This is perhaps a very common situation that most teachers have to go through—having a fellow teacher’s child in your classroom. A situation like this can sometimes upset the dynamics of a class. How should you as a teacher treat your colleague’s child so as not to seem biased in anyway? What should you do to allow the child to handle the situation rationally?

At a very early age children build an understanding of the world around them through the 'home language'. Therefore, it is important to use a child’s  home language as an important resource in second or third  language teaching, keeping the language acquisition process in mind.
