I am writing this quick post to share a realisation I came to this week.
After one year of worrying and studying for Cambridge Delta module 1, I finally feel it’s paying off. Even if I won’t pass the exam in December, I recently saw the fruit of all my hard work, which makes it worthwhile.
Namely, this week I felt confident and at ease teaching an upper-intermediate pronunciation class, which I would have been terrified of doing last year. I was also able to plan and deliver an intermediate-level study skills workshop, concentrating on dictionary skills and routine-building for language study.
Both these experiences made me understand how much I’ve grown in the past year, thanks to a supportive environment at school, CDP, as well as Delta, and how much I can still grow with the next modules and (hopefully) years of work.
I can now say that all that (supposedly free) time spent reading and reflecting was indeed well spent. 🙂
