    My whole aim with teaching is to make the experience as enjoyable and beneficial as possible. I am happy to stick to the constraints of examination preparation, but I find that it is a lot better to explore all and any aspects of language as they come up. Knowing those quirky facts or suddenly recognising what was strange about Christmas giftwrap in a French shop brings language alive, and with that, you'll get so much more out of learning than maybe you thought!
