SOME REASONS TEACHING STAFF DOES NOT MEET THE SCHOOL REQUIREMENTS Teaching assistant has many limitations. The first one is language knowledge. Except for a small number of teacher trainees have the opportunity to go abroad, the others often learn English in the country with severe learning grammar. They also do not have many opportunities to have access to the new teaching methods. This leads to significant limitations in transmitting their English. The second constraint is not fluent in the culture of English- speaking countries. Culture and language are two factors associated with each other. At each different cultures, people have different communication rules and therefore in some situations if the user does not know the language of this rule will have difficulty in communicating. For example, the Vietnamese people are very comfortable when asked about very personal things like wages, or even the age of the people around. However,the Australian people think it is impolite. 8
CONSEQUENCES FROM THE MISMATCH There are many causes for school if teaching assistant cannot be professional or not fulfilled job requirements.
