Body language and tone of voice:
Project positivity with relaxed, open body language. Use a calm, warm, and professional tone of voice that is age-appropriate for our students. Speak in an authentic way even if you slow your speech rate down a bit for lower levels.
• Body language varies from culture to culture. Examples below reflect negative and positive American body language.
No: scowling and frowning, rolling your eyes to be dismissive, throwing your hands up in the air to show frustration, crossing your arms over your chest or tapping your foot to indicate impatience, shaking a pointed finger at someone while correcting them
Yes: smiling, maintaining a calm and neutral face while enforcing rules, relaxing your arms and shoulders, nodding to indicate agreement or encouragement

• Never use “baby talk,” “sugary” language, or a condescending tone.
No: Oh, sweetie, you are doing such a super, great, wonderful job.
Yes: Carlos, good job - you used five new vocabulary words in your homework assignment.

• Don’t be sarcastic. It is not funny and it hurts students’ feelings. No: Marta, what part of “Stop talking” did you not understand? Yes: Marta, it is time to listen now.
