Spring Eyes tell, tell me, what you tell me, telling something all too sweet, making music out of beauty, with a question hidden deep. Still I think I know your meaning, there behind your pupils’ brightness, love and truth are your heart’s lightness, that, instead of its own gleaming, would so truly like to greet, in a world of dullness, blindness, one true look of human kindness, where two kindred spirits meet. by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

SPRING Spring is certainly the best season of the year. It lays between the winter and the summer season. It is neither hot nor cold. The spring is also called the “Queen of seasons”. In this season, everybody feels happy after the intense cold of winter, all take interest in outdoor life. In spring, Nature is as beautiful & charming as a bride. Though it lives for a short duration, it bewitches people in such a way that they sing songs in its praise throughout the year. I would like to conclude by saying that I hope all of you might be able to get the chance to live literally the spring season with all its passion. “With lots of respect”, Muna AHMED

6 REASONS Why You Are NOT a Fluent English Speaker: Confessions of an ENGLISH TEACHER I have been an English teacher for around 7 years now and I have to say that I really love teaching. As a teacher, the objective of my job is quite simple: to teach people English. I do this through a mixture of hundreds of different methodologies and techniques and through all of these I try to find the quickest, most effective and most enjoyable way to teach each individual student, and for him or her to learn. I have taught group classes, individual classes, business English, test preparation, you name it and I have probably had some experience teaching it. But, throughout these years of teaching so many different kinds of people, investing all my time and energy into tailoring our classes to their personal needs, I have noticed common trends among more than 80 percent of these people that are STOPPING them from actually becoming fluent in English. Are you one of these people? Or are you another frustrated teacher that can’t understand why your students aren’t really learning the way that they should? Today I am going to go through 5 reasons why you are not really learning English at all. 1. You Don’t Want It Enough Most people don’t REALLY WANT to learn English, they only KIND OF WANT to learn. Really think about it for a second, on a scale of 1 to 10 (ten being the most excited about learning) how much do you really want to learn English? Many people come to me asking for English classes saying that they really, really, really want to learn and that they would do anything for me to start teaching them. Sure, for the first week, sometimes even the first month, they attend every class, do the activities I ask them to do in their spare time, and sometimes they even come to the RealLife English party which we host every month to give English learners a social atmosphere where they can practice their English. Find one near you. But soon enough that excitement to learn, all of their desire to master the language just suddenly disappears and they decide that the money they invest on English classes would be better off spent on candy crush credits and other useless stuff like that. English or any other language cannot be learned in just one class; it actually takes some time and focus. If you feel like learning a language isn’t something that you want to invest at least 3 or 4 hours a week on, then maybe you should stick to the candy crush. 2. It’s a Resentful Work Obligation Ok, so maybe I was a little harsh on the first point, I understand that for some people learning English is more of a work necessity than a cool hobby. If you are being obliged to learn English because it is necessary for your job, then I wish you the best of luck. I know that the corporate world is very cutthroat [relentless] and if you don’t speak English as well as the other person in the interview then you’re probably not going to get the job. These types of students are generally pretty honest with me, sometimes they even tell me how much they hate learning English and resent the fact that they have to spend their money on English class when they would rather be drinking beer and playing Candy Crush. Seeing language acquisition as nothing more than a work obligation is not going to make you enjoy the process and you are not going to be motivated to learn. You must find a way to see the benefits English can have in other aspects of your life and use that as a focus point of your classes. You spend all day at work talking about business, why don’t you make your English classes something totally different, something fun and entertaining. I’m sure your teacher would definitely be happy to help you find a way to connect your English learning to something more pleasurable to talk about.

3. You Haven’t Made a Habit Out Of It If you want to be good at something, you have to do it on a regular basis. Think of something you are good at, how did you become so good? Unless you have a natural gift, you probably spent a lot of time practicing or dedicating at least 10 to 20 minutes a day to that skill. This is also a necessity when learning a language and without making a habit out of practicing, you are not going to achieve English proficiency. A common exercise I give my students to practice in their spare time is the tour of the tenses. The objective of this is to go through the table of verb conjugations with 3 verbs a day and then present me with all the verbs they did in out next class. This is a simple exercise and it would probably take you 5 to 10 minutes a day, if you made a habit out of it. A lot of people get lazy and decide to do all of the verbs an hour before our class and get very frustrated with it and want to give up. What they fail to understand is that the purpose of this exercise isn’t just to practice the verb conjugations, but to start developing good habits. Leaving everything to the last minute and getting stressed is not a healthy way to learn anything, you need to pace yourself and develop convenient and stress-free habits to be able to maximize your learning ability. Ten to twenty minutes here and there is much better for you learning than 2 hours rushed before your class. 4. You Have No Accountability What’s that you say? You’re really busy and didn’t have any time to practice? That’s strange because your Facebook status on the weekend said “bored as hell on a Saturday with nothing to do.”Most people don’t hold themselves accountable for their own learning. When I ask my students if they got a chance to listen to any podcasts, read an English article, or practice in any way, the typical answer is – I was too busy, and I didn’t have any time. Maybe that’s true but I really doubt it. If you really want to learn something you are going to find time. There is no use lying to your English teacher because you are just lying to yourself. He or she doesn’t really care if you studied or not, they are not the ones that need to learn English, you are. To help my students from lying to themselves I get them to say “I didn’t make it a priority,” instead of saying, “I didn’t have time.” This helps the student to realize that the reason that they didn’t practice anything was because of their own problems, not because of exterior reasons. 5. You Think Your Teacher Is Some Sort of a Magician Imagine if you could go to a magic man or a witch doctor of some kind and ask them to make a special potion that when you drink it you can suddenly speak English. Unfortunately some people think that when you have class with a private teacher that is what happens. Sorry but I don’t have any magic tricks or special potions. You have to realize that a private teacher is more of a tour guide. We are teaching you the way to learn English and showing the right paths to take. Holding your hand along the process and answering your questions. If you think that 1 or 2 classes a week is enough to learn everything about English I’m sorry but you are wrong. You need to do use some initiative and be more of an independent learner. 6. You Think You Are Stupid And lastly, I have to tell you that learning to speak English is not rocket science. Don’t over complicate things. A lot of learners have the idea that they’re not the type of person who can learn languages, and with that kind of thinking of course you never will. To learn English you have to give yourself time, you can’t get too frustrated, and you can’t be afraid of making mistakes. If some of your colleagues are learning faster than you that doesn’t mean that they are smarter than you. You shouldn’t feel like a stupid person. Everyone has their own type of intelligence and their own way of learning.
