  • My name's Sara and I'm from Sweden.

  • I like teaching because I really love it when my students don't start out speaking really

  • good English, but then after a while, when I teach them more stuff

  • I really like it to see them to start to speak.

  • They get more brave.

  • It's really nice.

  • I think the best way to study English is through reading.

  • I read a lot when I was younger.

  • And some people say they don't like to read, but it's my favorite thing.

  • And I learnyou learn a lot of words that way.

  • It would be someone who really wants to learn English.

  • I think that a lot of people think that through their job, or their boss, they just have to

  • learn it.

  • But they're not really that motivated, so I would definitely say someone who enjoys

  • the language, maybe they even like British, American culture.

  • That kind of person is my ideal student.

  • The worst student.

  • That's hard to say.

  • I haven't had a lot of bad students so far.

  • But maybe someone who is really uninspired.

  • When you can feel that they don't want to be there.

  • They don't really want to learn English.

  • Someone else forced them to learn English.

  • You don't really want to teach someone like that.

  • Ya, I do.

  • I think it's really nice.

  • Because I love languages.

  • So teaching English is one of the things I like the most.

  • I speak

  • On native level I speak English, Swedish, Norwegian, and I'm also intermediate in

  • Korean, Japanese, and French.

  • I classify myself as a native English speaker.

  • But technically, I was born in Sweden.

  • I learned English through reading.

  • That's why I said I think it's the best way to learn.

  • I read all the time.

  • And I love English.

  • I would learn difficult words.

  • I read Bram Stoker's Dracula, for example, when I was really young.

  • And when I didn't understand something, I'd look up the words.

  • So that's how I learnt the most.

  • And I spoke to a lot of British and American friends, so I practiced that a lot.

  • I actually prefer British.

  • But I tend to use more Americanized kind of English.

  • Because it's easier for me to use for some reason.

  • But, British sounds the best I think,

  • Hello, my name's Sara.

  • And now also Korea, Japan, and Hong Kong.

  • Do you have any questions for her?

  • Look at me.
