A reluctance to question the teacher

Postbox letter from Sophie

I've found one of the most challenging aspects of being a new teacher in Thailand is the students' reluctance to ask questions in class.


On entering the classroom

On your first day as a teacher, winging it is not an option.

The best way to be confident is to be prepared. Have a broad idea of how your first few lessons are going to go. If you can get hold of a lesson plan or course book beforehand, then wonderful. If not, at least have a ‘getting to know you’ type of lesson up your sleeve.
