Teaching

From Teflpedia

Teaching is the activity that English teachers are engaged in.

Some would argue that teaching students the English language is next to impossible and that the objective should be to help students learn.

"Somewhere between apathy and wild excitement, there is an optimum level of aroused attention that is ideal for classroom activity."[1]

It is also a mistake to think that teachers "teach English", when in reality they teach students English. Usually the ability to teach students is more important than the ability to teach English.
