  1. thanks for your sharing about the benefits of chalkboard in teaching.
    I agree with you that chalkboard is an important tool, a teaching aids to support for teacher. your ideas is good for us to apply in the lesson. however, you should mention to other advantages of chalkboard in teaching a foreign language like an available visual aid in class to help students can learn better. And you also need to add more about the others teaching aids in class such as : teacher, students,.. to view the relationship between them in teaching. so, i think in the future to become a good teacher of English, we can use these teaching aids effectively.
