Hi Nikita,

This is a wonderful forum.

I have two questions:

1. I would like to know what students think about the following: Do you prefer teachers who are native or non-native speakers of English?

2. What is meant by "since because for no particular reason" and how can it be corrected?

Thank you.

Hi, Nellie.

I quitted studying at IH, nevertheless I still regard myself as a student. So your first question is addressed to me as well.

I prefer teachers who have a gift for teaching, regardless whether they are native or non-native speakers. A teacher who aspires me, motivates me, who is sincere in his work is up to my liking.

Best wishes,
Sergiy Vakshul

Hello, Nellie

I totally agree with Sergei. I have seen really great teachers of foreign languages. Some of them are native-speakers and some of them are not.

My personal opinion is that there are some pros and cons in any case. But generally it depends on the teacher.

About your second questions. I’d either say "because of no particular reason", or "since there wasn’t any reason, we … (did something)". What would you say?

Best regards,
