Who is your favourite teacher?

Have practice in speaking

My favourite teacher teaches us Ukrainian and Ukrainian literature. She is patient, caring and kind. She is very intelligent and has gift for teaching.  I appreciate her dedication to teaching and ability to develop relationships with her students. At the same time she is strict, so lazy pupils don’t like her. In my opinion, her way of teaching is rather fruitful. She persuaded us to learn plenty of grammar rules by heart. Owing to it, I almost never make mistakes both writing and speaking.

Our teacher also demands that we should read a lot of books. I am pleased that at our Literature lessons we express our own thoughts and opinions. Thanks to my teacher I have good knowledge of Ukrainian and Ukrainian Literature and these subjects have become my favourite ones at school. Our teacher taught us to understand the beauty of our mother tongue and love the world of Ukrainian poetry, the poetry of love for people and the native land. She always tells us that every Ukrainian should read such famous authors as Taras Shevchenko, Ivan Franko and Lesia Ukrainka who described the real life of Ukrainian people in the past. I find their books are very truthful and interesting. Among the modern Ukrainian poets I like Lina Kostenko most of all.

Our teacher besides teaching us, makes a lot for our bringing up. She teaches us to be a personality and to think of our actions. I think she has made a great influence on my life and me. Thanks to her I learned to be responsible and to have my own point of view on everything. I think my teacher’s advice will help me in my future life. The major one is to think before doing something and to analyze my and other people’s actions.
