I love teaching 6 to 10 year olds. High school students are a waste of time. Some adults are good to teach if they are paying for it themselves. If the company is paying, I just feel like I'm wasting my time, as they feel they are correct when they arn't and it's so frustrating. I have to agree though a mix f children and adults keeps all sides good

You can see the whole truth in the polls.

The older they get the less fun they become. I guess exams killed the fun in them.

I prefer university age. I have taught second graders (yeah, I loved the little shavers!) but also taught university in Indiana. The great difference for me is that in at least a general sense, the university level and even adult learners WANT to be in class. HS and under usually have to be there whether they want to be or not.

I surely prefer teaching to preschoolers since they give you so much while you're giving to them. it's very interesting seeing that they looove "playing with english"...From middle school on they just do it because they have to..it's no fun...

I prefer 7 to 10 year olds because they progress so fast in learning. Also I like adults from about 18 and above.

Now I am teaching university graduates. It's so exciting. They like to share their new experiences in the job market. Sometimes I feel like I am just being paid to listen to them.

Arrow Re: What age group do you prefer?

Hi to all
I ve taught every age group, and like the variety.My last job was business English at 7 in the morning, teenagers after school, and younger kids Saturday morning, but I do think 9 to 11 age group is the most fun.
I agree also with the person who said you can use the same materials, just a different attitude.I have many activities that I ve used with 10 year olds as well as business people...no problem!
I will get round to sharing some of my ideas with eslhq, my favorite teaching website...brilliant, thanks.
