To what extent do you feel your teacher can influence how well you enjoy and succeed at learning a foreign language? What qualities do you look for that you'd say make someone a good teacher? Personally, I place a lot of importance on the quality of teaching I receive and the teacher as well. I like a teacher who's confident and knows what he's doing, an impartial and attentive teacher who divides his time across all students accordingly, someone who boosts your confidence and also not afraid to push you, among others. I once too some French lessons at this place where the teacher was native, but seemed rather distracted by one of the girls in my class. He obviously had a crush on her and would relentless flirt with her and concentrate most of his time and teaching on her, which left a very bitter taste in the mouths of the rest of the class. Needless to say, we never really learnt much, didn't enjoy the experience and I left after one term. I found his conduct very unprofessional to say the least.
