My very first Cafetalk lesson took place on Christmas Day last year, and I was quite nervous and excited at the same time. I thought it was a lovely Christmas present. Since then I have earned a ring of flowers around my profile photo for completing 300 lessons and was chosen for a Rookie award.
I have learned a great deal about online teaching and met so many interesting and varied students. Everyone is extremely motivated and eager to improve their English. Some of my lessons focus on a particular activity, but my Open Conversation Lesson and my English a la Carte usually include all kinds of activities, like reading or listening, vocabulary or pronunciation, news stories or discussions. I enjoy the variety and hopefully the students do as well.
I look forward to seeing everyone again next year, and meeting many more of you out there.
