Nowadays, English certificate is considered as a passport to a well-paid job. Therefore, the numbered of people learning English as the second language is increasing rapidly. Everyone wants to find out the way to study effectively. In my point of view, study English with native speaker teachers will make a big positive difference. First of all, it is made sure that native speakers understand completely about English, which they have used since they were small. There are many words which have the same meaning in English but each is used in different situations.
The native teachers know exactly about these words and as a result, the accuracy of the learners in using English will be improved. Certainly, the native teachers have no serious mistake so the learners can believe in their teachers’ knowledge. Secondly, the learners’ ability to communicate will be developed. The native teachers have to use English with their students all the time, which will help the learners speak more fluent and natural. Not only their pronunciation but also their listening skill will be improved.
Some may think that the native teachers would have problems in explaining the lesson to their students but in fact, there is no problem. They can use simples words to definite a complicated word, they can use their actions, pictures, etc.. British council, Acet, Language link, Ila have been succeeded in teaching English with their native teachers. Finally, the learners can approach to English culture from their teachers and I believe that they will be more interested in learning this language.
