Default Re: What age group do you prefer?

Despite all the 'baggage' that comes with teaching adults ie refusal to accept that a language can be different to theirs, trying to reason too much, using age as an excuse for not learning, lack of time and energy to do homework properly, being set in their ways etc etc I actually prefer it to teaching kids. They have more life experience and you can incorporate more 'issues' into the lessons ie relationships, current affairs etc. Clearly you have to know your group before you start spouting off about tensions in the middle east, for example, but you can usually generate good discussions.
