I it is of crucial importance to regularly study

I am very attached to English language because it carries enchantment and logic. While the study of languages seems monotonous and fastidious to many people, to me it is an endless ocean of amusement. My appreciation of English study originated from my reading of literary classics that motivated me to choose a profession of an English teacher. With my strong interests and incessant persistence, I did very well in my academic performance, holding a Bachelor’s degree of Philology & Qualification of a Teacher awarded with honor. Moreover, the school where I did my internship noticing my enthusiastic personality offered me an opportunity to work. I consider that part of my life both fascinating and challenging. I developed impressive methods for teaching concepts, explaining the basics of English through creative approaches, and giving extra guidance as required, so as not leave any student behind.  As time went by, I found that I wanted to further develop my understanding of teaching English and to research the various language-related problems that I had observed teaching at school. Thus, I started to prepare for the TOEFL examination for doing Master’s Program offered by AUA. Furthermore, it is important for me to mention that for strengthening my knowledge of English I did a lot of volunteering and participated in many trainings, seminars, and workshops related to education and teaching. To illustrate, I worked one month as a volunteer translator in CAU NGO and I participated in “One week in Aghveran” event organized by Wikimedia Armenia and translated articles from English into Armenian which enhanced my English vocabulary. Afterwards from september 2017 till now I enjoy teaching English as a volunteer in TNY Language House in several different levels which not only have developed in me the ability to quickly adapt, to think on my feet, but have been given me greater insight into the challenges facing those wanting to learn English. Likewise, it was a great honor for me to attend British Council Armenia’s event delivered by Jeremy Harmer and in “What National Geographic Can Do for Your English Language Classroom and Power of the Image” seminar delivered by Tim Pearse. These two highly motivated teacher trainers greatly changed my understanding of teaching English.Nowadays, studying English language has become one of the most important responsibilities for Armenian students. Meanwhile, when you look at our recently prepared, unattractive textbooks, they are far from global developments. Indeed, they turn off any desire to think and learn. Thus, considering the present English teaching conditions in Armenia, I think we face the need to create a new educational culture to meet the challenges of a modern, interdependent world. We need to inspire our students to effectively study English language. To attain this goal, for a person like me, determined to be an English teacher, it is of crucial importance to regularly study the advanced teaching courses such as TEFL Methodology, Classroom Assessment, English Grammar Structure & Pedagogy, Lesson planning, etc. American University of Armenia draws my attention exactly in that and it provides the courses that suit me best.It is my aim to eventually become one of the strongest teachers in Armenia, researching the different aspects of English, and how it is learned and taught. I want to observe more and more methods from outstanding professors and eventually become one of the few teachers (I hope few will become many) that will change the understanding of teaching in Armenia.I will be very thankful if you could give me that awesome opportunity to study in AUA, and reach to my destination.
