I have learnt that the intelligence of a student alone is not enough but requires a teacher's input for them to learn English.A teacher can teach using different methodologies as well as teaching techniques and classroom activities that can help make lessons live and easy to deliver.To produce results a teacher needs to use more methods and techniques.Not all institutions have access to all different kinds of teaching equipment. In many language schools I was lucky enough to have just a white board. The more teaching aids the teacher has to his disposal, the more interesting and effective the lessons will be. The online resources mentioned in this unit are comprehensive and a good aid to the teacher.
