Difference between teaching theories and real life classroom

I have taught English to many different kinds of students depending on their level, their needs and especially their geolocalization. Through my experience, I could see that the best way to teach is to know our students and to identify their motivation. Despite of all the theories related to teaching, I could notice that there is a huge difference between those theories and the real life in the classroom. Therefore, we (teachers) need to understand our students first in order to help them well in their learning situation. In this presentation, I will talk about:
1 - Malagasy situational background
2 - Teaching theories
3 - Classroom real life
4 - Some valuable advice worth sharing among teachers
