Each year hundreds of school-leavers face a dilemma of what university or college to choose. They study the ratings and facts, files on the web, analyze the information and meet career advisers. Very often they feel tired and upset with the constant feeling of anxiety and fear of the future. However, the choice of the future education and career is not that difficult if we try to consider several simple points.
When I decided to become a teacher, my choice caused a lot of raised eyebrows. To say that my parents and friends were surprised means to put it in a very mild way. The matter is that I have always been a very apt student with a huge learning potential, but with a significant complication: I was considered by my teachers to be bad-tempered, noisy and difficult to deal with, while I considered them to be boring, mediocre and very often unprofessional. So, my career path choice seemed really very strange. When my father asked me about the reasons, I simply explained that I wanted to be a good teacher.
Sooner or later any education professional faces a question crucial for the successful development of his or her career: why does it happen that I can feel free and work effectively with some groups of students, and at the same time I am totally unable to cope with a different group? Does it depend on how good the students are? Then who are the good students for me?
History is an odd thing. When many centuries ago Germanic tribes of Angles, Saxons and Jutes, who were speaking a number of different dialects, invaded Britain, there were very few chances that their language would survive and become one of the most widely spoken languages on the planet and definitely the most important one for the international communication. However, this unbelievable thing happened and now each day more and more people want to learn the English language.
