Be your students' friend rather more a techer
As an parttime and fulltime English teacher for a couple of years, I found that the class could be much easier and more effective if you can really treat your students as your friends rather than students, that is, to make yourself their friend rather than the teacher. It fits both in and out of classroom. You may share different ideas with them which don't have to do with the teaching contents. They will absolutely respect you more and more and get to lear much as well if you have dinner or go outing with them after class. This is one of the antitraditional teaching methods in which actually teachers were too powerful and serious before their students.
