Try with "Headway"- beginner level ( it's a good textbook) and just follow it and add some pictures and games of you own when introducing new words, grammar structures, etc. And it should work perfectly

Hi there Echoe09

I have a fab. one to one teaching resource for private tutors and parents.

It consists of 140 games adapted for one to one use and 2 hours plus of video demos - those vids are mainly to show parents how to go about it.

The only snag is that it's for children aged 4 to 12 - level Beginner.

So many of the games won't really correspond to teaching an adult, though they are all good for teaching beginners.

The best thing I can suggest is that you watch the demo video on the site because it could give you some ideas - I'm sure it will.

Kind regards
Shelley

PS When I write a book for adults I'll let you know! (but don't hold your breath).

Definitely with an adult, use a book! They can do their homework and look back on what they've learned and feel positive about it. It is also great reinforcement.

Usually all the books start with

Hi, what's your name? My name is.......

Where are you from? I'm from .........

How old are you? (to children) I'm.............. years old.

They learn these few phrases and then get them started on a few basic vocabulary words. It is hard to teach someone who knows nothing. They have to have some building blocks of understanding.
