Forgive me if I've missed an article somewhere as I hate to re-post questions that have been previously answered. I did look, but found nothing that specifically answered this question.
I have been asked to teach English to an Italian nanny who will be working for some friends of the family. This is a no-charge, just for fun thing (read: Uncertified and unprofessional, with no claims to such). The options where I am, a remote mining camp in Ontario, mean that professional instruction is cost prohibitive.
My pupil has limited command of english already, and is approximatley 25 years old. I have not met her and cannot offer any more information then that; I am a native English speaker.
My question is: Where do I begin? Is there a resource out there that someone could point me to that is a rough step-by-step guide to teaching? Should I be focusing on grammer, verbs, nouns, etc. first?
Thank you for your time and help on this matter.
