The question I was most interested as a fellow English teacher was to find out why these teachers liked teaching English. The following is just a sampling of their responses:
Zammagul: I like to communicate with other foreign people and get information from books, magazines and Internet. I like to teach English because I like to share my knowledge, my skills and my experience. A Chinese proverb: “If you look a year ahead, grow rice. If you look decades ahead, grow a garden, but if you look centuries ahead, bring up and educate children.”
Irina: I LOVE English because it’s very beautiful language. I like teaching English because through the teaching process I recognize something new about English, every time, every lesson.
Irina II: I love English for its melody and beauty.
Diana: It was my dream to know English. I started to love teaching English from fifth grade but I don’t know why. I want to say that traveling is my love and English helps me.
Aigerim: I like English because it helps me to explore so much!
Tanya: Oooh! I liked English when I was 12. I listened to American songs and I wanted to understand them, that’s why I started to learn it.
Lyudmila: English is an international language and I like it because it helps me to understand foreigners. It is very pleasant to me to see how my pupils begin to progress in studying because this is a part of my hard work.
Yana: I like the culture of its people and the language. I don’t naturally teach English, I’m an interpreter.
Margarita: English gives me the freedom of expression of my thoughts. I want everybody to feel the same freedom.
Akmaral: I like the way it sounds, I want almost everybody to know English.
Aigerim II: I like English because this language is exciting and beautiful language in the world and it is an international language that enables us to communicate with other people.
Eugeneya: Because it is the language which almost all countries know and I want more people to know this language.
Damira: I like to teach English as I like to teach the culture and a different way of life and I enjoy the process of making students become teachers.
Anna: I like the pronunciation of English words.
