Right now, I'm working for a private company in Indonesia which manages department stores, supermarkets and bookstores. We cater to many foreign customers who speak English so that is where I come in.
I train the employees to communicate in and use English to further their service to the customers.
My students are Indonesians, so I don't have variety in terms of nationalities. They are in their twenties to fifties. They are hard working people but of course there are some who don't see training and learning as part of their work. Overall though, Indonesian's niceties stand and they don't give me troubles.
Like my previous group of students, who were teenagers taking extra classes, these people come in a variety pack of personalities. Mostly naughty. LOL.
They like to laugh and joke which fit my way of teaching tremendously. I like to use a lot of speculation inducing questions to get them to speak and with their curious and fun nature, it works really well.
I work with a low level of competency here which can be boring compared to my previous group but I'm digging the challenge of finding methods to make things easier for them and yet still pushing them to the limit. It's good fun!
