Teaching English is scary, even when you can speak English and the students can’t.
Today was my first attempt at teaching, having been given about six hours of training. I pretty much sucked at it, but that’s ok because they expect you to be rubbish. The problem is, tomorrow they expect me to be good. I spoke too much and rushed things along a little bit, but at least I’ve taught a complete lesson, and I know I can do it. I’m kinda sorry I was always pissing about in school because teaching four willing adults must be a breeze compared to 30+ unwilling teenagers, and it was still one of the scariest things I’ve ever done.
