Hi, I am Emi, from South Sulawesi, Indonesia. I am a native Indonesian and Bugis, especially Soppeng dialect. I have a degree in English and work as a freelance translator from English into Bahasa Indonesia and Buginese.
Me as a Teacher
I learn English since I was a teenager in a wrong way, which was focus on learning and memorizing grammar theory with so little speaking and listening practice. It effects my English until today as I develop slowly. I wish I can go back in time and start over. Now I have an opportunity to teach my native languages and I want to apply the best way to learn a new language to the students who share similar difficulty in understanding grammar, just like me.
My lessons & teaching style
I only teach adult. I also don't provide grammar lessons. I choose listening, comprehension, and conversation to be the basic of language learning. This is how native speaker gets their native language, after all. My class would be relax and fun. Of course, my method and materials will be based on student's language level and preference.
For Bahasa Indonesia, I use self-modified BIPA in my teaching, while for Bugis language, I develop my own material.
