Teaching ESL with Patience – English as a Second Language

Teaching ESL English as a second language – Have Patience !!

Teaching ESL English with Patience
What is one of the most important qualities of a good ESL English teacher ?
I think “patience” is one of ..or the most important qualities of a “good” ESL (English as a second language) teacher. We need to have the patience to wait for our students and give them time to think of the answers to questions or responses. They will be trying to process the english language into their own language and to translate and think of the correct response. This takes time at all levels and especially at ESL English basic levels. We also have to be conscious of how long to wait before helping them answer.

WE Need Patience to teach ESL English – English as a second language)
It’s definitely a balancing act and we have to know when to “jump in” and help them. If we wait to long the student will freeze mentally and lose confidence ..they will also become very frustrated. They key is to KNOW when to help and how long to wait for them to respond. A little tricky but definitely a necessary requirement for a good ESL English as a second language teacher. Patience .. how long do we wait ?

ESL Teaching – Having No patience –
I have taken Spanish classes so i know the feeling of trying to learn a new language. It’s difficult !! My Spanish teachers did not give me sufficient time to think of my responses so i was always telling them to “wait” .. this happened on a regular basis with each different teacher. Definitely Not a good quality in an ESL English as a second language ..or any other teacher.

I hope this explanation about being a good ESL Teacher helps. (English as a second language)

Airline Plane Crew Member – is mean to a child.

Aviation English – ESL English for Pilots

Flight Attendant forces child to urinate in her seat (Aviation English)

A grumpy airline flight attendant demonstrated her lack of parenting skills when she forced a child to urinate in her seat.
Jennifer Deveraux was travelling with her two daughters when the exceptional flight crew service occurred on a JetBlue flight. Flight 518 was delayed on the tarmac at John F. Kennedy International Airport in N.Y. on Monday, waiting to fly to Boston, CBS Boston reports.
One of Deveraux’s daughters, Summers, needed to use the bathroom, and began to cry. When her mother tried to help her to the bathroom, a flight attendant refused to let them stand up, forcing the child to urinate on herself and the seat.
Deveraux attempted to stand up again to clean up the mess, and the flight crew attendant yelled at her a second time. “And I said, ‘please give me a break. My daughter had an accident because you wouldn’t let me take her to the bathroom. After I clean it up I will sit down.’ She turned around and reported it to the pilot,” Deveraux said.
The aircraft pilot then turned the plane around and took it back to the gate, announcing over the intercom that there was a non-compliant passenger on board, and they would be brought to security.
Thankfully, an off-duty pilot sitting two seats in front of Deveraux realized how ridiculous the situation was and convinced the crew to let her stay. (airline flight crew member needs to chill)
