Do you really believe it is not important to know your students native language to teach them.
I see all these websites that says "No need to know a foreign language. Go abroad and teach English". This is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Lets look at Russian against English prepositions very rarely line up. If a teacher does not realize this how are they going to understand how to help the student to understand? He will confuse the student. I see this being miss taught all the time and it hurts the students. http://goo.gl/9hn2R is an article I wrote about. I do not know why native English speakers feel every one should just learn English. By the way Patricia Ryan is great in this video.
