    Thank you!  I teach mainly academic English for provisionally admitted incoming university students (pre-freshmen) and composition for freshmen.

    Academic English is crucial to success, the sooner our learners understand this, the better it will be. In today's scenario it's not just the learning of a language that matters: a language user must understand the many kinds of variety required and should master the flexibility required for the many kinds of language use.

    Greetings!
    I am Motiram Sijapati from Nepal and teach students ranging the age group 8 to 16 in Nepal. It is mixed class environment here and I would like to get the strategies and techniques that you have been applying in your classrooms.

    As I teach them I use different methods and techniques as  one method can hardly fit all.

    I am seeking your suggestions to enrich my students' skills and competencies in  learning English language skills.


    With best regards,
