Hi there! I'm an ESL teacher although I haven't been teaching for long, and I'd appreciate any help you could give me for this situation:
I have a super shy one-to-one student, she's around 15, I've been teaching her for 2 years and she's still super shy with me. When it comes to speak in English, she whispers. I've tried many different activities but I think I'm doing something wrong. Her mum wants her to practise her writing, and we've been doing writing activities which are not a great fun, and which don't help her shyness.
Please, any ideas you have regarding types of activities or tips, would be appreciated
