Hi. I'm Jael. from Dominican Republic and my question is, who was your favorite teacher and why?
My favorite teacher was my Spanish teacher in high school. He was a very fun teacher. I remember that we were always paying attention in his classes. He used to talk a lot, he didn't used to bore at all. He didn't use to bore, he didn't brag. He was always talking but his classes were so interesting that we were always paying attention and trying to write every word he said.
I remember he used to say, "Listen, don't write every word I say, just try to identify the main ideas and just write that," and that is something that I'm still using today. Because of my job, sometimes I have to go to seminars and taking notes is really easy for me today because I can grasp the main ideas. I can listen and just write those ideas that are really important and that I can use to remember the material, the topic. I'm really grateful for that teacher because he taught me something that I'm still using today.
The more you listen, the faster you improve!
