It is known an English teacher has to be creative at all, in the way that he talks, use of didactic material, time to do the activities, help to students with doubts, vocabulary and the strategies to theach the content in a properly way. It is thought the last aspect mentioned is one fo the most important things as a teacher because it includes the level of activities, dynamics, and the way to explain the knowledge in a easier way, for example when we show students specific content while we are contextualizing them. In many cases, language teaching jobs are a precondition to be a native speaker of the language to be considered a good teacher, it is because according to George Braine (1999), native speakers speak more fluently and intuitively correct than their non-native colleagues, and they have sociolinguistic competence, which means they know how to speak appropriately, for this reason there are some advantages to take English classes with a native person because he can solve your doubts about grammar explanation, also you are going to be contextualized according to a new kind of culture.
