Taking Up A New Challenge

Taking Up A New Challenge

/ By: Barby Ann Tampus /

 

Ever since I started my career, I have always thought of teaching as an impelling challenge. Students are not only merely taught letters and/or numbers but are built to make a difference in their lives. This makes teaching a fulfilling job and a lifetime commitment.
I have faced multiple challenges in my profession and teaching English to multi-cultural students is one thing.
When I started teaching in this school, I was not sure to be up for the challenge. I have met a lot of new experiences that put me up to a test of my ability as a teacher. It has never been so easy to get by.
Aided by my colleagues and seniors at work, I have gotten used to the environment and everything is starting to look up.
Now I am up for a new challenge. Teaching test preparation course, such as TOEIC, can be a daunting experience for me. The things that need to be taught and, to a large extent how they are taught, depend largely on the content of the test and the way it is assessed. Many of our students are studying for the TOEIC test because they have a very real need to improve their scores. It is quite hard in the beginning because I need to start off from choosing appropriate materials to help preparing students succeed in the test.
This may seem big of a challenge and a heavy responsibility to me because the quality of my teaching and the effectiveness of my lessons may impact the lives and careers of my students.
Thus, as teachers, we help students get serious about improving their English skills and we must need to give them a sort of motivation to make the effort.

A Boredom Reliever

“A Boredom Reliever”

/ By: Ruth Inocentes /

The 1:00 PM class is for many people the most tiresome class. It’s when we want to take a siesta right after lunch. For working people, however, it’s the time to resume work, and the teachers in Philinter are not exempted. It has always been quite a challenge for me to teach TOEIC Reading at this period. Either I’m sleepy or my student is! At first it was difficult, but in the end, I got the hang of it.

Then I met my new student from Taiwan. He was totally different because he was always so “high” at lunchtime. I don’t have a clue where he got so much energy, but it helped us a lot. His enthusiasm and eagerness to learn/improve his skills was incredible. Sure enough, he got better and better each day after a series of mock tests every weekend for two months; and before long, he was able to reach his target.

What I’m trying to point out here is that our personality, combined with determination, will help us get ahead in life ? especially when taking the TOEIC course. No matter what time of the day you study TOEIC, or how you feel on that day, you have to do your part as a learner because you have a goal. Don’t rely too much on your teacher. Just like my student Matt!

Teachers’ Hard Work

“Teachers’ Hard Work”

BY: Ritchie S. Calimpusan

???????????????????????? It is my first time to have this many TOEIC students in my class. At first, I was worried because I thought I couldn’t give what they wanted. However, as time went by, I got used to it with the help of my co-teachers and the TOEIC supervisor. In addition, handling this course is not that simple because we teachers must prepare ourselves and the materials for the students. It is quite hard; most especially if some of them are new, because you have to let them understand the techniques and strategies that would enable them to get higher scores in TOEIC. If the students could get high scores, the teachers will be satisfied and become more inspired to continue their ways to help their students achieve their dreams.

?Taking up TOEIC guarantees that you learn a variety of language skills in Business English, as well as fixed and common expressions used in conversation.? Moreover, teachers focus on the strategies on how to formulate the correct responses to common queries found in the test and to get acquainted with distractors that could lead students to answer incorrectly.

Philinter offers different specialized courses such as IELTS, IPS, Business and TOEIC. As a TOEIC teacher of already 4 years, I have met different kinds of students who also have different levels when it comes to their English skills. As a teacher, I study my lessons in advance to be prepared for the class. I teach my students vocabulary that are commonly found in reading parts 5, 6 and 7; and I also teach them how to answer grammar questions in parts 5 and 6 of the Reading test.

TOEIC EXPRESS”? Your Ticket to Move Up

“TOEIC EXPRESS”? Your Ticket to Move Up”

/By: Ruth C. Inocentes/

When was the last time you had your English skills checked? Were you pleased by the result? If not, what was the most difficult part of knowing the opposite of what you expect of your English test result?

For most people, accepting failure is the toughest thing to deal with, especially knowing that they have given themselves to their studies, but still suffered a lot of setbacks. Despite studying day in and day out, reading a variety of English books, or memorizing thousands of words ? moving up seemed so unrealizable. It was like a feeling of being cornered in the most terrible place on earth. If you are one of those people, don’t just sit and wait for another failure. Nothing is going to happen if you don’t take the initiative and don’t do anything that could change your situation.

I teach Part 7 (Reading Comprehension) of TOEIC. Since I started, I’ve had a lot of students who made me so proud of being one of their instructors. Most of them, if not all, were able to achieve their goals as far as the improvability of their reading and vocabulary skills is concerned ? just like the ones I’ve had lately. First is Jerry, a Taiwanese student, who increased his score from 595 (diagnostic test) to 680 in just 2 weeks. Kathy, who is Taiwanese as well, got 770 in just a matter of 3 weeks ? that’s 175 points higher than her diagnostic test. Another Taiwanese named Joshua has gained 820 after 6 weeks of taking a series of mock tests. But the one that really touched me the most is Mily, who is a Japanese student. She cried when she got 800 the day before her graduation. It may sound a little dramatic but her tears meant a lot to us, her teachers. All her effort really paid off.

These students symbolize hard work and dedication towards learning TOEIC. With our help and guidance to students’ study habits combined with their aim to successfully reach their target, they were able to find satisfaction and more inspiration to arrive at the place where they are destined to be at. The credible teaching force of the TOEIC Course in Philinter would serve as the fastest train that could take you to your dream destination. After all, you have to be very quick to be able to compete in the world of business and commerce as far as communication is concerned. The road of life has many detours, but we can assure you that we will not make any unnecessary stops. Our goal is not to put off till tomorrow what you can progress today. So don’t pass up this chance because your future is at stake.

TOEIC is a standardized test that measures students’ abilities in all aspects of English. Learning all the strategies is not a small task. Students need to unleash their flair in learning the skills. However, these things would not be possible without the guidance of the professional TOEIC teachers in PHILINTER. For the educators, having all the necessary things to enhance the listening, vocabulary and grammar skills of the students is a must.? Such as undergoing trainings and series of tests to fully enrich their capabilities. To sum it up, learning needs collaboration between the teachers and students. As the saying goes, it takes two to tango.
