I'd posted a thread asking for suggestions for EAP classes on the esl activities and games forum. It turns out that I'm going to be teaching pre- sessional listening and speaking Ielts classes to future Master students at Glasgow University.
I've never actually prepared students for Ielts exams and am a wee bit stuck.
I've taught speaking classes before and enjoy it immensely, but never 90 minute classes!
I only have the student's book (no Ielts Teachers book available) and am terrified that the first lesson will drag.
My class is comprised mainly of Asian students, who are notoriously shy, so that is adding to my sense of growing panic.
After talking them through the administrative side of the course, I was thinking of preparing a needs -analysis questionnaire, just so I can get a feel about the class, and playing a getting to know you game for the first 20 minutes, then slowly easing into the activities in the student's book.
Any other suggestions?
Am rather desperate!
Thanks you all in advance!
