Let’s meet the teachers – Lisa

My name is Lisa, I’m from Chengdu, Sichuan Province. I’ve been teaching on the EF platform for four years.

Being an online teacher is amazing! We can teach anywhere and anytime. Meanwhile, we can meet different people from different places and share a lot of interesting things in this virtual space. I really like teaching adult students, most of them are rich in work and life experience. As the proverb says “One day with a great teacher is better than a thousand days of diligent study”. I think teaching and studying are two-way communication, we can learn from the students as well.

How to make the students speak loudly and confidently in class is important. It is better to check the student’s class lists and get to know the student’s level and the last topic. During the class, we can gradually pop up some topics related to the student’s last class, which can help them to review and reduce their nervous feelings. Meanwhile, you could try to speak a little bit slower or to speak more clearly with appropriate grading language. Don’t forget to encourage them more!

In my free time, I enjoy going hiking with my family! Chengdu is really a good place, located in the west of Sichuan Province. There is a saying that the beauty of Sichuan is in the west. How lucky I am! It takes us two hours to drive to get there. You can walk in the forests, hike in the mountains, run in the meadows, and wander around the alpine lakes. The Seasons here are different throughout the year. The best hiking season is in autumn, I absolutely believe that the beautiful scenery will take your breath away!
