A dull teacher is a bad teacher, though he may hold enough certificates to paper a room. A good teacher will make his lessons interesting by his enthusiasm, his liveliness, his vigour, his careful preparation of lessons; by keeping his class constantly active and eager to use English; by not dwelling so long on any one aspect of the work that the students get bored or discouraged; by seeing that every student takes part in the lesson, which means encouraging the shy and diffident and seeing that the bolder and more self-confident do not monopolise all his attention.

A text-book, even the best text-book, is not a substitute for a teacher; and by placing one in his hand you have not done his work for him. Nothing could be deadlier than the lesson where a teacher slavishly follows a text-book and reads out questions, while his students, their eyes glued to their books, painfully spell out the answers.
Nor can a text-book without being impracticably big hope to give all the material for the intensive drill and practice that has been so often emphasized here. Much fun has Luzon made at the expense of these old fashioned writers; but they were not so foolish as they seem. A lesson is not the pouring of the wine of learning into empty passive bottles.
If it were the teacher would hardly matter: any full jug can fill empty bottles, and it is a psychological error to expect a pupil to be a passive recipient of information.
The most successful class is one where the students, not the teacher, do the greater part of the work. He tries to make Teaching a substitute for learning, and in doing so prevents the class from learning. And to be really successful it ought to be a happy partnership.
The friendly, sympathetic attitude of a teacher to a class brings out the best in both. There must be discipline, but it should be based on kindly firmness and never in any circumstances on sarcasm or ridicule at the expense of the weaker members of the class.
Guidance is given in the following pages, but the amount of time spent on each of the 32 lessons will depend on the quality of the class and the judgment of the teacher.
It really ought not to be more than fifteen, but sometimes we have no choice in the matter.

A student can come to the front and, picking up or touching objects, can ask the questions. Questions and answers will be slow at first but the teacher should gradually increase speed, firing questions at individual pupils until each pupil has answered two or three questions, and probably heard forty or fifty.
Step 4. A few new words, door, window, nose, mouth, knife, wall, clock if there is one or watch can conveniently be brought in.
