I would like to know the way to manage the class , I teach 6 Grade students 13 years old students boys only

I find myself beating them but no hope they always do these things

I sure hope you don īt beat those kids.

Perhaps you need to motivate them in other and more physical ways.
Games - songs - conversation cards, films, chants, plays and sketches, whatever works.
The question is do you want to teach them only on your terms or do
you want to meet them on their terms too?

Boys at this age are very physical - so if you can find physical games that
incorporate English - that would be a good place to start.

Aftab and many members here have millions of great ideas.
Let īs hope they see your cry for help and come with some of their ideas.

Good luck

unfortunately some of the students which I call diabolical students turn teaching  into hellll and the toughest job on earth, I wonder why principals give to such a class a lady teacher because after all, we women are unable to maintain control on students like these, the only solution I find is to ask the headmaster to give you another class and find a man teacher for this specific class, it īs not a matter of skills and competencies but rather, a physically strong man can hush them easily

Do they have the same behaviour with other teachers?? or is it just in English?? If so, there īs something wrong! Try to find what is it.

If not, how about talking to their parents???? They need to know that if their sons keep up the "good work", they will fail to pass your subject.
 
Try different things... Just don īt get involved physically..
 
Let me know how it goes later.

Guys the problem is not in the motivation or varying the teaching techniques in the class and all of this. The problem lies in the students themselves, she teaches in Qatar (one of the gulf countries and among the richest countries in the world) and I have an idea about teaching there. And I can tell something else, you teach in a private school , not a public school because in public schools, men teach men and  women teach women. But in your case, you teach in a private school and only rich people study there, in the class,your students talk about their latest brand new cars and travels but never ever about what you teach
