It’s been what I’m probably calling a year of italki lessons. It’s been good to keep me going through tough times. I’ve switched jobs such a couple of month’s ago and I’m still ‘transitioning’ to the new stuff.
New insurance, new paperwork, new websites, etc…etc… But for the most part I’ve kept up the schedule of italki lessons. I’m trying out some new italki teachers and reaching out to some that have fallen off with the schedule they provide(basically very little open slots from them) and planning for the next year of lessons.
One teacher I have tried with a few lessons and has exploded onto italki . He started back in March of this year and is just a few lessons short of teaching already 1000 lessons. Wow! I finally had to try him out. I’ve only had 3 lessons with him and should give him at least 10 lessons before saying anything but I needed to write something this month on my blog. He uses a green screen and various pictures and videos to teach Korean. Not earth shaking stuff but at the same time it’s something that really brighten’s up the lessons. Using that type of green screen that is used in video production he’s trying to introduce that as a instruction tool while teaching korean.
In teaching a second language I think it helps activating the visual cortex inside your brain and trying to use a green screen and various pictures and videos while teaching helps out a lot.
He has built up a huge number of lessons taught and at this rate could surpass all the other teachers lessons in another years time. I’ll personally see after another 10 lessons or so how it personally works for me but trying some new teacher’s is helping me get excited about another year of korean language lessons on italki.
