I love teaching because it allows me to clown around in class. For example, when a student make a mistake, I will smack my forehead several times with my palm, drop my mouth and then add some sound effects just like in a cartoon so the student will not be embarrassed at all while he tries to get the answer right. Children love that and it helps to liven up the class too. Sometimes, I will dramatise - shaking my buttocks or strutting around like a king .. anything just to make them laugh. It's good way to begin a lesson when there is humour thrown in right from the start. Learning a langauge through the funny use of the body will thrill anyone.
