Teaching English to adults

As you walk through an adult education center, the first thing you will notice is that the environment is calm yet welcoming. Your students are there to study and practice their English. They are there because they want to secure a promotion, travel abroad, or get into a good college. This internal motivation makes them a joy to teach. Yet, despite the calmness outside of the classroom, they still like to have fun and make a little bit of noise.

As an adult’s English teacher, you will get the opportunity to help your students change their lives. You can help them grow personally as well as professionally. In time, you may even build lasting friendships with your students. This will give you the opportunity to get an insight into Indonesian life and culture, and even share your culture with them.
