939. The planning to follow
I have planned a
sequence of pieces of communication to implement along the course I teach to adult
learners, most of them already retired. They’re excellent learners. They wish
to learn English for example for their trips abroad.
The sequence is: words –
phrases – sentences – conversations and presentations.
The basis for the
material we use is on worksheets with short stories and meaningful-for-them sentences.
As you can see, the approach I follow in my classes is communicative (mainly). One
example: I ask them a question and they respond with a phrase: “What does the
man help himself with, to stroll?” And the students will answer, “With a stick”. / Photo
