Hi Lucy. I was given a class on saturdays at 8 in the morning. For three teenager two boys and one girl. they are among 14 and 15 years old. They have had 4 lessons all of them with different teachers. They are supposed to be upper intermidiate.
My problem is that they don´t want to be there. They´d rather be sleeping at their homes. They´re going to the institutes because their parents told them. They told me the previous class that they are tired of studying english! They weren´t that bad, but they just wanted the time to pass by and go home.
I was supposed to made a review and they had a quiz the same day. They told me we already have seen that topic with the other teachers, but they don´t manage well the topics. They have an idea...
Well, I don´t know how to motivate these students and furthermore, I don´t think they want to review those topics again, because they didn´t very well in the quiz. Am I supposed to be more flexible with teenagers? I have never work with them.
By the way, I´m in a spanish country and I´m not a english native teacher. So. if you find some mistakes and you don´t mind please feel free to correct me.
