediate (B1) students.

We were told we had to focus on speaking and listening skills. Great! Let’s get into it!
