Hi everyone, first post!
I'm looking to teach English in Japan and I have an interview in London in a few weeks! I really like the school and have some very good third party references as to their quality so that's all ok.
The interview involves me giving a 5 minute lesson to a 3-5 year old (played by the interviewer) with no English. This is the bit I'm most worried about as I am a new teacher, and have little experience teaching. I am great with kids but I don't really know what a 3-5 year old can understand, or what I can do to not screw this up!
From my research and questions I've asked my friends it seems that games, roleplay and songs are really the best things to do. I am allowed to use flash cards with vocabulary and numbers and such but I would have thought anyone sending their 3 year old to English classes would want them to learn something they could use, so I was thinking some basic introductions/names, how are you's etc. Is this the right direction?
Any advice on what I could do (specifically) for a lesson plan would be great cos I don't know if what I'm thinking is way off the mark for such a young child!
Thanks in advance!
