I think that to work with children in a real context is a quite different experience
than to work with adults. Definitely, children require more attention, motivation, and
control, but it is a funny and worthy situation in which we as teachers should face real
educational contexts. I realized that children take more risks than adults, so it is an
important tool for them so as to take advantage of it for learning English in an easy way.
Also, I noticed that in public schools English class is not a basic subject for children, thus
their English level is so poor and although it is not the appropriate one, they showed
interest for learning. Before doing the class I was afraid about my capacity and ability to
manage children but I found that it was not a nightmare, it just requires patience.
