New people join your group weekly, but some seem to be much more fluent. What do you do?

Description

New people join your group weekly, but some seem to be much more fluent. You need another class! There isn’t another room! Or a teacher…. What do you do?

All I can do is offer you my experience, both from a rolling enrolment situation in a language school and as a conversation group leader, open to all comers.

Your number one priority is to know your learners. Then you need to know their goals. Then you can make a plan to teach them.

I hope to demonstrate this. Then we can look at materials and how to exploit them. And how to use them to share our faith.

    Elizabeth has been a teacher of Spanish and English for a very long time. After about 20 years in the public sector, she became Principal of a Christian language school, Central Language School Cambridge, in 1997. Since retiring in 2014 she learned to bake cakes. She has continued to teach one-to-one and has started an English conversation group in her church. For the last four years she has taught on a summer programme at the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, DPR Korea. The rest of her time is divided between children (three), grandchildren (six), husband (one, a retired Baptist minister) and wider family. And her garden.
