ExperienceGlobal students learn incorrect English very young which develops poor hard-to-break English habits and hinders correct English speaking. Various teaching experiences and observations demonstrated ineffective, inefficient, and incorrect English skills that inhibit effective, efficient, and correct English speaking. Global English teachers and many textbooks promote bad habits that limit thorough communication. Bad English habits do not comprehensively translate into thoroughly understandable communication. New imperative English habits produce highly effective communication results demonstrated in daily speaking and writing skills. Teaching much adjective usage helps reduce over-usage of "be-verbs," and too many prepositions. Contractions do not translate well and are often misunderstood. They NEVER belong in formal language. The imperative English model: "The" or "My" [adjective] [noun] [verb, without be-verbs, like: is, are] greatly enhances English clarity and understanding. For example, "The gorgeous Swiss views attract many tourists yearly." "The white wine-basted turkey perfectly satisfies American families." Let me greatly enhance your English skills.
Teaching experiences include: Teaching English in South Korea, while abroad and living in Korean, and online to most all ages in all learning levels and enhances learning with personal travel experiences to the U.S., Amsterdam, Egypt, Japan, South Korea, and Mexico. I also have several years of teaching experience with several public schools and private academies. Idioms and metaphors create even more challenges.

Various learning models effect different students. Some students prefer to learn the traditional method of being face-to-face. Some students learn through video chat or phone conversations.
