How to teach simple things

One of the lessons I’m learning, especially while teaching ESL, is…

“You can teach complex words by explaining them, but you can only teach simple words by using them.”

The same applies to simple lessons in general. And the same applies to most important things in life.

The best way, maybe even the only way, to teach the simplest, most important things in life is to say, “Follow me.” And then go do it and be it and live it and make it alive.
