I'm writing to ask for your oh-so-valuable help!
I am supposed to teach a class of adults of mixed abilities. Some of them are complete beginners; some of them are already elementary, can speak and read English a little bit.
My first class isn't supposed to be based on the textbook: I am to prepare some activities to check how many of my students actually know anything
This is a General English/ Business English Course.
Now I'm really in trouble. I know many icebreakers, warmers etc. but I don't know almost any which I could use for total/false beginners class. I don't want my group to be either bored or frightened to death
I've prepared some information gap activities connected with introducing oneself, but that won't take 60 minutes.
Have you got any ideas? Share them with me, please! I'll be very grateful.
