As a business school student, I can't help but notice the problem with the business model of so many Ukrainian public schools, where English lessons are delivered by a single instructor to large groups through rote tasks and repetition. "Good morning! Good morning! Good morning!" Meantime, clients line up for private lessons based on individual, free-form conversations. But public schools typically lag behind. When will custom-learning become the standard?
I am a business student at Kyiv National Economics University, and a part-time private English tutor. I have been studying the market for English language lessons in Kyiv, since it is probably the most popular thing to study outside of school, and a huge clientele is ready to pay for results.
Maybe children don't know that they have the desire to learn, but they have the desire to be powerful, to understand things, and to have fun. Who wouldn't? When learning seems like an unnatural punishment, then no child wants it. When it is happening by accident, they call it fun.
