I think the most difficult aspect of being any teacher is that some students/classes will be more difficult than others. You have to find a way to engage all types of students to be interested in the subject.

For instance, you may want to include some topics that are relevant to your students, like sports, television shows and other trendy topics.

Specifically for a language, most students will not see the advantage of knowing an extra language and will therefore not put their best efforts forward.

If you are passionate, I am sure you will find a way.
Thank you so much! I am sure it would give me an idea! Joselyn C. Translate

I taught for a little bit before moving onto the career I am in currently. One of the biggest challenges to me was dealing with the parents of children who were struggling. There wasn't anyone to support and encourage the kids that needed it most. I would try my best to be that person when they were with me but it's challenging to know they won't get it when they leave.

I am unsure of what age group you will be teaching but for younger individuals like high schoolers, one of the biggest struggles you will face is that many students who take Spanish, will not want to be there. They see the course as unnecessary and of no benefit. The challenge for you will be to show them how it is beneficial (if they want to vacation overseas, a lot of work forces include Spanish speaking immigrants and it helps as a team player or manager to be able to speak to them in their first language). You will need to find creative and fun ways to teach Spanish as well.
