Teaching someone who has never learnt english before

Unread postby margyf » 06 Oct 2007, 14:19


I was wondering if anyone knew of good webistes and books and learning material to buy.

I am looking at teaching a older polish lady who has never had any english lessons.

I want to be able to teach the fundamentals but I dont want to confuse her too much if this makes sense.

Look forward to hearing from you

I suggest you buy a good course book, such as English Language in Use or English File at beginner level. You could also use Essential Grammar in Use by Raymond Murphy.

There are lots of good sites out there (including http://www.tefl.net and http://www.englishclub.com) you could put tefl or lesson plans into a search engine and see what comes up.

all the best,
