I'm very frustrated. I teach English at a company in Spain. My students are complete beginners, aging between 30 and 55 I would guess - 5 in total.
I do really simple stuff, mainly new vocab connected to easy sentences which help them to use the new vocab (e.g. people description with She's got dark hair, she is tall or food together with I like, I don't like, etc). I play games such as bingo, memory etc so they have to use the new stuff over and over again.
I only teach 2 hours once a week and they forget everything from one week to the other. Vocabulary as well as pronunciation. I pronounce one word a thousand times and they still don't get it right - not even repeating it straight away. I do back-chaining, and then it works, but 2 minutes later it's forgotten.
I don't know what to do. It takes so much time to prepare the classes (flashcards, etc) and I feel there is no reward whatsoever....
Can you help please? THANKS!
