Do you actually teach? Or is it more about just making it fun in the class room?

I read stories where being an ESL teacher is more about just entertaining the students than actually teaching. If your white sometimes they just want you to be that poster boy as a white teacher.
It's a mix. I hate this word at times, but it's "edutainment." Content dressed up to be fun. That's how I teach in China, and the students eat it up. If you're going to do things that way, I recommend studying your students' language and learning their sense of humor. This is a pretty good way for culture lessons since most humor comes from observation.
