“The most valuable resource that all teachers have is each other. Without collaboration our growth is limited to our own perspectives.”
Robert John Meehan
- Hi there and thanks for your time with us .P lease tell us a bit about yourself? And How long have you been an English teacher?
I was born on February 20th, 1989. My major at high school was mathematics, and then I took a personal interest in English. Mostly it was because I received English education at the ILI, and the ILI teachers aroused my enthusiasm toward English. Therefore, in 2007, I entered Yazd University in the field of English Literature. In 2012, I went to Tarbiat Modares University in Tehran to continue my studies for M.A.
In regard with my teaching experience, I have been teaching at the ILI since 2013. Before, teaching at the ILI, I had taught for different language institutes in Yazd for 5 years.
- Which levels do you teach at the ILI Mr. Mirdehghan ?
I teach Basic and Elementary levels at the ILI at the moment.
- Do you wish you had another job?
Of course, I’d like to have another job so as to experience more skills and get more information about the things around. Specifically, I hope to be a professional tour leader. Actually, I am a tour leader now, but not a professional one. But, I would never stop teaching; teaching parallel with other jobs.
- How do you think ILI classes are different! I mean the students?
The students are so assiduous at the ILI; partly it is due to the good schools and families they are coming from and mostly because of the system available at the ILI. I mean the fact that they are supposed to abide by the rules and regulations.
- And what kind of students are the best in your opinion?
Polite ones are the best ones! If all the students are courteous and quiet in the class (something that rarely happens), the efficacy of class environment reaches its optimum level for both teaching and learning.
- Who is your best coworker at the ILI?
I have lots of good friends at the ILI, and I have a friendly relationship with all of them. Best of mine is Mr. Rafiee. We are old friends. He is such a lovely guy who has always a nice smile on his face.
- What is your favorite level to teach Sir?
I like to teach Basic3 more than other levels I teach. Because there are some good points in it, and you can see the progress of the students. Those points are three common tenses in English, by which the students can speak more easily.
- Do you have any good memories at the ILI?
I try to make a good memory both for myself and my students every day. Unfortunately, though I rack my brain, I cannot recall any noteworthy one.
- Too bad ! What are your hobbies?
Translation, I love translation. But I must say I am not very good at it. 😉 .Apart from translation, I take trips with my family, even if I have time for only a very short one.
- Do you like movies ,too?
Previously, I had been a big fan of movies and I spent most of my time watching movies or going to the movies. Recently, my attitude has changed.
- Which post of MOFIDILI.com do you recommend English students to read?
To be honest, all parts and posts of the website are worthwhile. But, I really like the weekly quizzes because of three reasons: they are informative, they are updated, and they help students with their English.
- Great to hear that ! 😉 Anything else to say dear Mr.Mirdehghan?
Thank you very much indeed for having an interview with me for your website, I wish you the best. And I’d like to thank the readers who allocated their precious time to reading this interview.
- Thanks a million and good luck!
