I'm a recently qualified TEFL teacher and have been teaching on and off (subbing) since I qualified.
Also I'm due to begin a private english lesson with a Russian man. His conversational skills are fine and he has no trouble communicating and so just wants to concentrate on grammar. I am at a loss as to how to do this.
I did a test on him and now know what his weaknesses are. His grammar weaknesses range from stuff a beginner would learn to stuff that you wouldn't teach until upper intermediate. I have Murphy's grammar book (blue) but I want to know how to make the lessons more interesting as I don't want to just explain the grammar to him from Murphy's book and have him do the practice excercises, he could do this on his own. Does anyone know any grammar activities that work well on a one-to-one basis or where I could find out more information.
If you need more information as to his specific weaknesses I'd be happy to provide it.
Thanks in advance for your help
