Just over a year ago, James started a new job. After ten years as a teacher, he was going to start teaching groups of teenagers for the first time. Up to this point, he had only taught adults, with a few teens in amongst the older students, but now he would have groups of exclusively teens. Needless to say, it was an intense and rewarding opportunity. In this talk, he will discuss the things that he has learned about English teaching through this new experience in his career.
