I used to teach a class of Tibetan monks that were mostly first and second grade aged. They were absolutely crazy for the first few classes. I couldn't get them to be quite or pay attention. After...

Problems with preview

Hi,

Re: conversation help for teenagers

At least for the two first year classes, the kids probably don't have a lot of vocabulary to draw from. You'll need to introduce some vocabulary and simple grammar if you want to get them...

Re: Is non-biased ESL possible?

Besides the fact that it would make English easier to teach if everyone spoke it the same, I don't see any other reasons that would make a Universal English worthwhile. There are too many countries...

Re: Do you team teach?

I team teach in Japan, too. Luckily, all of my teachers are really cool and don't just use me as a tape recorder. The system has its pros and cons, but I've definitely learned a lot about teaching...

Re: How to help a student overcome his anxiety?

I think the role playing will be really helpful, especially if you push to get him out of his comfort zone (not in a mean way, of course). From what you said, he seems more relaxed when he's...
