teacher, enjoyable learning, effective teaching


A teacher plays an important role in classroom activities. It is his/her duty to decide the kinds of learning materials, activities, as well as learning strategies for the students. He/she should have skills to conduct his/her students so they can learn English enthusiastically. An English teacher should be able to create an enjoyable teaching and learning process. Obviously, the most important factor in effective teaching and learning situation is not who the teacher is, but how the teacher acts in the classroom, and how he/she involves his/her students during the process. Therefore, the teacher should give students opportunities to express their opinions, ideas, or feelings during the classroom process.
