| | Teaching adults of various levels
I am just starting a new job at an NGO where part of my responsibility is to teach English to the staff. I have been told that each of the staff is at a different level in his/her English ability, so I think I might be teaching them one-on-one or in very small groups. I have taught children and high schoolers before, but this will be my first time teaching adults and in such a small setting. Does anyone have any advice on what techniques work well for teaching adults? Also, I'm thinking I will need to do some kind of assessment in the beginning to determine each adult's level of English proficiency. I have never had to do that before, so I would welcome any suggestions on how to do assessments. Thanks!
