This internship report details my four month journey as a teacher and what I have learned from this journey. I have also discussed what I have done well and what I feel I could have done better. I describe my contribution in terms of my students’ learning, as well as my continuous effort to help my students to learn better. In this report I have also critically reflected my teaching, citing examples from my teaching experiences. In my teaching I attempted to implement what I have learnt attending various courses during my undergraduate study. However, I feel it is not always easy or possible to implement what the books suggest; rather I need to innovate and make activities more fun and enjoyable for my students. I have discussed a few of these experiences. I consider myself lucky to get the chance to do my internship at a renowned English Medium School named Brighton (pseudonym) school. The internship was four months in duration. During this internship, my responsibility was to help children to improve their English skills. Along with that I was also attempted to make them interested in study, specially developing their English speaking skills. The school follows the textbook like “The Radiant Way, 2nd Step”. Along with the suggested text I used some other interesting stories like Aesop’s Fable to teach my students. Finally, this experience makes me rethink about teaching and helped me to get many practical experiences.
