Because of the differences between Chinese and Western cultures, Chinese
teachers tend to think in a Chinese way, so many parents choose to invite
foreign teachers, so what are the advantages of English teachers?
1. Relaxed and free classroom atmosphere, harmonious relationship between
teachers and students
Because foreign teachers have been influenced by their own values and
culture for a long time, they advocate a concept of freedom, equality and
democracy. In their eyes, middle school students and teachers are completely
equal. In the process of classroom teaching, students and teachers have the same
status. Teachers are the organizers, helpers and coordinators of classroom
teaching, while students are the center of the classroom. In the process of
teaching, students have the right to fully participate. Generally speaking,
foreign teachers are relaxed and humorous in the classroom. For the content that
students can't or don't understand, teachers will teach patiently without
neglecting to pursue progress. Students' psychological pressure is very small in
foreign teachers' classroom.
2. Diversified teaching methods, student-centered
The classroom teaching methods of foreign teachers are various, generally
novel and interesting, and their essence is student-centered. This teaching
method can greatly enhance students' interest in learning. Foreign teachers are
good at using pictures, videos, recordings, film and television works and even
games to carry out classroom teaching, making the classroom content more vivid
and easier for students to understand and accept.
At the same time, foreign teachers pay special attention to avoid students'
rote memorization of knowledge in the teaching process, and make students absorb
knowledge on the basis of understanding as much as possible. Some foreign
teachers ask students to arrange English short plays independently, so that
students can learn English in the process of performing the purpose of English
plays; some foreign teachers ask students to train students' English oral
expression ability by speaking in English and recording videos, and then
broadcast them in the classroom, so that students are both actors and audiences,
and really improve students' English application ability. They believe that
foreign language learning can only work well in practice.
3. Advantages of local language and culture
The first language of foreign teachers is generally English, so in the
application of language and cultural understanding, foreign teachers are
basically better than domestic teachers. Especially in the teaching of cultural
knowledge, due to the limitations of the general environment, the domestic
teachers have great deficiencies in the teaching of cultural knowledge, while
the foreign teachers are bound to involve in cultural indoctrination in the
teaching process, which is not only conducive to students' language learning,
but also more importantly, to broaden their horizons and deepen their macro
understanding of the English speaking countries.
