I love the language and culture and enjoy using real world materials and experiences to expose students to how they can use the language in everyday applications. I want to make sure that students can communicate in the language. If they can't communicate, what's the point? I also enjoy using stories to have students learn the language through reading, conversation, and listening. They invoke their prior knowledge and apply it to language learning.
