Ogholgol Nazari, Nima Shakouri


As emotional intelligence plays an important role in peoples’ lives, it can also be extended to language teaching. In this regard, it is indispensable for teachers to know how to develop emotional intelligence. The present paper made an endeavor to provide the ways to develop emotional intelligence.
