To be a good teacher,you need some of the talents of a good actor:you must be able to hold attention and interest of your students;you must be a clear speaker,with a good,strong,pleasing voice which is fully under your control;you must be able to act what you are teaching,in order to make its meaning clear.
A good teacher does't sit still before his class；he stands all the time while he is teaching;he walks about, using his arms,hands and fingers to help him in his explanations,and his face to express his feelings.Listen to him,and you will hear the loudness,the quality and musical note of his voice always changing according to what he is talking about.
The fact that a good teacher has some of the gifts of a good actor doesn't mean he will indeed be able to act well on the stage,for the re are very important differences between the teacher's work and the actor's.the actor has to speak words he has learnt by heart；he has to repeat exactly the same words each time he plays a certain part,even his movements and the ways in which he uses his voice are usually fixed beforehand.What he has to do is to make all the se carefully learnt words seem natural on the stage.
A good teacher works in quite a different way.His audience takes an active part in his play-the y ask and answer questions,the y obey orders,and if the y don't understand something,the y say no.the teacher the refore has to meet the needs of his audience.He can't learn his part by heart,because the ir brains couldn't keep discipline:the y couldn't keep strictly to what another has written.
