Inspiration from Ellen Degeneres Show: Never Have I Ever : present perfect I firmly believe that the way you present things to your students matters . From boring points of grammar to challenging speaking activities, there is always a way to get their attention. I am of the opinion that students learn much better if you completely discard from your teaching the idea of boring master classes where the only person in the room seems to be the teacher and choose instead a more interactive approach. I try hard not to forget this student -centred approach during the whole lesson .
