Salut Ã* tous!
I'm a young NZder working in France as a lectrice at a French University.
My classes are for the most part not too difficult; however I have a group of 3rd Year students (final year of their undergraduate English degree) and I have a conversation class of 45 minutes each week with them.
They are a responsive and well behaved class (I was teaching in a primary school last year, so imagine the difference!), however I am seriously struggling for ideas.
The only guidelines I have been given for this class is: get them to talk! I am not expected to teach grammar, to get through a syllabus etc, but just to get them talking. I don't want to play too many games, and I also want to teach them things that will be useful.
Tips? Hints? Suggestions?
All would be welcome
