hi miss eng.
i live in the uae and i was a teacher for more than 19 yrs in here. as we all know there are 4 main skills for english language and i think the most important skill students needs in the gulf area is the skill of speaking.. there is a big lack of this skill ....most of the students feel shy or afraid from making mistakes so from my point of view they need u to emphasis on this skill through encouraging them to speak and talk about things which are familiar for them and easy to use in simple language ..i myself try on purpose to make speaking mistakes and make students feel it and correct it for me and they were so happy to do so ..sicne that they didnt feel shy any more to talk and accept corrections from me and from their class mates ..i hope that could help u in a way or another to improve yr students skills ..good luck
