Here’s Anton teaching his class. He is famous for his positive and creative teaching styles. Here’s a little extract of his teaching philosophy:
“I have also found that students respond extremely well to humour and seem to appreciate it as well. Their sense of humour is congruent with my own!”
Anton finds that where students are allowed to express themselves with humour, it engages them more, by giving them an incentive to communicate stylishly.
“Social skills must be highly valued in their culture”, comments Anton.
He also finds that generally speaking the students are motivated by the chance to talk about topics of interest to them. They have confidence in their own ideas, and enjoy learning to express them.
He concludes “the most important priority for the language teacher is to establish a classroom environment in which everybody is welcome and feels accepted, and feels their contribution is of value. “
