thanks Mark, English has been a pain for me for years. I never succeed to fill up gaps, though I teach English in my country. Still my English needs improvement

And it would be a pain for the rest of your career if you continue teaching the language.

When I was a student, the Internet was not available. It did not exist. But now, things are completely different.

"English has been a pain for me for years. I never succeed to fill up gaps, though I teach English in my country."
why whould anyone start teaching a language he or she does not like? it's like if I were starting to teach maths or anything like that... hope you'll notice that English is not painful at all =)
don't you like it cuz you are not really good at it or don't you like it cuz teaching it is so terrible?
I always wanted to become an English teacher in a foreign country when I was a kid, but now I've been to Germany and I've tried to teach and - nonononono I don't want to do that again cuz no one is participating or anything and there's hardly anybody interested in the stuff I trya tell those kids at all.... so teaching English can be very very painful...
by the way, which country are you from?

I attended a local "Writing For Pleasure" class. The lady who actually sat at the front was an English tutor and she taught within another County. She was 52 and very good at helping the class to write and to open up themselves. It was constructive and helped all that atteneded.

She marked our work. She would check the grammer and she missed little. Sometimes she would question mark something she spotted because she wasn't sure if it would be right or wrong. She was very thorough.

One day I asked her if she had ever written a book, or at least some short stories. She told me that she had never written a story, at least not of her own design but more for instructional purposes. I was puzzled by that. Here was a lady that taught English grammer that had never put pen to paper of anything for herself. I said I didn't quite understand and wondered why she would want to teach people to do something she didn't do herself. She replied with:

"Because, Frank, there are those that do and there are those that teach."

What say you teachers?
