Unread postby yelena » 13 Mar 2013, 10:54


i recently started teaching my 80 years old grandmother English. it was her idea so she is very motivated to learn.
but i have some difficulties, can you please help with some techniques and maybe useful sites?
the most important thing for her is to learn a how to speak and understand English.

thank you for your help,

It's '80 year old grandmother' ;)

First you need to be yourself. Don't try to be another person.

bbclearningenglish.com has a wealth of quality material.

You could try breakingnewsenglish.com also but it depends on the level of the student.

All the best. Mark
