Teachers’ Corner receives letters from around the globe. Read how two English teachers in Africa use WWE in their classrooms:


I am a Peace Corps Youth Development Volunteer currently serving in Morocco. I am working at a Sports and Youth Center teaching English. I have been in my community for almost three months now and I am still in the process of developing the English Language program at my center. The majority of my students are boys between the ages of 8 and 10 and I have been having a little trouble getting them to focus and participate in class. I think I have been having such difficulty because I haven't been able to find a topic that excites them and that they are comfortable talking about. That was until I discovered how much they all love WWE. Most of my students are too shy or embarrassed to talk to me in English even though I know they can, unless I ask them about the WWE and they can tell me all about John Cena, Undertaker and all the other WWE Superstars.  

So I decided to plan a lesson where each student drew a picture of their favorite WWE Superstar and then told the class about them. They really enjoyed the activity and I was amazed at how engaged and excited they were to use their English to tell me all about their favorite WWE Superstar. There was one student who I have never heard speak English, and who I assumed came to class because his older brother did, but he was able to tell me all about his favorite WWE Superstar (John Cena) and I was truly amazed!  

As with speaking any new language, half the battle of learning it is having the confidence to speak it, and this lesson was a great opportunity for my students to do just that. WWE Teachers' Corner was the inspiration for my lesson and I plan to incorporate the WWE in more of my lessons to help build speaking confidence.  

Thank you!

All the Best,

Hi, I'm Heba. I'm from Egypt and I teach English for second grade. We had a writing lesson which was about who do they want to be like when they grow up. Because I'm a huge WWE fan and I know the boys are fans of many superstars especially John Cena, I gave them John Cena as an example. They wrote beautiful passages about Cena, Rey Mysterio and others. It was an amazing lesson!
