So for any new teacher, the thought of making a mistake in the classroom in terms of delivering a lesson, can be seen as completely dreadful and the amount of self-destruction that goes down about it is way too much.

So here I want to address few common errors and what I have found it a way around it.

If you are a native speaking teacher and you are teaching students in a foreign land, chances are they are very happy about having you for a start. This will put you at a real advantage. However, if you are a non-native teacher, there…
