– Sure, I started working as a teacher in Japan and stayed there for 10 years. By the way, I got acquainted with my future wife there.
– You were in Japan for a long time, did you manage to learn the language?

– Oh, I see. You have such a big working experience as a teacher, would you please give some recommendations to the teachers how to hold successful classes?
Every teacher should:
- find out what topics the students are interested in;
- always give homework so students learn to study by themselves as a teacher, always give homework, so students learn to study by themselves;
- always have a Plan B in case an activity does not work; also, have the confidence to say "Stop! Let’s do something else".
– We have already talked about everything, so let’s talk about your hobbies now. What do you like to do when you have free time?
– I like listening to country music, reading biographies and jogging, apart from it
We have a tradition in our family, we do not buy bread, but I cook it myself, so one of my hobbies is cooking bread.
During our conversation with Mark, I have realized that Mark is not only an awesome teacher, but also a great psychologist and has a sense of humour. So if you are hesitating with whom to study, pick Mark and you will never regret about that.
