  • Hi guys! My name is Suzi and I'm a South African living in Poland!

  • And I've been Teaching English as a Second Language for the past

  • 8 years.

  • And I've had a few people

  • come up to me and ask me, uh, like how do you teach?

  • Or would you have any tips for other people

  • who are interested in teaching children English.

  • For example. I have this

  • wonderful friend who speaks

  • English perfectly, she speaks French perfectly.

  • She's not a teacher, she studied something totally different

  • but a few people have asked her if she

  • would maybe like to teach their kids.

  • And she kind of panicked and called me

  • and she asked, "What am I supposed to do?"

  • "I've never taught kids, I don't hang around with kids."

  • How do you teach someone who's

  • not your age, who you think of as some small little alien?

  • So I'm gonna give you three

  • tips

  • that could help you feel a little bit more

  • confident on your first meeting or

  • lesson with a small human being who would like

  • to learn English, or who's parents would like this

  • human being to learn English.

  • So my first step is

  • tada!

  • to sit on the floor

  • So meeting an adult, just imagine, you're meeting this person

  • who's like, so much taller than you and if you

  • look at them and you have to kind of be

  • in this position in order to see their face

  • thats kind of um, kind of scary and intimidating

  • and on top of this, this person is speaking to

  • you, using these words that you have

  • no idea what they mean. But when you sit on the floor

  • you kind of make yourself a little bit more

  • vulnerable, but you're also on the level of

  • this child, which makes them feel a

  • little more comfortable and it makes you

  • more approachable.

  • Next tip:

  • Be interested!

  • Being interested means reacting to what

  • they're saying or to things that

  • they're doing with interest

  • so for example, asking about a teddy

  • and asking if it's theirs and showing interest in their Teddy.

  • Showing interest in um, them making handstands

  • and congratulating them on that

  • showing interest in, for example

  • pictures on their wall and asking, you know

  • "Did you draw this? Is this yours? Wow this is really good!"

  • So just being interested in them and their

  • environment and showing that you want to

  • be there, with this kid, already kind of

  • opens up this wave of friendship.

  • Third thing is...

  • "You know English!"

  • Which I think is pretty important

  • as a confidence builder.

  • Because learning a language

  • isn't actually that difficult. I think a lot

  • of people blocking themselves and they

  • think that no this is impossible I can't

  • do it, I don't know, I don't understand what you're

  • saying so I'm gonna listen to you and I

  • think it's important to find certain things

  • that the child understands and knows and

  • congratulating them on it. Or I do this thing where I kind of

  • trick them into knowing the language.

  • I start with a drawing. Drawing in itself is a very

  • very cool way to interact with the

  • child and teach English at the same

  • time. So for example, I would say, OK so.

  • "I am drawing

  • a head

  • And now I'm drawing

  • two eyes,

  • a nose and a mouth."

  • "Where are his eyes? Where can you see his eyes?" *Blink Blink*

  • And the child usually points and I'm like

  • "Well done! Yes! That's his eyes!"

  • And then, kinda like, you know

  • "You see? You know English!"

  • So yeah, those were three of the tips that I think

  • could be important as a start.

  • If you have any tips on what made your

  • first lessons work or what helped you when

  • you started teaching kids, let me know

  • or if there's some other tips that

  • you would like, you're welcome to let me know too!

  • and maybe I can help out.

  • Hey guys. So that was my first ever

  • YouTube video and I just wanted to say thanks for watching!

  • And I wish you an amazing

  • 2017!

  • Bye!
