Two years ago in September, my mother sent me to the international class of Eaton House to study English. At that time my English was not good, and I was only able to say some simple greeting phrases and sentences. I felt a bit panic when I arrived at Eaton House on my first day there, because I do not know how to adapt to this “strange language” and unfamiliar learning environment. But fortunately, I met an amiable, and very patient teacher. Her care and help helps me quickly adapt to the unfamiliar language and learning environment. From then on, I began to fall in love with this wonderful language－English . I think in the future no matter where I go, which school I go to, I will always use all my love to learn English.
She is an Australian teacher whose name is Claire. She has long and brown hair. She always likes to wear a long skirt. Claire is a little introverted, and she always keeps smiling to us. I still remember the first day when I walked into the classroom, I was very shy. Looking at me, she smiled and then came towards me, saying: "Good morning, I'm Claire, your English teacher, I guess you are the new student Adam, right?” At that time I did not understand the English she said to me, and I did not know how I should respond to her, so I just smiled to her shyly, without any words. She seemed to know my embarrassment, so she smiled and said: "Never mind." Then she slowed down her speed and asked again: " Your name is Adam ?" This time, I caught her meaning and nodded my head: "yes." Seeing that I understood her, she gave me a big hug, and said with great passion: "Adam, you are very welcome to join our class.
Claire is a very caring person, she would set different teaching plans for each student according to their different English level. She likes to design different kinds of games to make us more interested to learn English. For example, when we finish learning the new words, she will organize all the students to sit in a circle. Everyone will get a word card. When she said a new word, the student who holds that word card will put up his or her hand, and say the word out loudly. Claire will also take us to the playground to play Word-Link game. She will still take us out of the campus to the park nearby to teach us more words and knowledge. I like these forms of teaching very much. Therefore, I began to gradually fall in love with English.
Claire is also a very patient and loving teacher. One time, she gave me an assignment that I could not understand. She sat down next to me, carefully explaining it to me, and give me an example to make it more easily understood. She would also change a more simple word or make use of a few gestures to help me understand the words. Finally I finished the job with her help. Her care and love moved me a lot, and I determined to learn English hard from then on.Although it has just been a year to be her student, I am greatly impressed by her love and care. I'm really grateful to her help and encouragement. I hope my foreign teacher Clare who is now far away in Japan will have a happy and wonderful life.
