Trial lessons, also called demonstration lessons, are an opportunity for a person thinking about studying English conversation to see how well they fit into an English school’s teaching system. I teach at Smith’s School of English Tsukaguchi and for me, one of my greatest pleasures is helping a person gain the confidence to actually begin the studies they have been thinking about. Often people think about doing something to improve themselves but never actually do those things. I know I often think about going to the gym but unless I actually go to the gym my physical health will not improve. I often think I really want to study at a university again but unless I actually go to a university and enroll my mind will not improve. To improve we must think and then take action.
When a person arrives at my English school for a trial lesson they have thought and taken action. If I give a bad lesson then I could stop that action and that person will lose a fantastic opportunity to improve themselves. If I give a good lesson that helps them improve their English and they also feel comfortable in my classroom, they will probably decide to study English.
I always do my very best in every lesson. It is my job and my passion to help people improve once they have taken the effort and action to improve.
