Hi, I am a recently qualified TEFL teacher and up until now have taught beginners/ post-beginners level in small groups. I now have my first adult intermediate one-to-one lesson and not sure how to plan it- any help would be most welcome!
My student wants to work on conversation and pronunciation so my thoughts are to start the lesson off with us both writing down ten questions which the other one has to pick from and answer eg where did you grow up; what did you study at university etc. This will enable us to get to know one another and also give me an idea of her level. Also if I answer the questions too it will feel like less of an interrogation. Does this sound ok?
I also thought of an exercise on small talk just to get us started perhaps?
I am hoping to use this lesson as a fact find to plan our future lessons and assess her needs.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
